Forum members in the vicinity of Niagara : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have something of an odd request - I'm currently trolling the market for a 4x5 capable enlarger (having converted all other formats to digital scanning, printing, can't afford a good 4x5 scanner:( sigh! ), I am finding that the likelihood the model I find will be located in the US, because I'm not seeing very many used models in Canada. The rub? -Because I'm located in Canada, the shipping costs go ballistic on these once they go over the border because of their weight (I'm looking at $200-300cdn.) I'm wondering if there is a forum member who is a reasonable days drive from US Niagara Falls/ Buffalo area who would be willing to receive a shipment, for direct pickup by me. There would be no cost involved, just a shipping address in the US. Please email me off the forum if any of you might be willing. Thanks!

I don't know what you are thinking, Toronto is full of 4x5 Omega's with colour, soft or condensor heads. There is going to be a photo swap meet in Toronto on May 5th sponsored by the Phoo Historic Society and I know there will be 5 to 10 4x5 elargers there for sale , most go fo about 400CDN, If you want some people to find one for you in Canada contact the photo historic society and I am sure Larry B. can find what you are looking for.

KHB Photographix, Henry's, Downtown Camera or Vistek probably have used 4x5 enlargers. Check them out in downtown Toronto.
