This is my first post on the LF forum. I have been reading this site for a couple of years as I was deciding how, when and with what to get in to large format photopraphy. I really appreciated all of your constructive comments on questions that I had myself but other people had already asked.
For the last year and a half I have been using a marvelous KB Canham 5x7 (field) for B&W work. I use a Jobo 3006 drum for developing on an old motor base. Eventually I would like to get a CPP2.
I have been contact printing, but I am not getting the results I wanted (mainly because of exposure problems as I am slowly learning the Zone system). I am set up to take a class with John Sexton (The Fine B&W print) and I am afraid that I will be bitten by the enlargment bug.
Here is the question for the collective wisdom: I have the opportunity to get a Durst 138S at a reasonable price. For just a little bit less, I could get an Epson 750 and scan my film. What is it that I want in the end? An excellent print, of course. For those of you, with experience in both mediums, what would you advise a novice like me?
