Default Hello from Plymouth UK

Hi all
My name is Dave. I am returning to the darkroom after 30+ years having had to stop to support and bring up my children.
Have resurrected my know old enlarger (fujimoto G70) and jobo cpe2. Have also been given a Meopta opumus 6 with both colour and B/W heads and other Meopta gear.
I'm looking forward to the knowledge and insights from other FADU members have on offer and hope in time I will be able to reciprocate to old and new member.

Welcome aboard! The Opemus 6 is a nice piece of equipment, especially with the Meochrom head.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. BuzzNL. Opemus enlarger was quite a surprise for an enlarger made for the ameture market. I was lucky, It came with Meocrhome 3 head + the B/W condenser head.

Using an Opemus 5 myself, I totally agree!
