    Don't have my own 4x5 camera as of yet.
    I know the series of purchases seems odd, but trust me, it was necessary.

    I have a Omega D6, it's a butt kicker if you want it ($150), but I'm way up in Canada Fredericton New Brunswick.

    I picked up my D5500 off of Craigslist (Phoenix). I avoided ebay so I could see the enlarger before purchasing and avoid the outrageous shipping costs that come with 4x5 enlargers. I know it is statistics of low numbers, but I am very happy with my craigslist transaction after being sorely disappointed with many of my ebay transactions on photo gear. Maybe talking to the guy who actually used the enlarger helped compared to the "sell your stuff on ebay" crowd.

    Have you been downtown to Central Camera? Last time I was in there they had several 4x5 enlargers, including with color head, at tempting prices. You could probably talk them down some -- there isn't a very large market for enlargers these days.

    I gave up on Graigs list. I saw an enlarger and made the contact and got a commitment. Was getting ready for the trip when I asked for directions they said it had been sold.

    The second time was two weeks ago. It was in Santa Rosa and the sell had agreed to sell it and I was actually in San Fransciso when I checked the location and was going there when I got an email in the RV park which had a connection and the guy told me he sold it to someone else.

    Either I have run in to some people with other agendas or Craigs list is not worth the effort. So when you see an enlarger for $100.00 with carriers and lens, forget it. Go to that dreaded eBay or ask around instead.
