    An archaic method and nothing but dust problems. I tried it one time with an Omega 4x5 because I had no 4x5 dichroic head.

    You will be MUCH happier with a colour head containing dichroic filters.

    I don't mean to hijack this thread but what about using the color filters found in a dichroic head enlarger on B&W prints....I have a Bessler Color 67 and want to use the filters on B&W prints.

    Thanks!

    Ray, it works fine. Ilford have a table that estimates the contrast grade for each colour filter pack. It might be online, it's certainly inside every box of paper.

    It's the norm to use the dichroic heads for B&W work with multi contrast papers see Ilford's PDF.

    Thanks anyway.

    I will look into getting some sometime in the future. I'll practise my black and white printing first a bit more though since I haven't done any for a while now.

    Need to develop some colour film first though.

    Thank you Steve and Ian!! I have been using standard gel B&W filters with the built in filters dialed to 0. Clearly missing the boat...lol

    sadly, there's no dedicated colour head for Opemus 4.
    but that doesn't mean you can't adapt something for this enlarger.
