Hi folks, I am having a weird problem with my enlarger and trying to enlarge 35mm using a 50mm lens.
I have an LPL7451, and a Nikkor 50mm f2.8.
I cannot for the life of me get any where close to a focus using this lens for 35mm film. I put the carrier in, and the image that comes out is very blurry. I tried to focus, when the bellow extends, the image gets even blurrier. When I turn it the other way, retract the bellow, the picture looks like it's focusing, but very soon, I run out of room to pull the below in any further.
I ended up using my 80mm lens instead.
I thought 50mm lens was meant for 35mm film? Right now, it feels like to me, the lens is just bit too far from the negative.
Any help would be appreciated.
