    Is there a Contact Printing Flashlight for burning?

    Anyone make a contact printing flashlight type device with filters and cutouts for different types of burning?

    If so, and if you've used them, how well do they work?
    Thanks

    Try a minimag, it can have filters mounted in the front crystal, some actually come with a red one for astronomy purposes. A paper snoot aids in using it for burning in.

    Interesting idea. You might consider making your own from LEDs. You can purchase high output white, blue, green, red, yellow, orange, and UV LEDs at good prices from superbrightleds.com. If you use the blue and green, you could burn in VC papers for either higher or lower contrast in the burned in areas. You'd probably need to diffuse them a bit for a more even beam. You could also customize the output level to give you enough time for good control.

    I have a blue + green LED print flasher design on my to do list, but hadn't considered that for contact printing before I saw your post.

    I use a penlight with a layer or two of masking tape over the lens for soft-edge burning and flashing.

    I'll second that. Got mine when they first came out. Sounds spendy but after talking to the developer for an hour it's justified.
