    NEW COLDLIGHT HEAD

    Here's some pre-Photokina news from Heiland (makers of the high-precision densitomers and the Split-Grade printing system) that they will be coming out with a new LED cold-light source —available in various formats for nearly every make of enlarger. It'll use 3 color LED´s (red, green and blue). The light source will emit cold light for enlarging negative formats up to 8 x 10 inch on Multigrade papers.

    Heiland will be sharing a stand with the B&W chemical company, Moersch (fantastic paper developers for lith effects in various colors), and enlarger manufacturer, Kienzle.

    It's not widely known that Wolfgang Moersch —thought by some to be the inspiration for Xtol— is considered to be one of the best printers in Germany. He has been chosen to make prints from Karl Blossfeldt's original glass plate negatives.

    Kienzle is a company that should be better known, too. They make what are arguably some of the finest enlargers on earth. A bit "funky '70's" in design, but truly Rolls-Royce / hand-made quality.

    Anyway, that's all the news that fit to print. You (perhaps!) saw it here first! More news when I return from Photokina ... but I'm already happy that there are still some manufacturers braving the digital tide. Hope some of us can find it in our hearts and pocketbooks to support them!

    Cheers,

    Christopher

    If you're interested for some cold light prices from the split grade:

    SPL-CL2: (till 6X9cm medium format enlargers) Controller, probe, feedswitch and cable with the CL and adapter: Eur. 1643,00

    SPL-CL3: (4X5" enlargers): Eur. 1963,00

    That's our Dutch price for the time being.


    Best regards,

    Robert

    Murray,

    I didn't have a chance to speak very long with Jürgen Heiland at Photokina 2006, nor grab a brochure on his new cold-light head. I did see it briefly (looks good).

    Here's a direct email address: heielec@t-online.de

    Ask him yourself and tell him I sent you!

    Best,

    Christopher
