    Was wondering if anyone had exp/thoughts on the additional mixing chambers for Beseler 45S dichro head? Just got one and was wondering if the 35mm and 6x7 mixing heads were needed or just nice to have. Any ideas? Thanks

    Nobody else answered so I'll try. How long are your print times? My understanding all you'll gain is faster times. If you're happy with current times then they aren't needed.

    I orginally had all three but I returned the 6x7 as unnecessary. The 35mm allows much shorter times with 35mm but there is little advantage to the 6x7. The 43x5 will cover the other formats but with longer times required.
