    I have an Elwood 5x7 as my one and only enlarger. I primarily do 4x5 sheetfilm, and it's worked great. Does anyone know if they ever made a negative carrier for roll film for it? When I got my enlarger it had a good bulb in it, and came with an extra (which I'm currently using now), so I'm kind of interested in alternative bulbs, as this one isn't going to last forever! Thanks for the links, and manual, they will come in handy.

    I like the Elwood, but then it's been about 30 years since I used any other enlarger, so I don't have much to compare it to! Would I be better off getting a smaller enlarger to do roll film with? I'd rather not if I can avoid it, as I don't have lots of room in my darkroom for another enlarger!

    I have never seen the Elwood 8 x 10 does anyone have experience with that one.....I have heard they are not as monstrous as some enlargers....or would one be better off fitting a 4 x 5 bessler to 8 x 10 ?

    Check the manual John posted. It covers the negative carriers. If you have the glass carrier you can just mask it off. No?

    Dave I was looking at an 8x10 last year. It may be smaller then some 8x10s but it didn't seem that small to me.

    Hi Nick,

    Sorry, I missed this question completely. I use my 5x7 Elwood for my 4x5 negatives. I didn't have an OEM carrier, so I made one out of wood, used two pieces of glass to sandwich the negatives and created a place for the negative to sit by masking it off with black electrical tape on the lower glass.

    I hope this helps.

    cheers eh?

    I've always used my Elwood for 4x5 sheet film (well, did a couple of 5x7 sheets too), but I've just gotten a 120 back, as well as a couple of 70mm backs for my camera, so will be doing those formats as well. With my current negative holder this is going to be a real pain in the behind, as it would require each shot cut separately from the roll! Does anyone have any roll film negative carriers for the 5x7 Elwood they want to get rid of? If not, does anyone have a roll film carrier for the Elwood I could borrow? If I could see one in person, I can probably duplicate it without too much trouble. Thanks in advance!

    -Mike

    Mike I'm still opening boxes but I think I found the masks. All they seem to be is home made cut outs to use with the glass 5x7 holder.

    An old thread I know but does anyone have a handy picture of an Elwood enlarger? 5x7 preferable but 8x10 would be OK.

    Thank you,
    Curt

    Don't know if it helps, Curt, but here is an old manual for the Elwood: http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/...od/elwood.html

    Elwood Enlarger Manual

    I have a very comprehensive Elwood Enalrger manual from May 15, 1940,
    covering their whole line of enlargers and accessories, as well as a price list.
    It is 64 pages of well illustrated information information. This is not quite the right place to do this (selling stuff on a Forum), but I will sell this for $12.00, post paid

    in the lower 48, and a coupla bucks for APUG.

    I wish I could generously offer to post it, but I am so analogue that I don't
    know how, a borderline computer illiterate.
