I spent a little bit of time yesterday with my new enlarger. What I noticed was how long the times needed were. Thinking about it afterwards I think the issue might be that the bulb is much higher above the negative then my other enlarger. In 35mm mode the bulb must be almost 12" above the negative. Compare that with something like 3" with my other one. So even with the 150watt bulb it takes longer to make a print then the 75watt bulb in the other enlarger. Does this sound reasonable? I've got a new bulb on order and I really should have picked an easier negative but I'm curious.
