Who here has built the best exposing unit with the least amount of money and materials? I'm about to build a light box and I just want to get ideas about how much I should spend or if I should make an exposure unit all together. Who's expsoing unit rules and why?
just remember that having a crappy exposure unit will make crappy screens, plain and simple. I made a great unit for maybe $500 CDN. cheaper than the $3,300 for the Photosharp I could have ordered, but probably not as good. In my experience it's more trouble to try and micky mouse it all together for under $300, the end result is headaches from shitty film, crappy exposure and thus terrible prints. If you are just printing for yourself then go for it, but if you are doing work for others then crappy equipment means angry customers, and then more headaches
