One of the last two photo stores selling a small amount of film in the craphole city where I live, has evidently given up on some of its inventory. I noticed a few months ago that in the tiny darkroom section they had brought a few boxes out from the back (never opened). Two of these boxes formed a Saunders LPL C6700 (color dichroic). Each time I went back to the store I noticed they were still there. Since I already have an enlarger that accomodates 35mm and 4x5 (the two formats I shoot), I didn't bother to ask how much they wanted for this thing. But this morning my curiosity finally got the best of me and I asked. What the hell, right? Answer: $200. I said "hmmm, would you take $200 including tax"? Answer: ok. So now I have this thing (still unopened). I don't know what to do with it but how could I not spend $200 on a brand new enlarger that retails at KHB or Adorama for $1200-1300 (plus 15% tax plus who knows how much for shipping). I don't know if I should keep it boxed or if I should use it to replace the beater little Durst enlarger I use for flashing. Seem like a shame to use a nice good quality dichro color enlarger for nothing but flashing. The store has some other boxes I should really check out. I noticed an 18" Rotatrim for example. Again, I already have a Rotatrim, but what if they'll sell me this one for $20? Things like this are truly sad in the sense they show how absolutely dead analog photography is in some parts - although Montreal is a special case, having been continually raped of anything worthwhile since 1976 - but that's a topic for another forum.
