    Anyone using Heiland Splitgrade system?

    Looking at their system that uses a converted 45s Beseler head.

    Would like some feedback from users.

    Thanks

    I use it. I like it very much. It makes it very easy to get a decent workprint and has all the tools to get a fine print from that.

    One of the better investments for my darkroom.

    I have the Zone VI module, and in the last few years of running a college darkroom have used it extensively in manual on a variety of Omegas. No problems other than the most recent software update dropped some paper types long-discontinued in the real world, but that I have frozen stock of. Without hesitation I'll say that it has paid for itself in paper savings.

    I use it on a Kaiser 6x6 and it works also in manual mode with my Durst Laborator 138S. It is right, you have a good first workprint without any test strips. But it is still you who has to interpret the negative. I use it with great success for lith printing, where I get a very good guess about the exposure time from the measured exposure time and the measured paper grade.

    after thinking about buying it for a long long time, i finally ordered one for my V35 focomat. as Rudiger says, it gives you a very good print the first time and lets you adjust both the exposure and the contrast in 10% increments. i am very happy with it.

    I use their coldlight splitgrade head on a Laborator 1200 and also the splitgrade on a V 35 Focomat. Itīs easy to switch from one head to the other on the Heiland controller.

    Itīs much easier now to get a good working print in the first run, but as already has been said before, itīs up to you to make the final print!

    Soooooooo..

    Filters are controlled by the control box that is on the base board....and a motor drives the filters?

    Guess there must be a meter system based on response above.

    I really do not know anything about the operation and benifits.... a on-line friend recommends this rather than trying to find a used ilford 500 system.


    Thanks
