    ENLARGER LIST(new, old, continued, discontinued, all brands, all models))

    Hi, all. Japan's Ministry of Energy, Technology, and Industry has virtually requested the public that it seeks information on photographic equipment in the following categories:

    Enlargers

    Print Developers

    Slide Projectors

    This is due to Japanese government's agenda to limit and ban the sales and resales of old electronics by enforcing a new product-safety law, which I lately had run a thread about.

    http://www.apug.org/forums/showthrea...ighlight=japan

    But they still consider "vintage" equipment to be excluded from the list, even though I've found out they did not consulted with any experts and professionals to select the items for the list.

    Their making a vintage equipment list sounds stupid, but more importantly the fact that they have neglected the job again makes me really angry and worried at the same time. My concern is, as I have already expressed, having a fear of Japan's traditional photographic community and market starting to slim rapidly.

    So, giving the government officials a good list of the items suggested by photographers from all around the world is ideal, and what they want choose not choose is up to them. Anything that's rare to find, hard to fix, and/or considered valuable is what they are asking in the first place, but new items can be included also according to their own definition of the word "vintage."

    Since last night I've been doing online research of the enlargers first that have been made and used world-wide. But I have not been able find one good site with all enlargers from all brands listed in a chronological order.

    That's partly because the sellers have a list of the items currently available, but not the ones discontinued. Repair shops have certain older models but not all of the ones once available in the market. So, it's hard to organize them all by myself, and this is going to be a big list.

    So, I''d like to ask each one of you a big favor. Will you post the names of enlargers with details on this thread? Write brand names, the names/model#s of the enlargers, and the years they are made.

    Please post the links for the resources if available. If you have and/or know the books that I can refer to, please write them down, too. That will be helpful.

    It's still skimpy as you can laugh.

    So, please add more information, make correction and suggestions, etc. Anything you could contribute to this thread would be so helpful.


    Thank you very much in advance.

    No laughter, just a quick note that Omega enlargers (I think!) are also badged as LPL in some countries.

    Elwood 5x7 and 8x10 models (don't know any model name designations, but they're definitely historic/antique)

    might want to include the Beseler 23CII, 23CXL (there are a LOT of these around)

    Also, wasn't there B2?

    And at least here in the states, there are the Saunders LPL 4500(XL), 670(XL),etc.

    Oh Yeah, would not want to forget the DeVere

    DeJur-Amsco Versatile Professional enlarger from the 1940s to maybe 1950s, in 4x5 and 2x3 sizes. The electrical wiring on my 4x5 seems to be original, and is still working fine after 50 years. That might not be good enough for Japanese bureaucrats, though.

    Solar Enlargers

    Burke and James made enlargers under the Solar brand name. I have a 5x7 with a glass carrier that is wonderful.I had a Zone VI cold light head adapted to it. Aristo still lists cold lights for these models. Check their website for more enlarger models ...
    Best, Peter

    Philips made the PCS1000, PCS130 (which takes the optional PCS150 color controller), and PCS2000. The PCS130/150 and PCS2000 were also sold under the Paterson name (the PCS130 was sold as the Paterson PCS2500; the PCS2000 name was used under both brand names). There's a Yahoo group devoted to these units: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tri-one/. The PCS1000 was a B&W model with a fluorescent light source. The PCS130 was a condenser model and the PCS150 added an additive (red/green/blue) light source to make it a color model. The PCS2000 was a diffusion model with an additive light source similar to the one provided by the PCS150. These were made in the 1980s, but I don't know exact manufacture dates. I'm not sure about the PCS1000, but the PCS130 can handle up to 6x7 format (given appropriate condensers), while the PCS2000 can handle up to 6x6 (given the right mixing box).

    A Durst I don't see mentioned is the C35, which is a low-end diffusion model with built-in yellow and magenta filters. It's usually equipped only for 35mm negatives, but a kit to enable medium format (6x6, I believe) support was available, but is hard to find today. This was another 1980s model, but I don't know the exact manufacture dates.
