    Saunders 35mm proofer

    This is a bit of a rare and unusual item. It's made to fit on an Omega D5 / D6 and is placed where you would normally put a negative carrier.

    It fits 35mm film in 3 strips of 6, with the main body of the proofer sliding so that you're printing 9 seperate images at any time.

    The great thing about this type of proofer is that it will print proofs of any size you want, on whatever size paper you want, you're not limited to the size of the contact proofs that most people are used to.

    Item is extremely clean and in great shape. $50

    Sorry for the lack of photos, I just wanted to put this up before the wknd and it's currently sealed in a plastic bag that doesn't help in that endeavor, either. However, just ask for photos if you're interested and I'll try and get them to you as soon as I can.

    Paypal or Money Order preferred. Shipping is extra.

    used a similar device on an omega D2...terrific way to proof or just make unique in-a-series prints of images.

    wish i could find one for my D2...oh well...

    happy trails,

    breathe, relax and enjoy.

    I use a 4x5 neg carrier to do this, but it's clumsy. Sounds like a nice tool. Won't fit a D2?
