    Can your enlarger do that?

    I was wondering if you guys can help me to understand existing enlarger capabilities.

    1. Does your enlarger support Scheimpflug correction?
    2. Is it done by tilting the head, lens plane or both?
    3. Is it a 'free' tilt or is the angle of tilt supported by a scale?

    Thanks for your replies in advance!
    Regards

    I have Meopta Axomat 5a. It has head tilt. It is only for 35mm. No scale for angle.

    I have a tilting neg stage attachment (the "Distortion Correction Attachment") for my Omega D-II. It can tilt the neg along one axis and rotate the neg 360 degrees, so that I can orient the neg along the tilt axis. I can also rotate my easel by moving it around and can tilt it using special shims that cost 25-cents per unit of tilt.

    Are the shims also called 'quarters' by any chance?

    Here's a photo of the Omega gizmo with a 4-blade Omega masking attachment on top of it.--

    You'll notice my high-tech sliding custom light trap around the collar that normally holds the condenser lenses, but in this case is holding an Aristo Hi-D cold light source. If you're familiar with the D-II, you may also observe that I've used advanced cold forging technology to customize the lever that raises the head to accommodate the added width of the negative mask, which was really made for the D-5 and later enlargers.

    My Beseler 4x5 has head and neg stage tilt, no scales. I wish it had a click stop at the zero position, it's a pain putting it back.
