    i would have to double check at the lab, but are you sure this enlarger will support that format?

    you might try Harry at the Omega site, i am sorry, off the top of my head i don't remember his web url, but he is the current expert with all things omega

    I'm pretty sure the B-22 will support 6x6 and smaller, not sure about 6x4.5 neg carriers, unless they are the same as B-66 and C-700.

    new info: C-700 6x4.5 carrier # 423-126 may fit your machine

    I've got a B-22 Omega Enlarger. Works just fine with a 6 x 4.5 negative carrier.

    Here is where I bought the carrier:

    The carriers for C700 will fit the B-22; however the 6x4.5 can be a bit hard to find.
    Try www.eplevine.com
    I think that is where I ended up finding one.

    I use a 6x6 carrier and made a mask for 645 out of black construction paper and insert it into the 6x6. Works great, so if all you can get your hands on is a 6x6 that is an option.

    Hmm. My B-22 does not look like it would support that format.

    I will have to investigate further, but just out of hand, I doubt it.

    Are there different versions of the B-22 regarding negative size?

    OK, I just measured, and without an adapter and with the negative tray/condenser mesh, I don't see how anything in the 6" range is possible.

    My condenser head is about 3.75" in diameter.

    Am I missing something? (I am a newbie)
