    Did Beseler ever make one of these? I have a 6x7 but it would be nice to be able to print the entire area of the negative from my Moskva 2.

    I remember working in a camera store in Wash DC when the Beseler salesman came around with the first negatrans, 1968 - 1969, as I recall. I got a 35mm one for $15. It seems like the 6x7 and maybe 6x9 (?) formats came out around the same time, I'm a bit foggy on this, though, I wasn't shooting 2 1/4 at the time.
    Beseler made them for some years, so I would think they made some.

    I don't know about ever, but as of the 1999 catalog PDFs that I have stashed away, they listed the 120 negatrans as "8082 NEGATRANS CARRIER FOR 6x6 AND 6x7 FILM," though they also listed a 645 pressure plate to go with it.

    "Maybe" the apertures can be widened with damaging functionality??

    The Negatrans had sliding pieces at either side so it could be expanded from 6x6 to 6x7.
