    Hello PKM

    I had a very, very, very bad year. The Berlin exhibition didn't sell any print, neither did my representative in Paris.

    Hope this gets better next year.

    How did you do?

    I use a 4x5 glass carrier and masks I made myself for smaller sizes that simply lay over the carrier. I am not aware of a specific glass carrier for medium format. Omega made a glass carrier for their older enlargers that should fit, but I find it much simpler to just use the 4x5 one. The 4550 has mixing boxes for 4x5, medium format (don't know specifically what size it is) and 35mm, which has a small condenser in it. The prints I get from 35mm negs are incredibly sharp, more than likely due to the hybrid diffusion/condenser arrangement. They are sharper than what I used to get from a medium format Saunders VCCE that was purely diffusion. It is in effect a similar system to the Leitz enlargers- large light source, one condenser.
    This is true. In fact I bought a new 4550 two years ago through KHB. They have all the accessories, and what they don't have they'll make/modify for reasonable prices. They've done a few "alterations" for me to my specs.

    They also sell Beseler stuff. In my experience they are very knowledgeable. They helped me with precise dimensions when I wanted to modify my carriers.

    Anyhow, might be worth a call.

    It's my first year and I have only been selling since Summer really. While I am optimistic and encouraged by what I have seen, I am no where near ready to turn down new commercial clients, I figure it will take at least 3 more years to show a profit.

    Are you still looking?

    Did you ever find the Saunders/LPL 4550XLG? I have one with VCCE that I have decided to sell. It's in like-new condition in the original boxing. Very lightly used. Not sure what I'm going to ask for it, yet, but we can probably work that out. I'm in Tucson, AZ, USA. That might shoot it into the ground, but thought I'd check anyway.
