    Kaiser offer the most felxible, and most reliable source of enlargers. The black and white ones are condensers. However the clever thing about the range is its modular nature - you could start with a basic one, and later on change/upgrade pretty much any feature such as colour head, MG head, base board, column, wall mount, etc etc. It's a very impressive range.

    They range from £400 - £1249 - So, similar to lower end Digital SLRs........ie - Good value, especially considering they are virtually hand made.

    People should buy them - otherwise, one day, everyone will be moaning here about how Kaiser stopped making them!

    If I was in Europe, I'd get a Kaiser. Now that Freestyle carries them in the US, I still might get one. I think they look like great designs.

    The V system Kaiser enlargers have a diffused double condensor. Does anyone know how does this differs from a normal condensor?

    I got this reply from one of the distributors:

    Kaiser use a 12V transformer to pass halogen light through both a double condenser and a diffuser. The condenser intensifies the light and the use of the double condenser makes the best possible light distribution. Effectively this makes the Kaiser system more powerful and faster. The diffuser helps to reduce the enlargement of dust marks.
