    OH so it's like a paper mask not a metal one, so you're seeing the fiber ends etc where it wasn't cut perfectly?

    I always wondered how that happened....

    I also don't understand why they don't make glass ones so you can get the edge effect without worrying about struggling to catch the edges of the film... lol

    You're being facetious, right?

    No I don't print optically... I have a great enlarger but haven't used it yet... It's in the basement, it came with metal plates to put film in but the edges are metal and wouldn't produce funky edges.

    I can't tell from that tiny image what that is... :/ is there glass on that?

    Axomat has metal negative carrier, so I taped some sellotape on the edge of metal to be sure that negative will not be damaged.

    On focomat V35 they have different negative carriers: with glass, without, 24x36mm, 26x38mm (so I heard, did not see it in live)... my negative carrier is 24x36 - so I did rasp job on that one too. Good think that top is anti newton glass that is bigger than 24x36mm.

    Stone:

    The example I posted (post # 20) was printed with a carrier with plates that have clean, metal edges. The "funky" stuff is a result of the light source and reflections off of those edges.

    Thanks, interesting. I have a color head thing (like the head produces the colors I don't need filters) so would that light source still leave a funky edge?

    Could be.

    The character of those outside-the-negative images is a lot like "bokeh" - dependant on a whole bunch of factors. The nature of the light source (diffused (like your colour head), collimated semi-diffused, or collimated point-source) is no doubt one of them.

    I have a couple of friends who have two identical Omega D5 enlargers, save and except the light sources. I should probably encourage them to experiment.

    Cool, I have a D2 now but sadly won't for a VERY long time be able to set it up. It's big haha but I've got all the stuff! Even Cibichrome tubes haha

    I have the 25x37mm carrier for my leica V35, it's a fiddly little thing to get the neg perfectly aligned (I prefer a little more wiggle room for the borders, like 26mmx38mm) but does get you the clean border with no filing, unlike the standard carrier for the v35.
