Questions and Answers
THE PRODUCT IS EXCELLENT FOR VIEWING NEGATIVES BUT NOT TO PHOTOGRAPH THEM. THE TYPE OF LIGHT SOURCE (WHATEVER IT IS) CREATES A ROLLING BAR EFFECT WHEN THE SHUTTER IS TRIGGERED, SIMILAR TO THAT WHICH IS SEEN WHEN PHOTOGRAPHING TELEVISION SCREENS.
HOPE THIS HELPS.
By the way plexiglass is not glass its some sort of polycarbonate plastic, so it can be scratched.
You could consider buying a piece of 1/8" clear glass to lay on top and do your cutting on that. Should not cost too much, and glass does not scratch nearly as easy as plexiglass does. Hope this helps:)
