    Replacement bulb for Super Chromega E Dichro II?

    The burned out bulb is ELC/E, which is a special order item from B&H. But they have the ELC in stock which seems to have the same specs. Does anyone know what the difference is and whether the ELC would work for me?

    Thanks,

    -Michael

    Bob,

    Thanks, I called B&H and while the guy couldn't tell me the difference, he also said it'll work. Guess I'll find out.

    happened to me 2 months ago. as long as its elc 24v 250 watt you should be good. Make sure the reflector surface is the same as well. I got mine from Freestyle. made by eiko

    All specs are same and the reflector looks smooth silver (not beveled) like mine. If the dimensions are slightly different I should hopefully be able to rig something up to make it work.

    Ah, thanks, Bruce:

    "ELC/E directs 50% more of the red and deep red spectrum on the print than a regular ELC."

    I have no idea what affect that will have, but it's ordered, so I guess I'll find out.

    In theory, that should mean nothing for B&W printing, unless the increased red is coming at the expense of decreased blue and/or green. If you do color printing, it could mean you'll need to adjust your filtration values.

    I use the ELC. I had a problem with the enlarger blowing bulbs weekly. A friend checked the voltage going to the bulb and found that it needed reducing by some tiny amount. It hasn't blown a bulb since
