Grafmatic Holder : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Hi I just bought two Grafmatic holders and if I understand the concept, I don't know how to access the septums. How do I open the holder ? Thanks. Guillaume

First, depress the silver tab towards the pull handle to remove the sepum box from the genreal assembly. Second, hold the box that you just slid out of the general assembly and push the darkslide handle towards the box like you were trying to push the slide further in. Youshould hear a small click. This is the latch that releases the darkslide. Third, continue to hold the sepum box and pull out the darkslide. The septums should pop up to about a 30 degree angle. Pull out the whole set of septums straight out along their length. DON'T BEND THE SEPTUMS!

If the 'frame counter' wheel on the back of the grafmatic shows 'X' I think you have to move it on to '1' before it will come apart as above. Otherwise it is locked solid.
