    Porta-Trace / Gagne 1118-2C reviews

    11 x 18" Light Box is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Should Have Bought It A Long Time Ago The surface can hold 2 sheets of 35mm negatives or slides side by side, making it so much easier to see an entire roll of film at the same time. I shoot 35mm black-and-white as well as colour slides. Previously I have been using things like the bedroom window, table lamps and battery-powered slide viewers. The ability to see the entire roll at the same time make a big difference and I wish I had bought it years ago. I know it's made of some metal, plastic and a few lamps and does not seem to worth this much money. That's what I had been telling myself over the years. However over the years I have not been able to find the time and effort to build one from scratch on my own. So there you go.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vast Improvement This light box is great for viiewing 2 pages of slides side by side. Evenly lit and bright, it is a joy to use, and a substantial improvement over my old one. When tilted, however, the slide pages fall off. it would help if there were a small lip preventing this, hence the 4 instead of five stars. The construction is strong, and has the feel of q quality product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful tool! I work as a professional illustrator, and bought this lightbox a few weeks ago to help with altering and fine-tuning my sketches. So far it's been a great purchase! The lighting is very even, and the box turns on easily - just push and hold the button for a few seconds and the lights will come on reliably. The surface is also a great size - wide enough to comfortably work with my drawings. There really aren't any major downsides... I suppose if I had to pick on something it would be the wire legs that left scuff marks on my table. But that's not a major issue, nor does it alter the effectiveness of the product. Also, I do wish that this had a carrying handle, but really it works fine without one of those. All in all, I would recommend this light box!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great proofing box next to my scanner I needed to review slides and negatives before scanning and this works great. Good light and small size works in my work flow.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from porta-trace Gagne light box works Works as expected. A thinner design would be nice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for reviewing negatives It's sturdy, lightweight, and with two lamps instead of one it is plenty bright. I use this to review negative film before scanning. I am glad I got the 11x18 instead of the 10x12 since even the 11x18 seems smaller than I thought it would be.
