    A colleague of mine has a couple of Wray lenses in lensboards I've not seen before. Can anyone help as to what these lensboards fit, and perhaps a clue as to what the lenses might have been used for?

    The 4" Supar lens looks like an enlarger lens, and has an iris, but the 184mm Lustrar doesn't, so I guess it's a process lens?
    Both have bigger threads than the usual M39 on enlargers.


    Any help would be appreciated :smile:

    They could be off a print head from a commercial lab, so not a conventional enlarger. Think Kenprint or similar, despite the "Ken" they were actually made by Ilford :smile:

    Come to think of it here's the prints off those "Digital" negative you made with that Nikon tank on the last Ilford factory tour :D

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Ian; You insult me sir! It was a film body made by Canon :wink: You'll start a war with comments like d*****l Nikon :tongue:
    I reckon I'll get a 20x24 ULF for next time. There wouldn't be any debate about what I was shooting with that!
