    Condenser - no question.

    Doesn't need to be a condenser head, just high contrast, whatever the means. A good VC paper will get
    around grade 5 or so, way past this kind of problem.

    But a condenser will give you much more inherent contrast before you even introduce filtration or graded paper.

    Agreed, but also more spotting afterwards. And the pros & cons of condenser vs diffusion heads were
    spelled out decades ago, so no need to repeat them. And it's not particularly hard to diffuse a condenser
    head if you need to.
