Replacement Durst M601/M605 Negative Carrier Adapter


SKU: N/A Category:


A negative carrier adapter for Durst M601 and M605 enlargers. It may work on other Durst M models but has only been tested on the 601 and 605 thus far. It is intended to be used with the Sivoneg that accepts both glass as well as adapters. Note this is the adapter ONLY. Photos of the Sivoneg itself are for illustrative purposes to show how these adapters fit inside the carrier.

Note that some adapters include posts to hold the film and some do not. Specifically the adapters for 120 film do not include the posts as there is not enough room on the adapter to include them (and the main carrier itself should have posts that can be used).

Some customers have asked if these are usable for DSLR scanning. Unfortunately I do not recommend them for this purpose (they are much too lightweight). Instead I recommend my DSLR Scanning Tables or my Omega D2 carriers for this purpose.

Specify the size and border variant of the specific one you are looking for. If the size you want is not available or you would like something custom, just let me know!

Border / Frame-Size Options

Standard – the opening is the standard size, either from the OEM or based on the measurements of the exposed area, to fully mask the negative
Bordered – the opening is a little larger than standard to expose part of the rebate of the negative. This is mostly for printing a black border around your image. Note this can impact flaring.
Full-Frame/Full Rebate – the opening goes all the way to the film edge exposing the entire rebate (including frame numbers and, for 35mm, sprockets). Due to potential flatness and flaring issues, this is best used when you want to specifically print the entire rebate.

These were designed by me and are printed on demand using Atomic PLA on my modified Prusa MK3s 3D printers. They should bring you years of reliable use when using them for normal printing sessions as long as they are stored reasonably. Store them with your lenses (e.g. not in an attic on a hot summer South Texas day shoved in an unnamed box to be forgotten about for 20 years). Clean with a damp cloth optionally with alcohol (do not use acetone).
