    Hi all,

    Does anyone have a Durst Laborator 1200 manual in PDF form?

    Also, what kind of bulb does it require? I'd like to pick up a replacement one for it next week sometime.

    If anyone who knows this particular enlarger and has any other bits of advice would be welcome. I'm just about to start using one for a sizeable project and I've never used one before.

    Thanks.

    Andrew

    For what it is worth:

    This page lists an English brochure for the L1200:

    And this page has a full manual for the L1200 Autocolor version, but in French...:

    And lastly, this page lists a whole bunch of Durst enlarger parst with some descriptions:

    Thanks Marco, that's a big help.

    And I don't know if anyone died. I think it was a college that donated it to the darkroom where I volunteer. I'm looking forward to using it, it looks like a good enlarger. I just have to wait until next week when I pick up a set of filters for it.

    This is the wrong section, the in memoriam section. This fits better in the enlarger section.

    I have a Durst L1200 manual in English, however, it's a bit big for email (7.6 MB), but I can try.

    I have a web server you could ftp it to, and then I'd turn around and make it available here for download... PM me for login details if you want. (But I also want it for use with my L1200, so I would like to get it from you somehow no matter what!)

    Hi, I've just joined and recently aquired a L1200. I could really use a manual to help me understand the set up. If you could email a pdf that would be great. n.macb111@live.co.uk. Cheers

    I'm very sorry, but I have since been told that it is a violation of copyright law to send this out.
