The specially designed Omega 670VCCE variable contrast system incorporates a unique, dual-range design that provides two separate filtration channels covering all popular variable contrast papers. Simply dial in the desired filtration then the enlarger compensates to maintain constant exposure!
As filtration is changed, the enlarger automatically introduces the correct amount of neutral density to maintain constant exposure throughout the range of paper grades. This is achieved with state-of-the-art, dichroic cut-off filters which selectively pass certain wavelengths while rejecting others, resulting in a spectrally pure beam of light.
The 670VCCE features the same chassis and baseboard as the popular LPL 670MXL dichroic and 670CXL triple-condenser enlargers.
What's more, the 670VCCE can be purchased as a complete enlarger or lamphouse only, for use on an existing 670-series chassis. Lamphouses are completely interchangeable, without tools.
NOTE: Does Not Come With Lens & Negative Carrier
- Dual Filtration Channels The heart of the 670VCCE is its revolutionary lamphouse.
Two independent filtration channels allow use of all popular contrast papers:
Channel one is calibrated for Kodak Polycontrast IV, Kodak Polymax and other equivalent variable contrast papers.
Channel two is calibrated for use with Ilford Multigrade IV RC papers, or compatible papers such as Agfa and Oriental.
A convenient slide-switch makes channel selection quick and easy. Once the appropriate channel has been chosen, you simply dial in the desired paper grade.
Paper grade readout displays are illuminated, stepless and marked in half-grade increments:
Channel one displays filtration settings from -1 to 6,
Channel Two displays filtration settings from 00 to 5. The unused channel readout is automatically masked to prevent the possibility of error.
