    I bought this thing a while ago on a whim and ended up not buying control strips. I paid $50 for it but I'm open to offers. If there's interest I can post pictures but it's not terribly interesting. It comes with power cable and calibration strip as well as an old C41 reference strip that nobody bothered to throw out. It's one of those automated minilab models capable of reading a wide number of commercial control strips through transmission and reflection. Just thought I'd put that out there.

    does it read negatives like regular densitometers?

    It's automated. It's designed for checking a standardized color process (generally RA4 or C41) with control strips and monitoring changes over time. You might be able to jury-rig the thing to do something else if you really wanted to. A strip feeds in the front using guides to line it up with the sensor and a motor feeds it through.
