I just want something that works and is efficient. Better yet, Amergraph even has a discounted rate for members of APUG!

I did notice the conversion option for using low-power tungsten. Is the light diffused in some way to avoid hot-spots? I plan to use this for 7 x 17. *** Just read the article on Unblinking Eye. I think I'm sold!! ***

Thanks again!

I tested the ULF-28 extensively over several months and offered my suggestions to AmerGraph as to how to optimize it as a multi-purpose printer that could work with most photographic processes, including alternative processes, contact speed silver chloride papers, and VC papers. However, since I print very rarely withi VC silver processes I decided not to have my own unit retro-fitted with the low power tungsten light source, so your question about hot-spots with this option is not something I can address. I have all of the other options offered except this one.

However, the desingers addressed the issue of even lighting so well in the initial desing I feel confident they did a good job with the low-power tungsten light as well.
