    I have a Durst AC1201 together with the Colour analyser, and other associated control units. The Enlarger itself was damaged (but not beyond repair) the my recent flood I have talked about elsewhere.

    What I am wondering is if anyone is familiar with the colour analyser part of this setup?

    I have the AC1200 which looks exactly the same as this: (http://host.jwcinc.net/4439674/durst/durst0024.JPG). Can't say I am terribly familiar with the analyser part as I only use it for B&W which basically means I only use the built-in timer (which is useful as it uses a set of filters as a shutter, avoiding lamp warm-up times), but I do have the user manual for it (poor photocopy, but readable).

    Cheers, Bob.

    That's really helpful Bob - that is exactly the same unit as I have!

    Can I ask where you acquired the copy manual?

    Thanks,

    Matt

    IIRC, I got mine from OldTimer Cameras, but I can make a copy for you - I've been meaning to convert it to PDF (though I suspect it will get rather large scanned at 150 dpi). I'll try it and see what I end up with...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Thanks Bob - I will try oldtimer anyway on the meantime - I've bought stuff off them before.
