    Ken & Matt,
    You guys are making me think....and that can be bad. :-)
    Now I'm thinking like you, TWO turrets. 50+80+105 (35mm+6x6+6x9) and 135+150 (4x5) or some variation of this.

    Noble,
    I was talking to one of the guys at the local photo shop and rather than the MF and LF enlarger setup that I had been thinking about, he suggested 2 LF englargers. Just set one up for 35+MF and the other for 4x5. That way I still have the option of going to 4x5 on either enlarger if I need to. And the baseboard of the 4x5 enlarger isn't that much larger than the baseboard of the MF enlarger. Then what to do with the MF enlarger? Oh more decisions...

    You guys did it to me.
    I'm buying a 2nd turret from Collin.
    It's all your fault ;-)

    I had a Nikon N-75 with a 28mm to 300mm zoom lens. I was happy.


    Then I joined APUG.
    I inherited a Mamiya C330 with three lenses.
    Sold the Mamiya C330 with three lenses and bought a Hasselblad 503CX with one lens.
    Then a 45° prism.
    Then three more lenses.
    Then more film backs.
    Then a Hasselblad 903 SWC.
    Then a Nikon F-100.
    Then a 4"x5" Pacemaker Speed Graphic.
    More lenses
    Then a 4"x5" Graflex Model D.
    Then Grafmatic backs.
    Then more lenses.
    An enlarger
    A drum print dryer
    A Jobo processor
    Two more 35mm cameras
    Then a Tessina camera
    Then a WideLux camera.




    I used to be satisfied. Now I am an APUG member.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    It is always nice when a person with a compulsion finds his proper home.

    I'm glad someone else is worse off than me.

    Well my 2nd turret has arrived

    Now to get the additional lenses to populate it.
    I'm still trying for a Componon-S 100 or EL-Nikkor 105, but I keep getting outbid. Oh well, I have plenty of time to wait for that lens.

    One thing you might think about. I have my darkroom in a basement and the humidity can get pretty high. I had a set of Schneider lenses all get hazy and one got fungus. Now I keep my lenses in a Tuperware container with silica bags to keep them dry. Changing lenses is so completely easy and quick that using a turret to make it even easier is not worth anything to me. I would rather keep my lenses in the dry box unless I am using them. Having a turret with all my lenses on it would be tempting to just leave them all out all the time.

    Me too. I finally gave in and purchased a small room dehumidifier on wheels. What a difference. Set it to 50% and the room is now perpetually cool and dry. I used to hate to store stuff down there. Now it's overflowing because it's my favorite place. I have to turn it off when processing film so the film doesn't curl when drying.
