    Hi everyone.
    Does anyone know of a camera club in Canberra where I would be able to use an enlarger, preferably a 4x5 one. I'm moving there on Monday week and I'm going to need some where I can process my 8x10 s and print fom my 4x5 negs. A lot of places only cater for digital these days, so if anyone knows of a club that still has film processing facilities, let me know.
    thanks
    Mike

    Photo access is a club with an extensive darkroom. I never used it but worked with a guy who ran the darkroom. They have 2 4x5 Beseler enlargers.

    No problem Mike.
    Do you want a free electric print dryer? I'm moving on Wednesday and can't take it with me.
    It's a Japo type and I'd say you could dry 20x16 prints.

    I'd love to have it, but the missus won't let me. We had to downsize drastically so that we can fit the necessities in the new smaller digs, and I'm just not going to have room. Not even for a tiny darkroom. But thanks for the offer, I just wish I could have taken you up on it.Mike

    Mike, thanks for that.
    Someone else is able to take it anyway so it works out for everyone!
