The C7700MX is a combined Professional enlarger, Slide duplicator, and Copy stand In its first configuration, the C7700MX is a capable enlarger fitted with non-fading dichroic filters calibrated in Kodak units.

It will accept all standard negative sizes from 16mm to 6x7cm. It also features illuminated colour coded filtration readouts for easy adjustment in the darkroom, with maximum filter densities of 200 yellow, 170 magenta and 200 cyan.

The column height is 110 cm, allowing you to make an impressive 20 x 24inch print on the baseboard with a 6x7 negative and 80mm lens (using an oversized easel). Should this not be large enough, there are various other options open to you: you can either loosen the lock nut or tilt the head to project onto a wall - or you can loosen the column lock nut and swivel it around 180? to allow you to project onto the floor.

If you find you need to correct the converging verticals, you can simply tilt the head and lens stage to create the desired effect. The C7700MX is primarily a colour enlarger/duplicator; however there are two other interchangeable heads available should you wish to have more control over your black and white work:

* VCCE head (variable contrast constant exposure) which allows you to dial in multigrade settings up to grade 5 (in either Kodak or Ilford units) on a single dial, with a built-in neutral density filtration system to give a constant exposure throughout the range.
* Triple condenser head for a more subtle finish, complete with filter drawer to add any required multigrade filtration.

The optional MX-1 accessory kit converts the C7700MX into a copy stand. Simply slide off the projector assembly and mount the copy camera adaptor and counter balance weights and you have a fully featured copy stand. Mount a film stage on the lamphouse and your C7700MX is transformed into a professional duplicator, enabling you to copy negatives, positives and mounted slides with ease.

The C7700MC also features a Memory LockTM white light leaver on the colour head which removes the filters from the light path and re sets them without altering their original value, helping you to achieve pin sharp focussing without any fuss.
