The Paterson Universal enlarger will handle negatives up to 6×6 cm. The all
metal enlarger head can be moved up and down the angled column enabling
prints up to 30 x40cm to be produced. For larger prints the head can be rotated
through 90 degrees to allow projection of the image onto a wall. Alternatively the
column can be rotated allowing the image to be projected onto the floor.
The negative carrier comes complete with both 6x6cm and 35mm glassless masks.
The enlarger lens mount is a standard 39mm thread which will accommodate a wide
range of lenses and it can be supplied with either a 50mm lens for use with 35mm
negatives or a 75mm lens for use with 6×6 negatives.
A filter drawer in the lamp-house allows filters used for work with Variable Contrast
papers to be inserted.
A red swing filter is provided under the lens to allow paper positioning without
the paper being exposed to the projected image. This is swung out of position before
exposure is made.
