I took the 120 negatives from Ithaca to Cameras, Inc. last night, and also picked up a used light table. The light table is the perfect size for looking at a whole archival sheet full of slides, and the color is much better than holding a slide up in front of either a white portion of the computer monitor or a light bulb. Once I get my loupe from B&H;, I’ll be all set.

As a side note, I did some shopping for the light table and loupe at Hunt’s Photo in Melrose and found them to be completely un-helpful. They lacked any real knowledge about the items they tried to sell me, were seriously overpriced, and the customer service was severely lacking. Guess I know where I won’t be going again…

The Ithaca pictures should be back on Friday.
