So I have been using a durst laborator 1000 with a condenser head since I started printing and have gotten great results with it. I mainly split grade print and my 0 and 5 filters are just about shot!
So I have a durst 401mk2 colour head sitting there (enlarger came with both) and was thinking about hooking it up. I'm missing the transformer for the colour head, but have a power supply that will do the job well.
So for the sake of an hour or so I could have it running (assuming the lamps are ok!).
What's the general thinking on these? I've heard that condenser heads can be more contrasty, but not sure if that's universal opinion?
Is it worth going ahead and hooking it up?
