Enlarging Focusers

Even the finest enlarging lens cannot produce a sharp print if not focused accurately. Peak Enlarging Focusers are recognized by darkroom professionals and enthusiasts world-wide as being the very best available. All models are based on the "aerial image" principle, which ensures a bright crisp image. The front surface mirrors prevent ghost images, and rectangular mirrors allow the focuser to be moved away from the image center. The fine quality eyepieces include adjustment for diopter correction. A special "BG" filter, included with the Type I Focuser, can use used for critical B&W printing to match the light visible for focusing to the spectral sensitivity of the photographic paper.
