    Hello to all!
    I will print some 6x7 negatives on my Durst L1200 with CLS450 color head. Do I need different femobox for this? I have femobox 35, 66 and 450.Can I use my femobox 450 for 6x7 negatives? Or should I get femobox 69?

    Thanks
    Darek J.

    They make a 6x9, but the 4x5 will work. I use AN 4x5 glass with the 4x5 box when printing full frame + verification border. I also tape off the extra glass and use the blades to cut down on the extra light. I have a glass set dedicated to this otherwise it would gum up the glass I use for 4x5.

    As mrcallow said, it will work, although the exposure times will be longer' other than that go for it.

    Thank You guys!
    Well, I'll use my femobox 450N for 6x7 and I see how it goes.
