Aristo Cold Light Head D-2
Can anyone tell if this is a V54 model light head, if this needs compensation filters (along with contrast filters) for b&w printing? I can't identify the model of this unit. It's old, but I don't know how old, maybe 15 years... I have the original box, but it has no info. on it or in it, and the head itself has only a sticker that says Aristo, and D-2 on it (with Aristo address etc.). Any help much appreciated. Thank you, s.
Aristo Cold Light Head Info.
Hello, and thank you to everyone for all this information. When I plugged the head in, the light seemed to be a sharp/acid-y green. I don't have a darkroom at the moment to run a test print, but wanted to get everything in place (whatever filters I might need) and all, so that I can use light head. Louise mentioned counting the coils of the bulb -- there are 9 by my count --which she said indicates a high intensity bulb. There is no low/high switch. I'm getting closer but still am not sure what I've got here, sounds like a V54...
