    I'm after a reasonably priced lightbox to view my slides on (not one
    of those plastic ones that run off batteries though) in Syd.
    Can someone recommend any and what would they be worth roughly. Just
    after something basic.

    Also, what loupes do ppl everyone use....?
    I'm looking to get an 8x (if i can source one locally), not sure of
    brands though as there seems to be a huge deviation in price,

    Thanks in advance,

  2. I have one of those and it's the best lighbox I have ever had :)
    What about a old waist level finder off a medium format camera? They work
    really well and are as clear as!

    apparently a 50mm lens will do if you don't want to spend much too

    re the lightbox, i heard that sometimes hospitals upgrade their x-ray ones
    and the old ones are left lying around...urban legend?

    Try these guys.... They have quiet a bit of gear and a lot of
    knowledge. they should be able to help you out.

    Not a huge amount on the website, but worth giving them a ring at
