    16x20" frames at ViewCamera Store

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a good 16x20" contact printing frame. The View Camera store has one for 160$... Delivery to Italy is about 80-90$. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any frame here in EU. If anyone knows where to find one in Europe please let me know. I tried to manufacture a contat frame by myself but the results weren't so good and I don't really want to waste more money on that.

    Is there anyone who uses a View camera Store contact printing frame? Do you consider it a well made long lasting item?

    thanks

    Hi Fulvio, I think you should visit the Lotus view camera site, they have some contact print frame,and they build very well. Ask to Maya or Guenter.
    Site is http://www.lotusviewcamera.com
    I bought my camera there, and I usually buy a lot of things in thei shop.
    Bye

    ciao Stefano... di dove sei? Io sto a Lucca... Se sei interessato a tecniche di stampa antiche o alternative contattami pure, anche in privato. Non sono molti a interessarsi di queste cose, figuriamoci in Italia...

    saluti

    yes, they are beautiful, but look at the prices!
    the 20x24" costs over 690 euros!

    The Viewcamera Store sells a 16x20" for 160$... about 130 euros...

    I use a View Camera Store printing frame and they are superbly made. The postage is high (I live in the UK) but they are heavy items. Dealing with the guys at the View Camera Store was a pleasure too.
