    I recently came upon a couple of 6x9 cameras which appear to be in fair condition. I'd like to try using them but my enlarger is a Beseler which is limited to 6x7.
    Is there any reason that this enlarger can't do 6x9 if I modify a neg. carrier to that size?
    I'd really rather not acquire another enlarger just to try the 6x9 format.
    Thanks for any info.

    The light source is the real limit. It's unlikely to cover 6x9.

    Your lens might not cover it as well. That being said, if you try it, please report back :smile:
