Subject: Re: Microfilm: Positive or Negative?
We have both positive and negative film in our library. We quit getting
negative film in the 1960's.
I have found that most people are put off by using the negative film even
though our machine prints a positive copy from the negative. There is
something about the dark screen that puts them off.
By the way, our new machine is a Minolta RP606Z. We have been pleased with it
so far (we've had it almost a full semester). It makes great copies from both
the negative and positive, even pictures.
Hope this helps.
