    The enlarger I'm refering to is in my second post, the camera I'm refering to is in my first post

    I'm the one who referred to Meopta, the second post correctly referred to it a Opemus 5a!

    What lens is in the shutter on your camera? There are several possibilities, and they are all capable except the Tessar which is outstanding

    Durrr ... now I'm getting even more confused LOL

    But back to the main subject, alas not lucky enough to have the Tessar. It has a f3.5 105mm Nettar fitted. I tried it with a roll of HP5+ and looks sharp enough for my first outting into MF. I have a few rolls of old Tri-X in the cooler ready and waiting for the next outting.

    Thanks Jeanette ... alas the colum would collapse if I make the hole any bigger LOL There again it's the same ratio as 35mm and as I rarely use the whole neg for printing I could print the 6x9's as 6x6 negs for enlargements.

    Jay they do say small is beautiful and as it happens I rescued some prints 3"x5.5" today from the local market (shot in I think 1944) which proves the point.

    Also the chance to play ... errrm work with Azo is very tempting

    Hi
    I've just installed a wall mounted Devere 504 and this has given me two redundent enlargers both which can cover 6x9 format. one is an meopta Magnifax with both colour and B&W condenser head neg masks covering 35mm,6x6 and glass which you can then adjust the blades inthe neg carrier. It has a new transformer, two lens mounting plates, fine focus knob and extension and is in excellent condition.
    The other is autofocus Leitz Focomat IIc. This cost me an arm and a leg ten years ago but has been my main enlarger for that time. The neg carrier is superb, its a shame others have not followed this example, anyway this enlarger is purly B&W has a glass neg carrier that has several masks some of which I have made myself for the oversize printing. I also have two other neg carriers one is a fixed 35mm the other is aglassless 6x7 I think. Anyway if you are interested then PM.
    Regards
    Steve.

    I feel your fear of the slippery slope: I just bought a used SoHo cadet, which is basically a 6x9 Grandma-era point & shoot: 4 apertures, shutter 1/20s or T. If I could manage to understand the APUG forum, I'll post a picture, but otherwise one can google it. It's a beautiful object, all made of bakelite, and has that weird look that has become since associated with steampunk fiction... Those babies are so simple, yet use better film than traditional instamatics, that you want them to be the Holy Grail of easy/good quality photo...

    Speaking of enlargers for MF

    Can process lenses be used for enlarger lenses, and if so, within what limits?

    I have a 150 mm f/9 that's a little long but I figure will work for 6x9 negs.

    Thanks
