    Has Calumet Dropped Zone VI Equipment?

    Hi:

    I was looking at the Calumet site and I don't see items like the Zone VI enlarger, print washers or compensating enlarging timer (there is a 220V one, but not 110v). I see a distinct lack of Zone VI products.

    Does anyone know if they have 'officially' stopped making new Zone VI products?

    On July 1 Calumet says it's going to start selling a Zone VI LED 4x5 VC Light Source. Try searching this Item No, EN6400 into the www.calumetphoto.com website. Mysterious goings on for sure...

    I did a search for Zone VI on their website and came up with 9 pages of items.

    I can't suffer through their awful web site but the catalog they sent me a few weeks ago still has at least some Zone VI stuff....and a whole bevy of price increases.

    Maybe you just caught the web site at a bad time?

    Yes, there is stuff in inventory, but I didn't find the main items that I mentioned. I did a search and went thru all 9 pages and it's all mostly parts, they still stock a 4x5 camera and light meter and I suppose you could put together an enlarge a piece at a time. Mostly small items like neg carriers, lens boards, etc.

    BTW, they do show the LED Type 2 lighthead for 4x5 at $1300.
