I taught photo and have acquired two 1cs, two LPLs, a Durst 601 and the Valoy II. The Valoy will be the last to go due to its simplicity and size. If you project on 8x10 paper and have limited space the Valoy II is near perfect.
I also love the 1c. Currently I'm shooting MF 98% of the time so the LPL is in use.
I did not know the condenser removal trick. Where do you place filters? I imagine using the red filter assembly with glass removed works. My Valoy lacks the filter so I can't try it. I just hold the filter, place the filter on top of the condenser or use graded.
