Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

hi all

 

I have no idea what to do, i am looking to buy a V35 Focomat Enlarger of a friend. I can find many unofficial information pages about it but cannot find any thing official. i was just looking for some help ans support pages from Leica Leitz, could anyone point me in the right direction. I heard somewhere that you can still buy new colour moduals from them but i cannot find it any where

 

Any help would be greatly received

 

Many Thanks

      Liebe Mitglieder und Besucher des Kundenforums,
       
      wollte meinen hochgeschätzten Focomat V35 nach Jahrzehnten wieder reaktivieren. Für eine gründliche Reinigung habe ich u.a. auch das Objektiv und die Objektivschnecke, den Vorschraubring etc. demontiert, das war vermutlich ein Fehler? Die Steuerkurve des Autofocus-Systems habe ich allerdings (aus Respekt vor der Technik) nicht angerührt!
       
      Zusammenbau erfolgte streng nach Original-Anleitung. Alles funktioniert wieder, aber ich erreiche bei offener Blende keine Schärfe mehr auf der Grundplatte (Säule auf Höhe "0" eingestellt), egal, in welcher Höhe sich der Vergrößerungskopf befindet. Meine Versuche haben ergeben, dass das Objektiv etwa 6 mm zu tief sitzt (von Hand in den Strahlengang gehalten). Ich meine mich zu erinnern, dass es früher unten nicht so weit herausgeschaut hat.
       
      Eine Anfrage bei Leica in Wetzlar blieb leider erfolglos, weil der letzte Fachmann für den V35 vor einiger Zeit in den wohlverdienten Ruhestand gegangen ist. Auch konnte man mir keine Schnittzeichnungen für die korrekte Montage der Bauteile oberhalb und unterhalb des Objektivträgers zur Verfügung stellen. Ich wurde allerdings auf dieses Forum verwiesen und habe diesen Vorschlag gern angenommen.
       
      Falls jemand glaubt, einen entscheidenden Tipp für die Lösung meines Problems zu haben, kann ich die Angelegenheit gern mit Detail-Fotos oder einer Handskizze ergänzen.
       
      Vielen Dank bereits im Voraus!

      Just want to share my experience which I made with a nearly mint Beseler 23C enlarger which I got from a friend of mine for free (in fact it is now my 4th enlarger after getting a 45M, 45MXT, and a 67S II). After having set up my existing enlargers for large format (4x5") and small format negatives printing, I planned to use the 23C for medium format size negatives (6x7 cm) since I also had a Schneider-Kreuznach 80/5.6 enlarger lens. What I was missing is the fitting negative holder for 6x7 cm - I checked online and found a few horrendously expensive used negative holders (the new ones from Beseler were even more expensive). I checked in my clutter box where I kept other scavenged darkroom material, and I found an Omega-enlarger based 6x7 cm negative holder. Glad I didn't buy any of the overpriced Beseler ones - because actually the Omega one fits in portrait mode nicely into the 23C enlarger. Of course there is a little gap between closed upper bellow unit and the holder, but I found it is not an issue at all (no light leaks out to an extent that it would endanger the printing process during exposure). I didn't find it described online anywhere that Omega negative holders can be used in certain Beseler enlargers! The Schneider-Kreuznach 80/5.8 lens also handles the 6x7 cm negative size well with sharp corners when stopped down a bit (I normally use my enlarger lenses at f/11). Didn't find this information mentioned anywhere either - only posts online about the Nikkor 80/5.6 enlarger lens which is able to handle 6x7 cm negative size, too.  
       
      Does anybody else made similar experiences and used parts of different enlarger types on another to make things work? Or using an enlarger lens less known or supposedly not to work well with a specific negative size but it still works okay? Please share some low cost - big gain experiences!

      One guy was offering a complete darkroom equipment for 50 euros incl. Durst M605 bw enlarger with Schneider companon lens (he doesn't mention which one). I will go and see its condition but I have very limited knowledge. 
       
      So I need your help. I would like to ask what should I look for? Only things that I am think of the film carriers, fungus/scratches on the lens, timer, bulb.
       
      Thanks a lot in advance!
