    LF lens board on Omega D2

    I am new to LF photography and I am in the process of acquiring accessories for my Omega D2 in order to enlarge 4x5 negs. I just purchased a used Schneider 150mm lens, but I am a bit confused about the type of lens board I need for my enlarger.

    I was told I need a 4.5 inch cone lens board in order to enlarge. Is this true or can I get away with using the traditional flat lens board? Does the cone allow me to enlarge in ways that aren't possible withthe flat lens board? Do I have an option between the two?

    I appreciate your response.

    Ask Harry:

    Harry's the worlds leading expert on Omega enlargers.
    I'm sure others here will be able to answer but Harry should be the official source for Omega info.

    Yes, you need the cone. It needs a circular lense board that is flat that the lense mounts to with a flange.

    Yes you need the 4 1/2 inch cone and the 6 1/2 inch condenser set. You can use up to a 105mm lens with the flat board. Another source of info for Omega enlargers is: http://www.khbphotografix.com/omega/
