    I have a V35 and would like to find either of the not-color filter modules. I'd prefer the B&W module. Has anyone heard of one for sale recently?

    I'd also like to buy an original dustcover in good condition, but I expect that will be nigh impossible.

    Thanks,
    Heath

    I only see these items on ebay.
    German ebay (ebay.de) seems to have more Focomat stuff than regular ebay.com
    Not many stores have darkroom gear, of any type.

    I didn't expect anyone to have new stock, of course, and had looked at eBay (in the US), but it never occurred to me to look on ebay.de (doh!).

    Thanks. I see several interesting items there.

    The VC module is what I use on mine. Just make sure the glass filter is clear, or your printing times will be painfully long. Ask me how I know. :smile:

    What I like most about the VC module on my V35 is that you can keep times constant when testing for another
    contrast grade.

    Also very easy handling when split grading !
