    Focomat Ic

    Hello there,

    I may get LEITZ WETZLAR Focomat Ic with Focotar 1:4,5 lens. But, I have no idea about this enlarger in general and whether it has any provision to use multi-grade filter. Please help.

    Agfa Isolette III: Amazingly simple, yet it produces outstanding negatives.

    Some models have a rack for filters. Otherwise you put them under the lens during exposure.
    1C is very simple and compact. Focotar is a beauty. Perfect for small prints.

    Some Focomat Ic enlargers are known as "Focomat Ic Color" enlargers because they have a slide-out drawer in the enlarger that allows you to insert a filter above the condenser and below the bulb. I've read of a variety of solutions for folks who have Ic enlargers without the filter drawer: pull off the bulb housing and lay a filter on top of the condenser, or hold a filter under the enlarging lens.

    Dream enlarger!
    I own two Ic colors, one V35 and one IIc.
    These days I use the Ic the most. It's always a joy to use and touch the damned thing!

    I just bought Focomat Ic(presume it is B/W only) for Euro 39. Thanks for all the replies.
