I want to print some 6X9 B&W negatives with a Beseler 23C-11 equipped with a Dual Dichro S color head. The color head has a Sylvania 300 watt bulb, #J498.
The unit prints very slow, about two stops slower than when I print with the original condenser head with its 75 watt bulb.
Is this normal? Are bulbs available for the Dual Dichro S color head that print faster?
