4x5 Enlarger - Most compactgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I won't expect the impossible, but what might be the most compact and easily put-up/break-it-down 4x5 enlarger. Likely will only enlarge to 11 x 14. THANK

The British made Lines & Jones model with cold-cathode head is easily the most compact and lightweight enlarger that accepts 5x4. It has a cantilever mechanism, so the column is relatively short, while it still has plenty of rise and fall in the head. Weighs about 20lb.

David, The AHEL enlargers are very compact but if you want to buy something old there are lots of Brands like " Horima" for example. regards

The Omega DII (not the D2). This enlarger does a great job with up to 4x5 negatives. It sets up and tears down quickly and they are inexpensive.
