Hey cats and kitties,
I'm finally going to do it: I'm going to build a darkroom in my basement bathroom. There is a lot of work involved construction-wise first, but I wanted to start researching an enlarger. Here are my requirements:
Need to print up to 6x7cm negs
Either condensor or diffusion is fine
Hopefully no vibration of enlarger head at large print sizes
At least 11x14" prints on the baseboard
It's been so long since I've printed (college 13 years ago) that I can't remember anything else I would need. I used a Beseler 23C in college and it definitely did the job although there seemed to be a little bit of light fall off at 6x7cm with a Nikkor 105mm lens (I may be wrong, it's been a while).
I don't have too much room. The bathroom I'm going to convert is about 5'x10', so a 4x5 enlarger is probably not a good idea.
Thanks in advance,
