    Menace,

    Congratulations on your 5x7! Now you can seriously lament the passing a AZO as you've now breached the ramparts of the contact printer's fortress (at least until you add a 5x7 enlarger!) Heck of a lot of fun! Good training for that 12x20 you'll be looking for before too long!

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the condolences and support. I feel better now And now that you mention it, contact printing DOES sound like fun...

    Ah Ha! Premeditation. Guilty in the eyes of the law...

    At least I'll admit I was looking for a 5x7. I found one and his name is Grover.

    Yes. Yes I will.
    The really beat up frame got dismantled and is on the shop table waiting to be repaired. The other one just needed a little de-stinkyfication and a new coat of wipe on finish. Both need felt (thanks for sending that as well).

    Send me the link to your brass supplier again will you?

    Come on, ya'll know that 5x7 is just "a transitional format".

    Be sure you let us know when you get your first 8x10!

    Hi there,

    "Come on, ya'll know that 5x7 is just "a transitional format"."

    Actually, it's the PERFECT format, twice the size of 4x5 and half the weight of 8x10. Nice portrait ratio too. Now if you can find a 300mm Heliar and do it right, the wife will LOVE it.

    Congrats on the 5X7

    Just wait until you get the enlarger! Contact prints are very cool, but contact frames can't be used as replica antique hairdriers, bells or searchlights.

    That Zion trip was good times. Chasing the sunset and climbing on top of a big rock overlooking the valley....Yup, good times.
