Leica introduces the Leica Q-P, another Leica Q compact camera with a full-frame sensor. The technical specifications of the Leica Q-P are identical to those of the serial Leica Q.The difference is in the camera design...
I bought a Focomat 1(is this the same as a 1a?) about 15 years ago, but never got around to using it. I've done quite a bit of printing. Just not with this enlarger.
Now, I'm setting it up. I cleaned everything. The condenser looks great. it has a Focotar 4.5, which I've heard isn't great, but will do for now.
I need to rewire it, but that's no problem.
My questions :
a) Can I add the anti-Newton glass to this enlarger? Or do I need it?
b )There's no filter drawer, nor does it have the swinging filter holder under the lens. Can I cut VC filters to fit between the pins on the negative holder and slide them in on top of the negative holder before bringing the condenser down? Any other/better ideas?
c) There s a 75w bulb in it. The PH/211. Is this the correct bulb? I read a post where it was making exposures excessively long. I plan to try 16x20s at some point, but 11x14s regularly. Also, is there an LED alternative?
