Thus, when I liquidate one of my kids' college funds to buy the 210 SS-XL, I think I'll try it without the filter for a while.
    Tim,

    All you need is a second mortgage on the house.

    Light fall off around the edges. For black and white, this can be a nice "feature" if you tend to burn the edges of your prints.

    However with some enlargers, they have light fall off as well so with the two combined, you actually get back some of what you lose and it may just come out even.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
