  1. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    Tom, frankly, I find the rails more of a hindrance than a help. I'm always switching lenses around and I just raise or lower the carriage while changing focus until I get what I want. I usually do...
  2. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    When I got my E-5, besides the condenser head there was a homemade cold light head with a circline lamp. I use a medium format cold light head as my light source for the condenser head so never used...
  3. Re: HOW TO Load Film Holders. A tutorial video for beginners.

    Nah, if it's white show it light and if it's black keep it in the dark. Besides, the raised dots are on the white side of the darkslide and what you can feel in the dark as you slide it in.

  8. Re: Rodenstock Geronar 210mm, f6.8 lens evaluation

    I had a 210 Geronar in my Busch Pressman kit and was very pleased with it. It was small, multi-coated, and probably the latest computation of a triplet lens. Used in the f/8, 11, 16 range it did...
  9. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    The clamps will do the trick. The clamps on mine are part of a circular plate that what you have sits on. The springs go on like this. Be careful, they are powerful. You can see that I had to find a...
  10. Re: Found an Automega E-5 Autofocus enlarger body

    I have one. The "autofocus" function is done by the large disc riding on one or the other of the long aluminum blades down the center. Each blade is specific to a different focal length lens (marked...

    Re: When does Photo-Flo go bad?

    It's not that Photo-Flo is unconditionally bad. it's that users don't follow the instructions and use too much of it. A little dab will do you - dab defined as a drop, two at the most. Use more only...

    If you use, or plan to, Grafmatic holders, there is a slight modification that has to be made on a III. I have 2 IIIs with no rangefinders and love them.

  28. Re: Anyone have experience fixing a Rittreck View?

    Since you are in Japan, you should be able to find an original 5x7 back for it. It is a lot of camera to lug around for 4x5. Send me your email and I'll send you an instruction manual.
