    I've got a Philips PCS130.

    1. Yes
    2. Both. See attached diagram from the manual.
    3. Both the head and the lens stage rotate freely, although they both "click" into place in the conventional non-tilted position. Knobs tighten them into position at any angle so the rig doesn't get accidentally knocked out of alignment.


    I've never actually used this feature of my enlarger, so I don't know how well it works in practice.

    I used to have a PCS 130, and I thought the neg stage tilt worked pretty well, but the head tilt was a bit awkward.

    My LPL 7700 has the ability to rotate the entire head, and the lens stage. Both have scales and click-stops.

    Ralph,

    I use a Meopta magnifax 4a color 3 head: http://www.meopta.com/index.php?id=308 which does have various correcting functions, 90% head tilt etc. However, my DeVere 5108 does not a head tilt function, which if present would probably increase the size of the enlarger somewhat.

    Yes, yes, scale on Durst. I think a full-rotary neg carrier with masking blades was available as an accessory, but I don't have it, just a regular one.
    No on Zone VI

    1. Does your enlarger support Scheimpflug correction?

    3. Is it a 'free' tilt or is the angle of tilt supported by a scale?

    Thanks for your replies in advance!
    Ralph,
    correcting perpective with an enlarger is the same principle as correcting in camera, except that the subject is the negative, and the image your easel.

    You correct the perspective by changing the angle of each plane; 1-the negative plane, by tilting the enlarger head; 2-the baseboard plane (if not available on your enlarger, use a piece of wood); 3- the plane of the lens, which would spread sharpness over the whole image.

    All planes must meet at the same point. Hard to describe in words, but if you follow the rules of the schimpflung effect as described for large format cameras, these rules are the same for enlargers.

    Look up the manual for Durst Laborator 138, it has these adjustments
