The Intrepid Enlarger uses new LED technology, so it can match the results of a traditional enlarger whilst being a fraction of the size and price. It means you can turn pretty much any space no matter how small into a darkroom, and when you are done printing you can pack it all away.
The light source fits to the Intrepid 4x5 Camera in the place of the ground glass (or any 4x5 camera with a Graflok back.) Simply mount the camera onto copy stand/tripod pointing down, add an enlarger lens then you have a fully functional darkroom enlarger.
The LED lights are perfectly calibrated for printing and everything is controlled by the timer. It has the CMY colour balance controls built-in and contrast filters for black and white so you don’t need to use external filters. There is also a built-in safelight for black & white printing.
In the latest generation of hardware, we have introduced more manual controls for the user. It has the option of saving time settings in black/white mode and adjusting the output strength of the light. There is also a wider range for the colour balance controls allowing for more experimentation.
The timer/control unit also has a third mode which allows the light source to be dismounted and used as a backlight for digitising your film with a DSLR or smartphone.
