Re: I have FAF's optical printer

I have the optical printer that used to belong to Film Arts. For the record, I also have the KEM 6-plate flatbed (I bought this about four years ago).

I used the optical printer (and the KEM 6-plate) when it was at FAF, and couldn't stand the thought of no longer having that option.

If you think that you might be interested in using the optical printer, here in San Francisco, at some point in the future, please contact me off list: <email suppressed>.
