    Hello,
    I have long been bitten with the bug of "analog" photography and finally decided to make the first step and buy the required darkroom equipment. I have found a used but in otherwise excellent condition Kaiser VP350 35mm enlarger, which according to the manufacturer's manual is upgradable to 6x6 by changing the condenser (article no. 4477) and film carrier. I have searched the web for this particular condenser and could not find much. Is the condenser for this model compatible with other condensers, does anybody know of a source where it can be bought? Thank you.

    Kaisers are still being manufactured and people like Silverprint and RK sell them and all the parts.

    Thank you very much for the hints, found them in
    RK for £77. Still need to determine whether it is compatible with the pre 1994 vp350, which is slightly different.
