Paterson PTP643 overview

  • 1Description

The Paterson Micro Focus Finder is invaluable for making sharp enlargements by giving a highly magnified image which snaps easily into focus.

The Micro Focus Finders grain image is so bright, that it permits focusing at the working aperture to avoid focus shift when stopping down.

It also features an adjustable eyepiece that can be calibrated for individual differences in eyesight.

The Micro focus Finder includes a sliding shutter to protect the mirror and a cap to keep it's eyepiece clean when not in use.

    Paterson PTP643 reviews

    Micro Focus Finder is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad deal for the price. I used this Paterson focus finder prior to upgrading to the grain magnifier I use now.I have no real complaints, other than the eyepiece had a tendency to slip out of the shaft. Which is not a huge deal (just put it back in, right;). It does offer a clear vision of the grain when focused right and works as described.It is worth the price$ for an inexpensive grain finder.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for price, but leaves one wanting for an upgrade It looks cheap, it feels cheap, and it is cheap, but it'll get the job done well enough. However, as grain is quite small even when enlarging 35mm FP4+ developed in Rodinal, enlarging to 8x10 (with some parts of the frame cropped) I don't anticipate that this would magnify enough to focus medium or large format. Regardless, for the vast majority of 35mm applications, it'll do exactly what one needs it to do.� I don't regret buying this; but, if I could do it over again, I'd go with a 25x magnification model that costs a bit more. If you're already so invested in the enlarging process that you want a grain focus finder, instead of just eyeing it, you surely know by now that cheap equipment is worth exactly what you pay for it. Pros: - Dust cover for mirror - Good enough for the price Cons: - Probably not adequate for medium or large format - PLASTIC - Visible image is a tad smaller than I'd have liked
