    Re: Durst Laborator 1200 Alignment

    This day and age is the end of the 'good old days' when large format equipment was thrown away or given away for free. Yes, 'this day and age' one has to 'pay to play. '

    I resisted the urge to open mine up any more than needed for the electrical repairs. Since the filters are mirrors, I treat them like 35mm SLR mirrors...don't touch unless absolutely necessary!

    If one separates a photograph from its medium it becomes something else.
    Digital is different, because there is no 'medium.' Binary is not a 'medium' it is an abstraction.

    Yes, power the EST1000 with 220 or 240V. That supply will need to be rated at least 1000W. When you plug the EST1000 to the wall and turn it on, the 1000W lamp will not go on until there is 120 to...
