    Can you suggest a portable light table and a loupe for the viewing 6x6 slides?
    Thanks.

    Discontinued in US of A, but not in the rest of the world. Astia you can still buy in Japan and import it your self.

    An incident light meter will give the most consistent results with slide film. Slides work like digital cameras, exposure-wise. You have to expose for correct exposure of the light tones, unlike negative films, where the dark tones are what you expose for. An incident meter is designed to expose for the highlights automatically. I get the best results with slide film by using an incident meter and giving the exposure indicated, except where there are VERY bright tones you need to preserve detail (like snow), where a half-stop less exposure helps preserve detail.

    Perhaps another thing I should mention, I will be shooting these in a studio for some portraits for school. I assume I take into account everything state before for this environment as well?

    Japanexposures may still have it, and Fuji is notorious for not updating their web sites, but it's definitely discontinued in all sizes:

    Thanks.
    1. Loupe:
    I can highly recommend the Schneider 3x medium format loupe ( http://www.schneider-kreuznach.com/f...hoer_lupen.htm ).
    - excellent optical quality
    - outstanding sharpnness
    - no chromatic abberations
    - no distortion
    - you get almost a little bit of 3D effect
    - usable both for slides and prints (the foot is changeable: transparent for prints, dark for slides)
    - delivered in a nice, very stable box for transportation
    - this loupe has an image circle of 8cm x 8cm, therefore you can even use it for 6x9cm slides (you loose only 0,5cm on each side, which doesn't matter).
    I use it for 4,5x6; 6x6 and 6x9 slides.

    Viewing medium format slides with this loupe is absolutely stunning.

    I don't know for distributors in the Ukraine. But you may order it from Germany. For example at
    http://www.greiner-photo.com/en/ (I've had very good experiences with them) or at
    http://www.lumiere-shop.de/index.php...32&next_page=2

    2. Portable light table:
    Use a light table with daylight, color temperature of 5000 - 5500°K.
    Lots of different manufacturers are offering them, for example
    Kaiser: http://www.kaiser-fototechnik.de/en/...timent.asp?w=5
    Dörr: http://www.doerrfoto.de/Produkte/index.html

    Best regards,
    Henning
