Hello everyone. I've searched a bunch of forums and whatnot and haven't found too much information - hopefully someone here can at least point me in the right direction. I'm looking to put together a darkroom in my house and have been searching for equipment for a while. I noticed the other day that one of my local photo shops has this darkroom setup available: Beseler Dichro 23dga, rodenstock rodagon 50 2.8 lens, 35mm neg carrier, power supply, timer, some trays, squeegee and easel for $300. I have tried searching for information about the specific model (23dga) but can't seem to find anything. I find all sorts of info about in the 23c. :/ Anyone have any info or references they can point me towards? I have zero problem doing the research for things, but for some reason, this particular item is eluding me. Lastly, can I get your thoughts on that setup? Does that $300 price sound reasonable for that list of items? All the functions work, the bellows moves (although sounds a little like either really new material or older material when it's fully collapsed or expanded); the head moves and stays put along the rails, theres a sliding tray between the lamp and neg that looks a little filthy, not exactly sure what it's there for (assuming filters, but there are color adjustment knobs i can use for that, i think?). A trusted source who works for the store wrote me privately to tell me about it, so I'm confident that it works as it should. I'd still need to find an 80mm lens and 6x6 neg carrier since I plan to shoot more with my hasse than my 35mm film body. So that is really hindering the price factor (adding at least another $100 to the price). Would a 6x6 negcar for a 23C fit in this one? I'm assuming it would, they appear to the same physical machine just with different components. I only plan on printing b/w for now, if that makes a difference. I've read a few small bits about dichro vs condenser having different results for b/w; anyone else heard/have experience with that? *edited to add* Just found out the guy can throw in a 75mm lens (dunno what brand yet though) and 6x7 carrier... which isn't a 6x6, but it can at least hold the neg, and maybe using some gaffers tape over the open areas will solve the issue until I find a proper carrier. ??? Thanks in advance!
