    Barry, is your lens of the same shape? Can you try to measure the condenser's focal length like I did and see if it roughly fits?
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Michel--My condenser unit is rectangular--it doesn't have the cut off corners. I can try prying it open to measure the focal length. My guess is it will be a similar (but not exact) match. As long as the condenser illuminates the diagonal of your negative, it will be fine. It's not so critical and you can probably either fit the unit as-is or open it and use one or both of the condensers in your casing--although you may need to make a simple spacer.

    I managed to pry open the housing and big surprise--the condenser has a focal length between 110 and 120mm. The condenser lens is square with slightly cut corners. Man, I've never had such a hard time giving something away! How about I charge $50? Maybe that'll work better.
