    Ilford C700 enlarger question (its the same as a Omega C700 I think)

    Hi

    I bought one of these second hand, and was wondering what condensors were needed to print 120?

    I didn't ge tan instruction book with it - if anyone has one I could get a copy of I would appreciate it

    Cheers

    Andrew

    "Clear optical glass [non-adjustable] condensers give high contrast and optimal illumination for all enlarging lenses from 35mm to 105mm."
    How can that be? Maybe the standards for even illumination are not so high for this enlarger or, more likely, there is a lot of diffuse light bouncing around in the head. That is not a bad thing.

    If it's the same as the Omega, you shouldn't need any change of condensers. It works with all three formats by just a change of lenses.

    Oh lucky you! I don't even have anywhere to put an enlarger but that was kind of an afterthought. Hope you have much success with yours.
