    A further question about the 4550 for those who either have one or know:

    If I get the wall-mounting kit, is there really any need for the XL column? It would seem to me the answer is no, but maybe there is something not obvious. Can't one simply mount the non-XL column high enough that the top matches what the XL column-height is?

    Thanks for any advice here...

    You could, but if you wanted to do small prints you might have a problem, since the bottom of the column would be higher.
    But you could work-around that by using a longer lens.

    Eddie, I beg to differ with you. I make 20X24.s on the base board of my Saunders/LPL 4550 XLG routinely and I use a Saunders 4 blade adjustable easel to do them. And it fits on the base board. A bit tight, but it fits. Don

    I would never make smaller than 8x10, and it would seem to me that it would still be in the range for a 50mm lens -- if not, as you suggest, a 75mm or 80mm would take care of it.

    Does anybody know how much taller the XL model is than the regular one? The company site (if there is one) is not immediately obvious after Googling.

    Don- The OP mentioned a 4550, not a 4550XLG. The XLG has the longer column. I have an XLG, too. No problem with a 20x24 on that one.
