CUSTOM GLASSLESS STRETCHING TYPE NEGATIVE CARRIERS FOR DURST

Negative carriers can make or break an enlarger. Few negative carriers are well designed. Cheap glassless negative carriers like Omega and Beseler allow the film to buckle under heat, crop too much of the image and reflect light off the inside edges of the carrier opening making even more of the perimeter of the image unuseable. Expensive glassless negative carriers like some Durst carriers have beveled interior edges, but still crop into the image and allow buckling. Glass carriers prevent the film from buckling, but still oftentimes cut off some of the image. Of course, with glass carriers you have 4 extra surfaces to keep clean and may encounter Newtonrings. I have developed a glassless stretching type negative carrier that holds the film taught without glass and yet still allows printing of the full image--even the full negative. I have built 2 such carriers for use with an 8X10 Durst. I can build carriers for other enlargers and other formats. I may be able to build an insert to fit inside your carrier. I should be able to build a carrier to fit most sheet film enlargers. The design will not work with rollfilm. The cost will vary with the effort required. The 8X10 Durst carriers are priced at $500 and $2000. Here are the listings for the 8X10 Durst carriers:
