    First time enlarging

    I just tried enlarging for the first time with great success - but i did encounter a few problems..

    I have a durst F60 with both the Fesixcon 75 and 50 condensers, using the Fesixcon 50, 35mm negatives enlarged fine, but when i switched to the 75 and tried some 6x6 negatives i got seriously under exposed edges around the whole frame - this seems a bit odd for an enlarger that was specifically made for 6x6 enlarging. Do i need a different lens as well? or is it something else.

    Can i change the lens on an F60? and if so what do people recommend for 6x6 enlarging?

    Thanks

    Jim

    Serious now,

    You need a 75/80mm lens (or 60mm wide angle) to enlarge 6x6cm negatives.

    For 35mm film a 50mm lens is used for enlarging. Medium format film requires an 80mm lens.

    ...and don't forget to match up the condenser set and lens as well.
