I use a 5x7 Zone VI Type II with a Heiland VC LED head.
Durst L1200 with MG500, L1200 with CLS450 and L1000 with condenser head.
I have an Omega Super Chromega D5 with lens turret for anything bigger than MF 6x6. And for the "smaller stuff" I am using a Dunco II 67 Pro with a Heiland Splitgrade Moduel/Controller. For contacts I have set up a Dunco II 66 VC with standard settings
I think I remember that Burke and James once made a good line of enlargers that they called "SOLAR" so I would not be surprised if someone in this group is still using a "SOLAR" to enlarge their negatives......Regards!
Durst F30 for small format and an Omega D2v for medium format and 4x5.
I have a Super Chromega Dichroic II D5-XL.
Omega 4 x5 condensor and 11 x14 Devere.. love them both , second Omega set up to do larger prints as well.
Special thanks to Brad Pitt to come to my darkroom and pose.
At home: 2 Beseler 4x5. One with the standard condenser head, and the second with the 45s "color" head. Both are controlled through the same RHDesigns timer via a switching hub that I designed and built.
At the facility where I teach: 2 Beseler 4x5 and 8 23Cs. All with condenser heads.
David, how do you handle negative "pop"?
I use a Durst L1200 or a Durst 805;both have the top of the column bracketed to the wall to minimize vibration and both work well by using their color heads for VC printing.
Beseler 45MXT with Aristo cold light head and Schneider Componon-S enlarging lenses.
negative pop is not an issue for me because, I print exclusively with glass carriers.
Most of my enlarging has been done with a 50 F/2.8 CE Rokkor on a Vivitar 356. Decades ago I used a 2in. TTH Ental II, but like an idiot, sold it with my first enlarger, a 35mm Rowi - when I thought I had a space problem.
Years ago before I got the D3 I had a 4X5 Solar, it was well made, just clumsy to use, did not have a crank, the head was heavy, had to loosen the tighting screw and move the head up and down. It did have a tension spring that helped. I had used Omega while in the AF so when I had the money got a used D3.
I also have an RHDesign timer that I would be interested in switching between two enkarger. Is it just a matter of switching the output?
home made, laser aligned, 13x18 max.
I use a Kaiser VPM 7005 multigrade enlarger. This is a diffuser/condenser enlarger with dichroic filters. I only use 35mm and medium format and only print black and white. I can enlarge up to 6x7 medium format or 6x9 if I changed the condenser. I use a variety of Rodenstock and Schnieder lenses of different focal lengths for various formats.
When I enlarge, I use a Beseler 45VXL with an Oriental VC-CLS variable contrast cold-light head.
Bob,your enlarger is just a little bit smaller than my darkroom.I use an Omega c67.
Wow! That DeVere is a dream! I couldn’t care less about Brad Pitt; Angelina Jolie would be much better.
Nah... pretty, yes, but crazier than a bag of hair!
Sure she is crazy, she was married with Brad Pitt!
