model name / number: D2V
This enlarger is an Omega D2V.
It is in very good condition. It is a variable condenser model so that you can adjust the light column size for different film formats.
I used this model of enlarger when I was in photo school at MSU in the early 80's.
I thought they were excellent enlargers, which is why I bought it.
The enlarger lens I have is a Rodenstock APO Rodagon 50mm f 2.8. It is like new. This is a very high quality lens designed for color printing, but can be used for B&W printing as well.
This lens is designed for 35mm projection.

I have film holders for the enlarger in the following sizes: 4x5 inch, 6x9 cm, 35mm and 35mm mounted slides or chromes.

For the wet side of the darkroom I have:

Film developing tanks:

One tank is a 4x5 Combi Plan for 4x5" sheet film development. This tank is the gold standard for 4x5" film development.

One is a stainless steel tank that will hold two, 36 frame, 35mm rolls of film. Two 35mm reels for this tank.
I also have a medium format film reel that can be processed in this stainless tank.

I have a 35mm bulk film, 35mm film canister loader. You can save a lot of money loading your own 35mm film canisters. Lots of empty canisters included. You just buy the 35mm film in bulk rolls.
I used this bulk loader to load my own infrared film for my Olympus camera, for infrared studies in landscape and portraiture photography.

Photo paper developing trays:
(1) 16x20 washing tray
(4) 11x14 developing trays
(8) 8x10 developing trays
(3) 5x7 developing trays
(3) 4x6 developing trays
(4) tongs for handling wet paper

One lead, x-ray blocking, film bag for airline travel.

An unopened package of Kodak Fixer. Unopened A and B packages of Kodalith high contrast developer.
Solarol developer (unused) for B&W special effects from Photographers Formulary.
Also a bag of different chemicals for fine grained film development from photographers formulary. Typically used to develop Kodak PanX B&W film for extremely fine detail.

I also have 12 unopened cans of Kodak Microdol X fine grained film developer. This is typically used for
Kodak PlusX or Kodak PanX film development. It will produce extremely fine grain and highly detailed
negatives.


I have been looking on the internet for values on these items. It seems to vary a bit from place to place.

The Rodenstock 50mm 2.8 APO Rodagon enlarger lens is listed online at between $350-1,200. This a very high end lens and is like new in its original case.

The Omega D2V enlarger seems to go anywhere from $200-1,100. My example is in very good shape.

All of the trays and film developing tanks, chemicals, bulk film loader, are all in great shape, but would probably be worth about $400 collectively if purchased new. The microdol X fine grain film developer alone, is probably worth over $200, if you can even find it.

If you are interested in taking all of it, I would let it all go for $825.

All you would need is a warm water supply and drain, a darkroom light and a timer for the enlarger to get started on your
B&W, creative, photographic journey.

Silver prints are archival and it is a lot of fun!



Thanks for your interest.
