    617 colour. How do you print?

    for those of you using a 6x17 format, how do you print your images? Do you scan and print, use an enlarger, or send it out to a lab to print?

    I am interested particularly with regard to colour images, although any info on printing black and white 6x17 would also be helpful.

    You could print 6x17 negatives with an 8x10" enlarger.

    If im making a serious print I use my Durst 2501 enlargers to print from 6x17 format or it I want to make a quick test print I use my De Vere 5108. To see these beasts of machines please visit link below.

    6x17 should be printable with a 5x7" enlarger.

    As David said 5x7 will do.
    I just got a 617 camera and will have the same problem with colors. For B&W i can use my 138S but for colors i would need to try to widen a negative holder on my Beseler 45MXT
    Anyone know how much of a 6x17 a beseler could print?

    If you decide to get a scan, I suggest a Creo scan. It's a high-end flatbed. Have a wet scan done and have a pigment print made from the scan. It's not a silver process but I do a fair amount of this and the prints I have made compare well with Dye-Transfers done in the past. You may want to talk to your printer before ordering the scan.

    Chrome in San Diego Ca has a Scitex-Creo machine. Have a look at their web page. The custom scans are at the bottom of the scan page.

    I made a neg holder for my De Vere 5108, which is perfect for B&W or colour, although at the moment I'm not shooting any colour film - purely B&W.
