    smallest enlarger that can do medium format

    Hi,

    I have enlarger for 35mm already (meopta axomat 5), but from time to time I want to enlarge some medium format. I am looking for some small enlarger that will not occupy much space, some 'laptop' version . Back home I had magnifax 4 - it is beauty, but it is big also.

    regards,

    Depends which format. Lots of fairly small enlargers can do 6x6. But if you want 6x7 or 6x9 you are looking at soemthing bigger. The Beseler Printmaker and Omega C760 are probably the smallest 6x7 enlargers.

    When you think about it, all enlargers with similar capabilities are going to be about the same size. Some will be more bulky than others, but in terms of "footprint" there can't be all that much difference. The height needed to achieve a given size print will be the same, and is determined by the focal length of the enlarging lens. There are a few special cases where wide angle enlarging lenses are used to allow a shorter column height, but these are not common.

    You have experience of Meopta already, so the Opemus range would fit the bill nicely. I use one together with a (much bigger than Magnifax) De Vere. The Opemus is hardly larger than the Axomat and seems quite a bit less bulky than the Magnifax.

    I have an Omega B-22, and it works very well for me. 6x6 cm capacity and smaller. There seem to be quite a few around [at least in Canada and USA], and if you keep searching, you may find one for free. It's simple, and I think parts are available. Here's a link for informational purposes, not for suggested purchase:

    Bulbs are still available, too.

    The beseler 67's are pretty small, but maybe still too big for what your looking for.
