    New LED Diffusion Lamp House for Omega D Enlargers

    Just wanted to announce that I am offering a new, LED powered, diffusion lamp house for the Omega D-series enlargers. The unit incorporates four Cree XM-L LED's and an external DC power supply. The product is very solidly built of steel and aluminum and should last a lifetime. The LED's are derated and well heatsinked which means they should last at least 50,000 hours. The exterior is painted with black wrinkle paint to match the enlarger. Photos are attached. It is available either directly from me for $269.00 or from a popular online auction site. More information including test data can be found at my website, www.modernenlargerlamps.com.

    It looks like a nice product. The link you your site didn't work for me, though.

    There have been a few questions about how to set up the Model 2, so I have added a video to my website, www.modernenlargerlamps.com, showing the lamp house being installed and adjusted to eliminate light leaks.

    By universal do you mean like what I have now but without the vertical arms attaching it to the enlarger? You would have to lift it with your hands.

    Would a 5x7 model fit on a 4x5 chassis? That would be a great incentive to look into a 5x7 camera. Even better if you could come up with an 8x10 model like the old Bessler head that fit on their 4x5 chassis. The difficulty of optically enlarging these are the biggest thing that keeps me from becoming seriously interested in either. Zone VI 5x7s come up occasionally but are much more expensive than a 4x5 Omega chassis and one of your heads, even including the likely price change for a larger model.
