    Due to where my school was located, I actually did have to walk up a hill both ways to go to school. I had to cross a flood plain in order to get to school. Of course there was the time I walked to school in a blizzard only to find out that the school was closed...

    Now days we get even a dusting of snow and all the schools close.

    This is actually way cheaper than the other equivalent offering on the market: http://www.de-vere.com/products.htm

    Very smart, and seems appropriately targeted for the right demographic.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    This enlarger is very vulnerable to obsolescence. I taught at a local JC that had a SCSI Fuji Pictrograph printer. Made beautiful color prints. It was cutting edge technology 15 years ago, but probably not usable because SCSI is dead. Apple Firewire is on it's way out and now Thunderbolt is in.

    I bought my Beseler 45MX and it's still relevant today. I use both analog and digital cameras. However, I build and grow on my knowledge about analog photography while my knowledge with digital technology will be obsolete very fast. I'm tech manager in a university art department and I can barely catch up on my narrow area of art and computers. One thing I know with technology. It allows us to make art faster, not necessarily better.

    Apparently it can also take standard negatives, so it won't be that vulnerable.

    I too believe it is a great idea. As soon as I can get my hands on my enlarger again I will try with some black-white photo taken by my S4.
