    Porta-Trace / Gagne 1012-2C reviews

    10 x 12" Stainless Steel Light Box with Two Lamps is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I'm using this to take photos of old B&W negatives and it's working out great - the box has very bright, even light. Initially I was going to get a slide scanner but since my negatives are odd sizes and as large as 4 x 5, a scanner that could handle them plus a special holder was out of my price range. I read about using a light box instead and for the price, thought I'd give it a try. I made some crude plexiglass holders to help keep the negatives flat and am using a macro lens on a DSLR and I'm absolutely thrilled with the results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect proportion proofs positive pics I have almost 10K slides to review, and restore or destroy. With the sharp light to the corners of the frame, more slides can be viewed accurately more quickly. Thanks Gagne and B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Product except for one Oops! I turned on the light box and it looked like there was some stuff on the surface of the white plexiglass. I started to wipe it with a wet paper towel and it wouldn't come off. I started to get mad and I thought it was defective. As it turned out, I noticed a corner peeling up a little and then stupid me realized they had protected the white plexiglass with white plastic film for shipping. Oops! I peeled it off and the surface of the plexiglass was beautiful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Economical Way to View slides The box allows you to see in brilliant color a sheet of 20 slides. It is exactly what I needed at a reasonable price. There is one small problem. The electrical cord is very short. Unfortunately it also has a three prong grounded plug. I have three extension cords but none of them accept a three prong plug. I assume one is made but it's a pain to get another one. However it has a silver lining in that I've placed the light box on a chair to get it close to the wall socket and it happens to be at a perfect height.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 x 12 Light Box by Porta-Trace Because I lost my darkroom whem moving in to a smaller house , I needed something better than holding up against a light for sorting negatives and transperancies to be scanned in to a digital medium .This Light Box is small and portable but most important , it has the right and even illumination over the entire surface !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for the medical office of 2013! Now that almost all (but not quite all) xrays are transmitted in digital form, there is very little need for a traditional Xray viewbox. Occasionally, however, a patient will arrive with a hardcopy Xray to be read. Unless you need something larger, this fits the bill quite nicely and is much less expensive than dedicated medical viewboxes. It allows photography of the radiograph, too, so the hardcopy can be returned to the patient and a digital image uploaded to the patient's electronic record.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Macro Friend I use this light box for macro photography. I borrowed a friends a couple of months back on fell in love with the results. I used it to shoot flowers and leaves. The leaf shots turned out amazing and I ended up doing a project for my schooling with them. This is a must have!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Little Bright I've been using the box to view 35mm negative sheets and slides. The light is brighter then I expected. Probably should have bought the single bulb version. Other then that, the unit appears to be well made and is attractive, with the stainless steel construction.
