Omega 209457 overview

  • 1Description

The Omega/LPL 4 x 5" Enlargers are available in two series: The top-of-the-line 4550XLG series, and the value-oriented 4500-II series. 4550XLG Enlargers feature a longer column than the 4500-II models, as well as an extended chassis and oversized baseboard for enhanced maximum enlargement capability.

In addition, 4550XLG Enlargers have a higher-power light source (with higher-performance cooling system to match), for faster printing. Enlargers from either series may be purchased in color dichroic, straight black & white diffusion, or black & white variable contrast, constant exposure (VCCE) configuration, depending on the filtration module selected.

Additional slide-in modules may be purchased separately, and are fully interchangeable among Saunders/LPL 4 x 5" Enlargers.

Note: Does not include lens or negative carrier

All the standard features of the 4550XLG with Dichroic Filtration Module: 0-200 Yellow, 0-200 Cyan and 0-170 Magenta stepless and continuously variable filtration. Permanent, fade-free dichroic filters. Color-coded, illuminated filtration scales in 1cc increments.
Scratch and dust suppression characteristics of diffusion-type light source.
Factory-aligned carriage and column for perfect alignment and elevation.
Smooth-as-silk controls, unmatched by other enlargers. Die-cast lens stage with square, extra-long bellows travels on twin stainless steel focusing tracks.
Convenient elevation system with hand grip for rapid lifting, and a drive knob for finer changes. Separate locking knob.
Memory-Lock white-light system for easy focusing.
Built-in, vibration-free noiseless blower plus heat sink.
Left and right-hand fast focus controls plus a 5:1 geared fine focus system help you achieve tack-sharp results with speed and confidence.
Fully laminated, oversize neutral gray baseboard with vibration-dampening doubler plate.

    Omega 209457 reviews

    LPL 4550XLG 4x5 Color Dichroic Enlarger is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best enlarger ever built I have used this enlarger for quite a while now for everything from 35 mm to 4x5 and it always delivers consistent easily reproducible results. Any enlarger is going to be a compromise and perhaps fail to deliver on a certain desired feature. Considering the available accessories, the build quality, the elegantly styled chassis whose form speaks to it's functionality, the darkroom diehard is bound to find a lot to love about this workhorse of an enlarger. It is heavy yet easily assembled; precise and certain movements on raising or lowering the head. I have used the color dichroic head exclusively for both color and b&w printing with excellent results. My other enlarger is a Leica Focomat V35 purchased from B&H used department (a real find at $500 but a performer worth 10x that!) which is limited to 35 mm of course. Anyone looking to upgrade to a more durable enlarger or jumping into printing for the first time would do well to put the LPL 4550 XLG at the top of their list.
