Default Meopta Opemus 6

Hi all,

I have been given an Meopta Opemus 6 and I was wondering if anyone knew if there is a possibility to print 6x7 with it? as I mainly shoot that size but have realised the inserts only come in 6x4.5 and 6x6.

Thanks,

Eve

If you don't mind cropping a centimetre from your negs. Otherwise keep your eyes open for an Opemus 7.

Eve, these are nicely made enlargers, but I'm afraid you'll need a larger model to do 6x7. I use an LPL C6700 enlarger which just covers 6x7 for colour and monochrome printing.

You would need to lose 1 cm or so of your negative,They were built for 35mm,645 and 66, there is a 67 for the bigger size
