Description

Slide viewer is basically a hand held device which can be used to look at film transparencies or photographic images. It is used for individual viewing and uses natural light or incorporated light source. The earliest slide viewers were introduced in 1930s to market 35 mm film strips.

On offer here is the Photax Solar 3 slide viewer for colored transparencies in 2×2 mounts. The company Photax was a British company which was was bought by Arley group in 1990; and Photax took over Paterson Ltd. as well. A slide is placed in the slot which pushes a contact switch power to the bulb which draws it from batteries in the battery unit lamp; since it is the only time it draws power, slide viewers can retain batteries for a long time.

This particular slide viewer is present in an exceptional condition, with no apparent damage to the body or lenses. It comes with original manual and slightly worn out packaging. The body is made of white and gray plastic.

It was a common practice especially in UK, where slide viewers were used to view family photos as they gave a clear picture once they were supplied with a light source. They can still be found in vintage shops; and are a great buy if one wants to relive the memories of old times.
