I am interested in developing and printing my own film. I understand that after development, you use an enlareging machine which shinesthrough the film onto the film paper and thus gives you the print.
I am wondering what the difference is between the more expensive enlargers i have seen second hand, and the lesser expensive ones? Is it the enlargement that is a big cost? It seems logical that if you have a poor quality enlargement you will always get poor quality results?
What sort of enlarger would be reccomended for black and white 35mm film enlargement for a begginer looking for good value enlarger. I have seen the vintage ones on ebay, will these get the job done, or is it better to spend some more on a newer type of enlarger?
