    Re: LPL 4550XL + Heiland LED Explainer?

    Yes, minutes and not seconds and my 35 year experience with 4x5, 5x7 8x10 and 11x14; and enlarging in both glass and glass-less carriers gives a different opinion from yours!

    Re: LPL 4550XL + Heiland LED Explainer?

    That's your opinion, have anything to back it up? I use glass carriers, so I don't have a horse in this race, besides, I print sheet film in a 5108 NOT the LPL, which I only use for 6x6 and 135....

    NO!!! Listen to what Bob said! A 360 is for 8x10 or larger. 5x7 requires a 180 or at most a 210 mm lens. If you have a 210 Rodagon, use it. It will handle 12x enlargement as well or better than a...

    Re: Durst 138 which color heads can work?

    A Multigrade head prints B&W, NOT color. I assume the enlarger will come the standard Condenser head which prints B&W. If you really need a color head, look for a Durst CLS-301 complete with power...
