    Durst Laborator 54???

    Hi All,

    Just bought a Durst 54 enlarger with 135mm f5.6 Schneider - Kreuznach Componon lens for £10. I know nothing about this enlarger and just assumed it was fine for 5x4 negs.....problem is there no neg holder.

    Anyone know anything about these enlargers? Anyone have a neg carrier going spare or where I can get one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Tony

    if its one of the laborator enlargers such as 1000 or L1200 then you need a "femoneg".
    google it. Then you need the format inserts of the film size you want to print from which fit into the femoneg film carrier. Or you can use glass inserts.

    northern photo or nova darkroom may have some of these format inserts. You'll probably have to get a femoneg off the auction site but try northern photo first.

    It says Durst Laborator 54 Repro Universal Camera??

    So some confusion as to whether its actually an enlarger in the fist place.

    Sorry I don't know that model. I would suggest you phone Northern Photo. They are the durst service center. Speak to Terry. He knows a thing or two about durst kit. They have just moved premises and are in Leeds. Not too far from you I think.

    Trond, its exactly like that. Cheers.
    I picked it up this evening.
    Came with two condensers (if thats what the big glass domes are called) and one 135mm f5.6 Schneider - Kreuznach Componon lens.
    All seems to work fine apart from missing the neg carrier.
