Why a Leitz enlarger? Leitz enlargers are the finest enlargers made. These older ones are precision machined metal enlargers that would would be prohibitively expensive to manufacture today. The Leitz 35mm enlarger condensers rest on top of the negative, eliminating contrast degrading light bouncing around in the air space between negative and condenser. The precision machined metal castings of the Leitz enlarger insure that your negative is in perfect alignment every time. Leitz enlargers do not need alignment; their design guarantees it. Leitz enlargers are the fastest operating enlargers made. Leitz enlargers retain their resale value because their utility and aesthetics are timeless. They are not making these precision machines today. The newer Leitz Focomat V35 was just a less-expensive-to-build plastic substitute that I do not bother with.
Color heads for Leitz enlargers: Leitz did not make a color head for their enlargers previous to the V-35. Leitz did offer adapters for some 3rd party manufacturer's color heads. Some Focomat enlargers came with filter drawers and were labeled color enlargers. All Leitz enlargers listed below may be used as color enlargers by placing filters inside the lamphouse above the condenser. Optically clear filters may be used underneath the lens.
LEITZ Ic 35mm ENLARGERS
The Leitz Focomat Ic has been the standard of the industry for decades. The enlarger is autofocus with Leitz 50mm lenses and most other 50mm lenses as well. The Ic was often found in newspaper darkrooms, where speed of operation was of utmost importance. I 1st discovered the Ic in a newspaper darkroom that had Beseler and Omega enlargers as well, but the Ic was everyone's 1st choice. Although some Ic enlargers came with taller columns and larger baseboards, all that I have in stock have 32" tall columns and 16X20" baseboards. Most Ic baseboards have easel clamping hardware for use with Leitz autofocus height easels. A copy of a Leitz instruction manual is included with your Ic enlarger.
Leitz Focomat 1c Color. A working illuminated magnification scale is on the left of the column. A working on/off switch is on the left side of the baseboard. A standard full frame 35mm negative carrier is included. A 50mm F4.5 Leitz focotar lens, lens extension tube, and red filter are included. A helical focusing stop is included for the default in-focus position. The 8X10 Leitz easel has been sold; a full complement of easel locking hardware is included. The red filter has been sold. The baseboard mounted switch is working. 32" column, 16X20" oak baseboard. $1300.
Leitz Focomat 1c Color. A non working illuminated magnification scale is on the left of the column. A timer socket is on the right side of the column. A working on/off switch is on the left side of the baseboard. A standard full frame 35mm negative carrier is included. A 50mm F4.5 Leitz focotar lens, lens extension tube, and red filter are included. A helical focusing stop is included for the default in-focus position. The 8X10 Leitz easel has been sold; a full complement of easel locking hardware is included. The baseboard mounted switch is working. $1300.
Leitz Focomat Ic. This has been my personal enlarger for many years. I prefer the small natural oak baseboard and short column for the sake of compactness. Although the model with the large baseboard and tall column is worth more on the market, it is not worth more to you if you do not have the space for it or the need for it. I also like the color head for the sake of the dial in filtration for variable contrast B&W printing. This enlarger utilizes the Leitz condenser and provides a quality of light that is virtually identical to that of a standard Leitz lamphead. 32" column, 16X20" oak baseboard, negative carrier, lens extension tube, no lens (Virtually any 50mm Leica screw mount lens will work with it. I have enlarging lenses available separately. You may buy it with one of my personal empirically tested enlarging lenses.), with Cosar Mornick #395 80W 30V dichroic color head, convection cooled--no remote blower needed, with regulated power supply, uses readily available ELB quartz halogen bulb with built-in reflector, instructions. This head replaces both the top and bottom halves of the Leitz lamphouse, and is solidly attached in the same way the Leitz lamphouse was attached, with a retaining ring. This color head and an adapter for a different model Mornick color head are available separately; see below under 35mm Leitz enlarger accessories. A conventional Leitz lamphouse is listed below. $1000
Leitz Focomat 1c Color. An extensive outift with some rare accessories including a Wallner color head. This Ic belongs to someone in Alaska. It is currently in Alaska. It will be shipped to you from Alaska. If you are in Alaska you have a definite shipping cost advantage. You will deal directly with the owner. I am merely advertising it for the owner. e-mail to owner
LEITZ VALOY II 35mm ENLARGERS
Valoy II enlargers are simple, simply wonderful that is! Manual focus. Helical focus mount; no bellows to go bad. Quickly raise the head by squeezing the spring loaded hand grip or slowly adjust the height with a knob. In-line switch on the power cord. Baseboard about 15X18". 32" column height. The Valoy II enlarger is the only Leitz enlarger that came with an Anti-Newtonring condenser. The Valoy II enlarger was also available with a clear condenser. A copy of a Leitz instruction manual is included with your Valoy II enlarger.
