Chromega E
5"x7" Enlarger

Introduced: 1972
Discontinued: 2014


Super Chromega E Dichroic II 5x7 Enlarger

The Chromega E Dichroic II Enlarger was the latest in a long series of 5"x7" enlargers emanating from the large format enlargers first developed for the U.S. military during World War II.  As with the Chromega F, the condenser head was discontinued shortly after the colorheads became available.

Features include double inclined girders and geared elevation control. The dichroic lamphouse is of the same design as the Super Chromega D Dichroic, with a single 250w quartz-halogen lamp, thumbwheel filtration adjustment, white light switch, and interchangeable mixing chambers.

The appearance of the Chromega E Dichroic Enlarger has changed over the years. Early enlargers resembled the D6-XL, with plain aluminum rails, painted parts finished in grey, and the counterbalance springs mounted at the top of the column. Late production enlargers are finished in black, and the counterbalance springs have been relocated to the rear of the carriage.

Used Advice: Still fully serviceable, but square lens cones for longer focal length lenses have become scarce. Avoid the late production round substitutes which vignette the image.
