    Blue Moon Camera in Portland, Ore. has plenty of nice old-school contact frames, if you're still jonesing for one.
  5. Re: Contact Printing Large Format negatives with a Leica Focomat V35?

    Again, new to darkroom stuff. Wouldn't a wide open lens give me less exposure times, so less time for dodging/burning, etc?

    It has the color module. What would you be asking for one of your 40mm/2.8?

    Thanks!

    Wonderful! Do any of you have experience with a V35? Want to make sure I'm not buying a dud.

    Steve,

    Thanks for the suggestion. Can you expound on this, as I'm new to the darkroom. What do you mean on baseboard areas?
