    focomat V35

    Finally I have it - it took me some time to find it here in Poland.

    Man, it is heavy! Man, it is sturdy! Oh, it looks so good!
    Now on first occasion I will test it. I have Moersch eco developer, and also for the first time I will try Dektol ... life is good

    Recently acquired one myself and have used it during about four printing sessions, now. Really a pleasure to use once you get the autofocus set. Previously used a Valoy II, which worked great but the V35 removes some steps from the printing process. Just turn it on and go. I've even been thinking about selling my Valoy II!

    Did yours come with the red filter that goes below the lens?

    Also, as far as Dektol goes, it's a fine print developer but it doesn't last very long in the tray. I used it for a long time, mostly out of habit, but have since moved onto LPD.

    Enjoy! Let us know how your printing goes.

    I own the V35. Quite the Cadillac (Mercedes for Europeans)!
    However, I don't use it muchnext to my Ic and IIc because of the subpar diffuser rendition versus the Condensers.

    But I agree, the V35 is so easy to use!

    Yes, red filter is there. Also I got some complex timer with it.

    If it's not too much trouble, would you mind posting a couple photos of the red filter and how it attaches? Mine came without and I'd like to find a way to "make" my own.

    Also, I have an english-language copy of the manual if you need / want it. Send me your email in a pm.

    Nice blog, but I wonder what does those red, green, blue, yellow and pink paint marks represent. I presume its dodging and burning but I cannot figure out which one is what.
