  2. I have never developed the first picture; but, when I had the opportunity
    to purchase two Durst Enlargers, I took advantage of a good deal, thinking
    I could set one up for 35mm and one for Medium format..
    My questions are: What is the difference between these two enlargers?
    And, which of the two would be considered the better and more versatile
    model. I saw something about a CLS Color head for the 601; but, missed out
    on it because I didn't know if I needed it. All help will be appreciated.

  3. I'm really curious -- How does a photographic enalrger, an optical and film system, relate
    to Digital SLR cameras and periphery ?

    Those enlargers certainly don't, but wasn't there a digital enlarger
    that allowed people to put digital images onto photographic paper?
    Seems like I heard about one some time ago. I don't know how it
    functioned. Some of the people doing black and white work were
    talking about it, because you can still do images on archival papers.

    These are similar enlargers, made in Italy of very high quality.

    The difference between the two is that the M-601 will also handle the
    various digital RAW image formats, while the M-600 is limited to the
    usual TIFFs, JPGs, BMPs, etc.
