    Diffuser with a 4x5 DeVere colour head.

    Formats in descending order of film used are:- 35mm, 4x5" then 120 film.

    99% B&W these days and the rest colour negative

    Beseler 45 and 23 Condenser on both. Colour head on the 23 (you need the conical light integrator to use the condensers with the dichro head)

    I use both.

    First there's an Omega E6 with a Omega florescent circle-light and a Beseler 23c II with a dichro color-head. Condensers on an Omega Pro 66 I use mostly for 2╝ and a Valoy II for 35mm. Those are the two formats I'm shooting most of the time, with some 16mm and 4x5 from time to time.

    I prefer the condenser most often but that's because those are the type enlargers I first learned on and used most often, including for large format work, although I did choose a 23c II with color-head for my first new enlarger almost 30 years ago and it gave very good service, especially with Cibachrome, Ilford Gallery and the Kodak RC papers I used to print pictures of ballet dancers under both stage and natural light. Then I was shooting mostly people, now-a-days it's more likely a still-life or a building.

    Now I am enjoying trying out different enlargers with the several still new to me films and chemicals I'm using now.

    Beseler & Leitz condenser heads.

    Note that the common 'condenser' enlargers as Durst, Beseler, Omega & Co. with their use of large opal bulbs are really semi-diffuse.

    2 diffussor
    Chromega II colorhead on my D3 for 6X9 (rarely) and 4X5" (hopefully a lot )
    Durst Autocolor 707 for 6X6 and 6X7
    1 condensor
    Meopta Axomat 35mm only

    One or two have to go though since my Darkroom has become a bit cramp already and I have to make room for a bigger work/wet table/bench and my CPE2+

    Diffuser on Durst M601/M670 for 120 and very occasional 35mm and De Vere 5108 for 6x17, 5x4 & 10x8.

    Nicholas Lindan is right in saying that many condenser enlargers are semi-diffuser anyway, the Dusrt M601 with condensers gives similar results to the the same enlarger with it's colour head. There might be half a grade difference but the colour head is far less prone to dust or scratches showing on prints.
