The new reflecta light panel A5 has a viewing area sized 190 x 140 mm, so that 6 mounted 35mm slides can be viewed at the same time. The LED lamps provide consistent illumination of the viewing area, which means that also the border areas can be used for viewing transparencies.
With the help of the reflecta Light Pads one can correct pictures, enhance sketches or monitor animation drawings. Small picture slides, stored in archive sleeves, can be viewed on the Light Pads without having to remove them from their casing. The Light Pad is an important device in printing, as well as in film, photo and tattoo studios. It can be used to place transparent material such as films or tracing paper over each other, fixate and then edit them.
While a hobby photographer may hold up a slide to the light, the professional or semi-professional photographer will use a Light Pad to view his material. For those who use film material (slides and negatives) or all types regularly, they will not get around the use of a light pad.
The sleek design is creditable - this light panel integrates very well in a modern working environment due to its very low thickness.

For the cleaning of the light panel we recommend the anti static cloth from Kinetronics. With that you can remove effectively dust and fluffs from the surface of the light panel. Furthermore, electrostatic charges, which adduct and hold dust, are discharged. So you can avoid that film material gets dirty when putting on the light panel.
With the help of an anti static brush you can clean a surface (film or light panel surface) from dust and fluffs and discharge electric charges at the same time. Discharging is important because electric charge adducts dust as is generally known. Kinetronics anti static brushes are available in different sizes.
If the glass surface of a scanner or a light panel is covered with strong dust we recommend the use of the Kinetronics cleaning fluid PLCD. That's a high value cleaning fluid, which has been developed especially for the cleaning of optical glasses and glass surfaces. With a couple of drops you can effectively remove dust and dirt.
When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
Anti-dust spray is used to clean film material - no matter if it's mounted slides or film strips - by removing dust and fluffs with a flimsy current of air without touching the film material at all. There is no better, more comfortable and more efficient way to clean your film material.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film. With such a pair of tweezers which have special flattened blades you can very comfortably put on films on the light panel and sort them.
