    The diffusion disc is integral in the use of cold light heads, and of course it was utilized in my own printing. If you are still using a cold light head, I suggest you try the test which I mentioned above. If you are satisfied with the results, no problem then. I can only comment from my own personal experience in using cold light heads. That is to say, not good.

    Try it and see. The older Aristo heads work fine with Ilford MG paper and filters if you add some extra yellow. In the mean time keep your eye out for a good color head. The ability to combine varying amounts of yellow and magenta filtration in the same exposure is a fantastic tool. You can also print with the Y or M in separate exposures. Basically you have the control to do what you want. If you ever use a glass carrier a condenser head has the potential to drive you crazy with dust.

    Realize that choosing between condenser, cold light and dichroic head is like choosing between rangefinder, SLR and TLR. There is no agreement as to which is best and you can make bad images with all three until you get proficient.

    Sorry Paul Ron, I already gave it away with the Beseler, after I bought my Durst.
