I have no scanner here. But I've exposed some paper through the carrier without negative and it seems to be this pattern. Strange because although the enlarger might be not perfectly aligned, the grain seems sharp enough as well, and I've double checked, the negative was in the right way around, emulsion against the normal glass side. The lens is a Schneider Componon-S, I don't think it has unusual field curvature. So perhaps the paper was bulging up in the middle, leading to differential focus toward the corners. What do I do, short of buying a vacuum easel? Switch papers I guess.. And/or back to glassless carrier and try to flatten the negatives somehow.
