Comments about Pana Vue Pana-Vue #1 Illuminated Slide Viewer for 35mm Transparencies:

I received the Pana-Vue #1, made sure the batteries were inserted correctly, then put in a slide. Nothing. Put the batteries in another device to make sure the batteries were okay. Put the bulb in a flashlight to make sure the bulb was okay. Everything checked out, but I could not get this thing to work. Then I went to work trying to figure out how this slide viewer got its juice. I was able to discern that a connection was not being made and I bent one of the copper connectors so the existing gap was no longer there. I got it working but, really, this is a VERY poorly made product and the electrical design looks like something out of the early days of electricity. Now that I have it working, the image of the slides is slightly distorted and not bright enough. Don't waste your money.

It doesn't occupy a lot of space - quick to use. I previewed nearly 500 slides in a couple of afternoons - 2-3 hours at a time.

Comments about Pana Vue Pana-Vue #1 Illuminated Slide Viewer for 35mm Transparencies:

This viewer does exactly what I wanted it to do. I am able to look at I don't know how many hundred slides taken over the last 50 years and pick the ones that I want to convert/scan to digital. I can do that and keep the original too. Wonderful!!
