    Zone VI Enlarger (Type 1) Negative Carriers

    Hi Everyone -

    Does anyone know where you can purchase Zone VI negative carriers - especially 6x7 and 35mm? Other an EBAY...

    Thanks in advance.

    Those negative carriers haven't been made for many years. You'll have to watch Ebay, and expect to wait a while and pay a lot. You can make negative carriers though. Here's what I did: have a piece of single strength glass cut to the full size of your negative stage. Then have a thin piece of plexy cut to the same size. Tape one edge of the two pieces together to make a hinged sandwich. Finally, cut a piece of black construction paper to the same size as the glass/plexy sandwich and cut an opening in the construction paper to the appropriate size for your negative. You now have a negative carrier and it's cheap. It has the advantage of keeping the negative very flat--no popping. Just make sure you keep all surfaces clean.
