    Hello folks,
    I would like to buy a proper contact printing frame with hinged back, vintage or modern (I have too little skill to make one and would rather spend the time needed for the making of the frame in the darkroom..)
    I am looking for something that would accept 24x30cm (or 11x14inch) paper.
    Due to postage and customs I would prefer buying within EU.

    Thank you for offers - or maybe a hint where to look for an affordable one (e. g. no lotus camera for me, sadly)

    Thank you for reply - I was not aware of them, but I don't think they fit my need.. These days I am putting my paper and neg between two sheets of glass - which is in fact similar to this solution. What I am after is a frame with hinged back so that I can open it an inspect the print during exposure (I am talking Van Dyke and similar alt processes here) and avoid taping the negative to paper to ensure keeping the neg in place..

    Thank you, I am well aware of them - they are my last resort - that is if I don't find anything friendlier to our family budget, even if it would be a bit smaller - 18x24cm is minimum..
