The 4550XLG VCCE's extra-long box-beam girder of deep-anodized aluminum is strong, rigid and vibration-free. Allows you to print 20x24 images on the baseboard with all film formats from 35mm to 4x5.
Fully counterbalanced carriage for effortless magnification control, plus an extended chassis, puts the lens axis just over fourteen inches from the column, making the enlarger easy to use with a large 20x24 professional 4-bladed easel on the baseboard.
Smooth controls; die-cast lens stage with square, extra-long bellows travels on twin stainless steel focusing tracks; left- and right-hand fast focus controls plus a 5:1 geared fine focus system.
Exclusive modular design allows changing out filtration modules: Dichroic, B&W Variable Contrast/Constant Exposure (VCCE), and B&W straight diffusion.
High-output quartz-halogen light source features a 250W lamp with integral dichroic reflector, cooled by a vibration-free, super-quiet Whisper Tone fan and high-efficiency heat sink. Voltage stabilized power supply regulates output to within +/- 2%, ensuring consistent color temperatures and predictable, repeatable exposures. Large baseboard is a solid inch thick, fully laminated, and steel-reinforced. Baseboard dimensions 31.5x23.75. Large, non-skid/non-marring feet add stability. Dual filtration channels in one head. Channel one is calibrated for Kodak Polycontrast III RC and compatible papers (grades 0-5), channel two is calibrated for Ilford Multigrade III RC and compatible papers (grades 0-5). Memory-Lock white-light system for easy focusing. Automatic neutral density (ND) filter keeps exposure times constant throughout the contrast range.
