    Wasp!

    Successful day yesterday. I am now the proud owner of a Wasp 5x4" condensor enlarger with Phago 150mm/4.5 lens, and a dry mount press plus accessories.

    I am looking forward to spending an couple of evenings later in the week printing some 6x9cm negs from my Moscow 5 and starting to think about investing in a 5x4" monorail camera :-)

    Lol! I don't know if Wasp is the make or model - I'm guessing it's pretty old though!

    I thought a wasp was primarily an insect?

    I thought it was an Italian motor scooter... http://www.motorbike-search-engine.c...a_history.html.

    Ah, a fatal mistake. Getting a 4x5 enlarger will inevitably mean buying a 4x5 camera soon - resistance is futile...

    Good luck with it, Bob.

    Sorry about the historical inaccuracy. I prefer it to include "straight", though... it sounds so much more... puritan... of course, back then there was no question whether a man was straight or not, they just thought that the other guys were completely eliminated by the Spanish Inquisition :rolleyes:

    Show us a picture of the Wasp, if you are able to.

    I suppose it is a UK-made enlarger - they seem to have somewhat peculiar names. Mine is a Gnome, and true to form it only takes 24x36 negatives (and barely, at that).
