    Community darkroom in the Netherlands with 8x10” enlarger

    I know this is a long shot, but does anybody know of a community darkroom in the Netherlands that I can rent that contains a 8x10” enlarger and allows for 50x60 prints and larger?

    I'd be curious too, as I can 'only' contact print at the moment.

    As you both are dutch, let me point a particular DIY solution while you don't find a 10x10 "aircraft carrier", this is a dutch CAMBO 8x10. Simply substitute the ground glass by a clear (well flat) glass and you have mostly an enlarger. Until now I tested the CAMBO in horizontal projection, perfect... also I've detailed Solidworks drawings to assemble it vertical and horizontal, quite easy, please PM if you want the drawings. At all a Pro system, but a totally operative amateur solution with no limitations.

    Nothing new, Graflarger concept is so old, but thanks to RGB LEds we have easy split grade, by adjusting exposure time for purple(R+B) and yellow(R+G).

    Find an old Durst 138/139 on Marktplaats and buy this 8x10 conversion https://www.photrio.com/forum/thread...ersion.164865/. I did and it works great!

    Hi Jeroen,

    that’s a great suggestion. I actually have three Durst 138’s in storage. I’ll reach out to the seller.
