I have both Colorplans and use the CF exclusively if I have glassless mounts.
I prewarm (not preheat) the slides before projecting. The curving comes by
moisture I think, not by temperature, i.e. if the moisture vanishes they
project perfect with the CF.  

I have the Hama thin mounts (1.3 mm) to be used with the LKM-magazines, where
the slides are pretty loose in, so they can bend themselves to fit the CF's

BTW, I use a computer to play a soundtrack and controll the projector and with
the CF it is a perfect show.
