    Colour head for Omega D2

    I've just been given an Omega D2 with the variable condensor head and 3 lenses (28, 50, 75). It's set up for 35mm, but looks like it has the 4x5 condensors. I'd like to put a colour head on it to make Ilfochromes, although my primary printing will be B&W.
    Will a Super Chromega head fit on it, as I'm seeing one on E bay for a good price?

    Now I need to pick up lens that will cover 4x5 and a neg carrier for 4x5.

    I have a Super Chromega D head on my Omega. I'm not sure but I think the "D" designation is for 4x5.

    Join Harry Taylor's Omega enlarger forum at www.classic-enlargers.com, and all questions will be answered. I believe you can put a Super Chromega II D head on a D-2 if you change the lifter arms, which are a bit different on the later enlargers than on the D-II and D-2.

    If you have the variable condensor head (D-2V), then there is only one set of condensors. You change the position of the lens in the middle, I believe, for different focal lengths.

    Thanks for the link, I'll look there. The pic looks like what I want to do, so it seems possible right now. Yes, It's a D2 V enlarger. Thanks!

    I checked out Harry's forum and he said that yes, it will fit. Thanks for pointing me to the forum.
