    Ok,

    I have a 45MCRX with condensor, and I have a D2R Aristo cold light. Now, where do I get an adapter to put the two systems together?

    I also have a DII with all the condensors 35mm, MF, and the huge 6 inch 4x5 condensors. Along with numerous neg holders, what am I going to do with this?

    I have a B22XL with both condensor and color dichro heads for it and a Beseler 67S color with both mixing boxes for it. Somethings gotta give. Any and all offers for trades will be considered.

    Beseler 45 Dichro on 45 VXL enlarger for 4x5 and smaller negatives. I like it although I too would consider an LED light source. I keep waiting for Calumet to start shipping theirs. I get tired of dialing in the filtration for split contrast printing. Also don't like the noise of the cooling fan and the light leaks.

    I used to use an Omega D2 with both an aristo coldlight head and matching condensers for mf and 4x5. I like the condensers, atleast for mf. The 4x5 glass condenser for the Omega D2 is fragile and a scratch, pitt or bubble inside the glass (Mine had all three) will show up in the print. The Coldlight solved this, but the prints seemed to have more 'snap'.

    Especially my MF negatives with condenser, pushed tri-x with acufine. I _loved_ the grain and grit. With the coldlight, the prints lacked this 'snap'. It could all be subjection but I saw the difference.

    Ilford VC head, which is basically a dicroic color head, but with only two filters. I used to think I liked the condenser better, but I think I was just being fooled by higher contrast. I have stayed away from cold light becuase of the rumors of variability of the light output. Probably not a problem, but the hot lights work fine for me.

    Tim: I don't know. Truthfully, I used DUCT TAPE to secure the Aristo to the stage. Can't remember what I did for a permanent solution. Maybe a machine shop could help.

    Honey, I promise no more searching eBay for cameras.

    Tim, I don't see a D2R in the Artisto site. Here is info on an adapter collar for the Beseler 4X5 P/N BES-CL.

    I've had both, and didn't care for the cold light. You really need a stabilizer, which cuts back on the light output.
    I use a Beseler 4X5 MCRX purchased new in 1972 and still in alignment (I've moved it 4 times. I've always followed the directions in the booklet.) Condensers are no problem if you make your negs thin enough. Dean

    I use a Fuji/LPL enlarger with a condenser head. It's an Omega D series enlarger substitute, basically. And I switch the lens: Nikkor 63mm and Fujinon 50mm, 90mm depending on the quality of the 35mm neg when I print.
