My first experience with LDS films
- I went up to the church to view the film.
It was not what I expected.
Their viewer was horrible. The image was so huge as to be
unreadable. There is no way to print. There is no way to adjust the
size / focus of what you are viewing.
I have viewed several films at the local libray. Their viewers are
great, you can focus / make bigger / smaller, print. But the viewer
at the church is not at all like that.
The woman at the church advised me to bring a camera to copy whatever
I need. I am just not sure it will be worth ordering other films if
it is like this. What good is it to make a copy of something you
The film is loaded above the screen viewed. Light comes from above
that. There is probably 2 1/2 to 3 feet between the screen and the
film. I held a piece of paper halfway between the screen and the
film, and it was somewhat clearer and less distorted (smaller), and
somewhat readable. However there is no way to photograph that.
