    Do you mean the exposure analyzer, Peter?

    Thomas, you can never have too much equipment. The color analyzer for the enlarger would be a neat addition if you ever used it for color. It has a special lensboard for integrated measurements and also a baseboard probe for spot readings. I used my MOD III for color in the 1970s and I think the meter cost as much as the whole enlarger back then. Something I only dreamt about, now they are giving them away for free....

    Would be cool to try it, Peter. How much for shipping to 55104?

    Thomas, I had a head slapping moment after a lot of frustration not being able to fit an easel under my Saunders 6770 when I realized the negative carriers were designed to also fit in sideways. Maybe take a look at that.

    p,s. Does this mean that you don't want your Leitz v35 anymore? I certainly know a good home for it!

    By the way, the Minolta lenses are pretty spectacular. I did a test of a bunch of 50's a while back (Schneider, Rodenstock, Fuji, Minolta, Computar, S-Orthoplanar) and the Minolta was right at the top. It had lots of chromatic aberrations wide open but it was super sharp stopped down. One of these days I will get around to scanning the results and posting them.

    Hi Patrick,

    The neg holders go in one way only. There's even a groove on each side to make sure you don't screw up.
    It is possibly the dumbest design for a negative carrier I have seen. It holds the film flat for sure, because the prints are just amazingly sharp, from corner to corner, without glass (almost no dust, woohoo!), so they got a lot of things right with this enlarger. But, those little tidbits I just can't believe.

    The V35 is my baby, and it stays right here... No risk of that one leaving. But thanks for asking .

    Appreciate your thoughts, and your results on enlarging lenses confirm my suspicion that the Minolta lens is wicked sharp. I use it at f/8 and f/11, and am thoroughly impressed. I get enlargements at 9x9 size from 120 that I quality wise can't tell apart from prints made with 4x5 negatives in the Omega. Not even in the grain department. I'm convinced I'll come up with something that works with this enlarger, and have an idea to wall mount it that I think will work out very nicely.
