Durst Enlrager Condenser
I managed to get a Durst m601 but only with one COndenser for 35mm.
Condensers seem to be rare or even non-existend on the second hand market.
Is there a way to get a hold of simple convex lenses to build a condenser with lenses of 80mm+ in diameter?
What about using condensers/lenses from other brands?
Maybe someone has some extra!
The Sivocon 80 pops up on ebay and elsewhere now and then. Just keep a patient eye on these places. There's one available on ebay Germany right now: http://www.ebay.nl/itm/DURST-M601-BW...ht_1539wt_1270
Sort of expensive, but I couldn't make one myself for that money either.
BTW, you won't need lenses longer than 80mm as the M601 doesn't do larger than 6x6.
Yea I meant Condenser Glass ~80mm in diameter. Saw it, the problem is that I need x2, as 1 wont work alone right? or is there a way to use 1 for 6x6(Sivocon 80) + 35mm one, Sivocon 50
You need a set, if you are not wedded to condensers you may be able to find the color insert to replace the condenser set up, athough the color insert has 2 mixing boxes the 80mm work well for 50mm as well.
Sorry, I misunderstood your talking about lens diameters- thought you were referring to enlarging lenses, but you obviously meant the condenser lenses.

If you can't find the condensers then I second the suggestion of looking for a CLS 66 colourhead + the light mixing box for 6x6, then you're covered for 35mm and up to 6x6.
