    Looking for Enlarger in Melbourne

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone knows where I could find a good quality second hand enlarger for B&W on medium format (6x6). I'm only starting out printing, but I've been using a Rolleicord which I love using, and want to learn to print now. I live in Melbourne, and I'm also not really sure what sort of enlarging lens to look out for, although I've heard 80mm is the right size for 6x6. I've had my eye on eBay, but there's nothing really there except for a LPL enlarger which may be a bit out of my price range. I'm only starting out with printing, as I usually develop and scan.

    Cheers,
    Tim.

    I'd love to sell you an enlarger, but the shipping is murderous. I have an Omega c-700 which would fill the bill you are looking for, even still, shipping would be over $100(ouch). An 80mm or 90m would certainly be the lens to use for enlarging 6x6cm negs. Maybe look for a Durst M600(series), they are very good, well built, machines. Vivitar also sold several decent enlargers under their brand that would work for you. I'm sure there are several brands common to your part of the world, hopefully someone there can help you out.

    Vanbar in Sydney had an eye-popping lineup of enlargers of various formats ex State Library of NSW a year or so ago awaiting despatch to Vanbar Melbourne. They may be worth a call.

    Another fruitful avenue might be to go to a good newsagent and in the photographic section look for a yellow-covered magazine called Photographic Trader. They have loads of stuff, including complete darkrooms for sale at times.

    I made a search, and there are a few enlargers on auction at ebay.com.au, just to let you know.

    There was a FREE medium format b&w enlarger at Box Hill market today.

    I've got a 4x5" B&W one I'm not using (lensless) since I got the big colour one.

    Yeah the shipping is a killer unfortunately. Thanks for the thoughts.

    Damn! Oh well, thanks anyway!

    Thanks for the info, but luckily I found an enlarger at the Box Hill Camera Market.

    Saw that one I got a colour one I saw, an Saunders/LPL D6700 so it's all good now, but thanks for looking out for me! I didn't think I'd be able to get down there today.

    Vanbar in Sydney had an eye-popping lineup of enlargers of various formats ex State Library of NSW a year or so ago awaiting despatch to Vanbar Melbourne. They may be worth a call.

    I checked the Vanbar site in the second-hand section and they were all really expensive. Thanks anyway.

    Yeah, read that quite a bit but didn't have a copy handy.

    Had a look on there, was watching one but got one now so it's all good.
