since I'm a brand new member:
I am into analogue photography and stuff for about 2 years now and recently started printing my own pictures on this enlarger. I never had problems, it is lot of fun! I switched from digital and never looked back since... the only problem I have with this hobby is all the money I'm spending on new gear!
I love Photography so much that I'm spending most of my free time on it and now I am trying to apply with my pictures at University (You have to show them a portfolio too proof that you are good enough for their standards). I bought a bunch of Paper (the new Adox MCP and Ilford Warmtone baryt). My results are getting better.
The enlarger is a great machine, works well, but I can't enlarge 35mm Negs much bigger than 18x13cm... I need 24x30 sized prints for the application... I could make digital prints out of scanned negative files but I'd rather have full control of how my pictures really look.
So. I have the M605 with Color Head, 50mm lens, a lensboard that is recessed and a thing right above the negative holder. I don't know what it is called (condenser?) but I can switch between "Box 35" and "Box 66" there. I always used the Box 35 setting for 35mm enlarging. The enlargment arm (hope you know what I mean) seems to have enaugh travel for bigger prints, but I simply can't turn the images sharp until I try to make bigger prints.
I don't have these problems with 6x6 negatives.
Thanks for your help!!
I attached some pictures, I hope it helps!
