    Yes, dodging and burning, represented in a primitive way. Which is which is explained in the text, which admittedly wouldn't mean a lot to many outside Turkey. Most of it is burning, though.

    Google chrome does automatic translation - I understand most of it

    But I agree, the V35 is so easy to use!
    NB23, are You sure, that Your are having a non modified V35?
    V35 have a hybrid light source, not diffuser.
    The hybrid light source is one of the features that makes V35 the ultimate tool for 35mm.

    I have the latest... Still, the Ic and IIc are better for me. I still love the V35, very hard to argue about how well it's made.

    Here are the pictures. As you can see - red filter attachment is so fragile that it broke during transport. But I don't see that as a big problem , it will be fixed easily.

    If you're developing negatives for use in condenser enlargers then, yes, you might not like the results coming from the V35 so much. But if you develop to a higher gamma for the V35, the results will be great.

    ...hey, Darko, did you manage to fix your broken red filter? If so, how did you go about it? Yup, I have managed to break mine in the same area - spoke to several people about this issue and it looks like a weak point in the design.

    Please let me know your solution. Thanks.

    Curious, I have removed the red filter below the lens on my enlarger. Thought it was only useful for dodging and burning contact prints. What do you use the red filter for?
