Subject: [Leica] Recommendations for an enlarger
From: abridge at (Adam Bridge)

I'm seriously thinking it's time to have an in-house darkroom and I
think I have the place.

I'd like a recommendation for an enlarger for black and white printing
ONLY, probably a color-head since I often do split-contrast prints,
suitable for at least 11 x 17 prints - what's the point in doing only
8 x 10.

Also a discussion of lenses would be good.

I need enough information so I can buy a used unit, assuming I can find one.

I find the darkroom informs the lightroom just as film informs digital
(and vice versa for both).

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
