    Porta-Trace / Gagne 1012-2L reviews

    1012-2 Stainless Steel LED Light Box (10 x 12") is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Just For Viewing Transparencies I used to own an older version (non-LED) of this product many years ago which I used for viewing transparencies. Tossed it when I stopped shooting film about 10 years ago. This new version is somewhat brighter and the lighting is a lot more even. Perfect for what I plan on using it for which is to backlight subject matter for some macro work. I had originally ordered the light panel style but the one that I received was defective, as were several others that the B&H folks tested when I returned the original. This is why I went back to the box style.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine but build quality would not win an award Was looking for 220-250V unit so bought this one mainly because the price was acceptable. When I received it there was a label on the power label clearly stating it that it was not a dual voltage device. However B&H confirmed with the manufacturer that the label was in fact an error. So, yes it does work on 220-250v power outlets. A metal rivet shank was rattling around inside the unit and stainless steel construction is a bit flimsy - indications of poor build quality. But as I said, the price was good.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works. It works as it was designed to. Dimensions work out OK for me. I can position all the 35mm negs from a 36 roll of film in one go. (6 strips with six frames). Press the on button and the top gets evenly lit with a cool LED light source. But the design is clunky, almost ugly. I only take it out when needed. The better designed products cost more and B&H was out of stock with a warning about needing 14 days to place an order before shipping. Couldn't wait. But this does the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for copying old Negatives. I use this to copy my old negatives. It does a great job. I just put the negatives on top and use my copy stand and macro lens to copy the negatives. Nice even light.
    Date published: 2016-12-20
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk! After opening the box, a rivet fell on the floor that secured the base plate to the side frame. While I was examining the unit further, one of the rubber feet fell on the floor. Another rivet failure. Needless to say, it was returned for a refund.
    Date published: 2017-06-15
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bottom came broken - I'm returning it. This is bad quality control, when one of the bottom legs that also keeps the bottom cover in place is broken, and another of the thingies that keep the bottom in place is broken.
    Date published: 2017-02-03
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recommend this product to all my friends! Great light source! It is well made and provides and excellent light source which I use for copying slides along with the Nikon slide copier attachment with my macro lens.
    Date published: 2017-02-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size for small spaces I am using this unit to review old slides and negatives and my spare room is very small. The small size of this unit fits in very well.
