    I have one of these dichroic heads. I dont need a MF diffusion chamber to enlarge MF negatives do I? Can I use my 4x5 chamber? I just need the appropriate enlarger lens right?

    Thank you in advance.

    The 4x5 mixing chamber is fine for formats smaller than 4x5--you just waste some of the light output. This isn't an issue with the Super Chromega head, since it kicks out a lot of light.

    I second Barry S. I just leave the 4x5 mixing chamber in mine all the time.
