Subject: RE: [Leica] A few V35 questions ...

The Hove book was mentioned, sadly I wouldn't reccomend that. It misses out
the most important factor that I was looking for in that book, how to set up
the autofocus on the V35. This is available (FOC I believe) in the
instruction booklet. If you have problems then post again, we can photocopy
that for you or provide on line experience.
Use any masking frame you wish, but it is the hieght of the frame's printing
surface (above the enlarger's base) that is the critical factor in getting
the autofocus to work. If that is, say, 25mm, then you need to set the
column hieght at 25mm on the scale marked at its base.
