cameras and darkroom kit

Whilst most appropriate to callers to the laboratory we stock a good range of ancillary items for traditional photography. No darkroom is complete without at least one item from Paterson and their developing trays are synonymous with darkroom magic and below is a selection of available products

We also stock a range of ancillary darkroom and film handling products from white cottton gloves, sleeving pages and fine line marker pens. Available in store or on request: please call.

Micro Focus Finder

A budget, mains operated, digital enlarger timer that can be set from 0.1 to 9.9 seconds in 0.1 second increments or from 10 to 99 seconds in one second increments. The brightness of the LED display can be adjusted to individual requirements.

35mm to 6x6cm negatives
Constructed mostly from metal these enlargers will provide a lifetime of service. The condenser coupled with the high quality lens supplied ensures enlargements of the highest quality. A filter drawer allows the use of gelatin multi-contrast filters.

Negatives are easily positioned in slots on the mask of the Paterson Proof Printers and the resulting contact sheet enables easy choice of which negatives to enlarge. An entire 36 exposure 35mm or 120 film can be proofed on a single 8 x 10in (20.3 x 25.4cm) sheet of paper.

The Micro Focus Finder provides a highly magnified image which snaps into and out of sharp focus and is bright, even at large magnifications. It is 6in (15cm) high and adjustable for individual eyesight. A shutter protects the mirror when not in use and a lens cap protects the high quality lens.
