Omega 4x5 enlarger and Jobo film \ print processor
I have some darkroom equipment for sale.
The first group of items starts with an Omega D2 4x5 enlarger with a computer controlled Bessler color head. I have film carriers for 35mm, 120 6X6, and 4x5 film (may have some other carriers). The Bessler color head mixes the light in a chamber and the computer displays the Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow color values on a digital display. This approach guarantees consistent and repeatable color from session to session. There is a lever to remove the filters to facilitate image set up and focus. The enlarger is mounted to its original sturdy wood baseboard. I have to check, but I may also have the original Omega condenser head. The D2, with the color head, is great for color printing, but it also works extremely well with black and white variable contrast papers. With the filter lever flipped, you can of course used graded black and white paper.
With the enlarger you are welcome an assortment of paper easels, print trays, a timer, a 50mm and 75mm Nikkor enlarging lens, and other darkroom accessories. Everything is in really nice shape.
The second group is based around a Jobo CPA 2 Film and Print processor. The electric rotary processor has a temperature controlled water bath that hold 4 graduated cylinders and 6 bottles of tempered chemistry. A thermometer is also built in.
The advantage to using a rotary processors is excellent development consistency. In addition, very little chemistry is required per roll or print. It is a system used by many serious and professional photographers. With the Jobo, the set up is very flexible. It can be quickly configured to run small or large prints or a large or small number of films.
Included is a print \ film processing drum 2523 plus a 2870 extension tank. The film reels for this tank set include two 4x5 reels, and seven 35mm \ 120-220 reels and the film loader.
There is another tank system consisting of a 1520 tank and two 1530 extension tanks. This can be used for small prints or test prints. I have a collection of 35mm \ 120-220 reels for these tanks.
Also included is a Jobo film washer and other miscellaneous accessories. Everything works and is in great condition.
I think shipping the enlarger and its accessories would be difficult. It may be possible to ship the Jobo processor. I live in South Eastern Wisconsin and would be happy to work out something for delivery or pickup. I am more then willing to travel a few hours. I would like to sell the enlarger group as a package and the Jobo processor as a package.
If you are interested in one or both sets let me know and make a fair offer. Please let me know if you have any questions. JPEG photos are available.
