    enlarger for medium format film.

    I have a LPL 66-s II that is able to go to 6 x 6 however I am about to start using a 6x7 camera.
    What enlargers are people using for B&W film for 6x7 film?

    Thanks.

    Have also a look on Kaiser, their system is very modular.

    I have a Fuijomoto G70 and a Kaiser VPM7005, both excellent.

    If you wanted to stick with LPL, the C7700 or the B&W version the LPL 7700 VCCE might be worth looking out for.

    If you have room for a 4x5 enlarger you'll be able to handle up to 6x9 and 6x12, and often they are built better too. You might even give 4x5 a try.

    I'd go for a larger LPL with a VCCE head. I have or have had a D2V, Leitz V35 and a Besslar 23c and I like my LPL7700 VCCE the best by far. The universal glass carrier is particularly nice.

    I used a Beseler 67C happily for decades. In the last couple of years of regular use I added a Beseler dichroic head which worked great.

    I still have the Beseler and hope to set it up again in a two enlarger darkroom. But in the meantime, it has been supplanted by a 4x5 enlarger - an Omega D6 with a Multigrade head.

    By the way, if you are looking at the LPL enlargers, it may help to note from the KHB link posted that they are badged differently in the USA (and possibly other locations).

    PS For all posts that include questions about equipment or material choices, it will really help if you indicate your location in your APUG profile. Availability of used equipment varies considerably by location.

    I second this idea.
