Opemus 3 Diffuser
I bought a Meopta Opemus 3 to do
120 film exclusively, i have a durst to do 35mm
Problem is, the frosted glass, i presume its the light diffuser
has broke in 2, i tried to glue it back, but you can see the glue
line when you try to enlarge a negative.
I took it out and tried it, it still seems to work ok, is this glass
a "Vital" part and if it is, where could i get another ?
If the diffuser is square or rectangular you can make your own. The following procedure for making a focusing screen also makes a nice diffusion screen.
Unfotunatly its round, it may be, i need to goto a glass place and see if they will cut me a round peice
Then apply the technique you posted above ?
I have just priced this in a Glass place near me,
Clear its £1.50 GBP and Satin (frosted) £4.50 GBP
here is a pic of the satin glass, obviously it will be round for my purpose
Buy some lens UV filter for 2-3$ and make it frosted (same as diffusion screen).
At the risk of sounding stupid lol, how would lens UV filter work on an enlarger light diffuser ?
Using scissors like two pins tool you can unscrew inside ring.There is always two rings on rounded filters ;)
Ok i get it now, thanks for that :)