Black Leitz Valoy II with perfectly clear glass condenser. Included is a vintage Osram short neck 75W enlarging bulb. Full frame 35mm negative carrier included. $900.
Late dark grey Leitz Valoy II with Anti-Newtonring condenser. Included is a vintage Osram short neck 75W enlarging bulb. Full frame 35mm negative carrier included. $1100.
LEITZ VALOY 35mm ENLARGER and accessories
The Valoy enlargers have a similarly designed condenser lamphouse as the later Valoy II and Ic enlargers and will make an image of equal quality. Adjustable height bulb socket just like on the 1c. Manual helical focus mount with no bellows to go bad just like on the Valoy II. Adjust the height by loosening a thumbscrew, moving the head and locking the thumbscrew. Baseboard mounted switch. Baseboard about 15X18". 32" column height. The baseboard has dovetails built-in that accept clamps to hold Leitz easels. Both the clamps and the easels are difficult to find. Ordinary easels work just fine on the baseboard. If you are on a budget, seriously consider a Valoy enlarger.
Leitz Valoy enlarger. A negative carrier is not included with this enlarger. Negative carriers listed below. $100.
Leitz clamps to hold old style easels on Leitz enlargers (Valoy, 1a, 1b); not for Valoy II, Focomat 1c, 2a or 2c. Illustrated on the above Valoy baseboard. $50.
Leitz spacer for Leitz enlargers (Valoy, 1a, 1b); not for Valoy II, Focomat 1c, 2a or 2c, $25. This spaces the head at a given height to make prints of a specific size. It is designed to be used together with a Leitz 8X10 easel to provide full frame images. It is made of felt covered spring steel and snaps on and off the enlarger column; lower your head to rest upon it.
Leitz ventilator and spacer for Leitz enlargers (Valoy, 1a, 1b); not for Valoy II, Focomat 1c, 2a or 2c, $50. These early enlargers were designed to be used with 75W bulbs, not higher wattage bulbs. Add this ventilator and spacer and you can use 150W and 250W bulbs in these enlargers.
Leitz Valoy head. Condenser included. The above spacer and ventilator fits this head. Negative carrier not included. A negative carrier to fit this head is listed above. $50.
Leitz 1b baseboard, top delaminating, dovetail channels filled with wood putty, switch missing, feet dried out, but at least the mounting hole is properly sized and located and it is otherwise solid, put a piece of oak veneer or Formica on it and it'll serve you well, 15.5X17.5", $25, or $30 with a new set of rubber feet
Leitz 1b 32mm diameter column, 32" tall, includes cast base with retaining nut that clamps column to baseboard, will work for Valoy, will not fit Valoy II, Ex, $75
LENSES AND EXTENSION TUBES for LEITZ ENLARGERS
Leitz 50mm F4.5 Leitz Focotar. There is a matchead size spot of fungus on the outside edge of the rear element that will not affect the performance when stopped down to f8, which is where you want to print with these lenses. Otherwise clean. $100. I have another one with about 2mm of haze around the perimeter of the lens that will not affect the performance when stopped down to f8. $75.
Leitz 50mm F3.5 Leitz Elmar lens. Some cleaning scratches. Performance will be little affected. $50.
Leitz DMUOO 17672 Summicron adapter and extention tube. Adapts Summicron camera lens to Leitz enlarger or Visoflex. Leitz recommends the Summicron for large enlargments. $100.
Leitz 17675 standard Leica screw mount extention tube required on the 1c enlarger for use with most all 50mm Leica screw mount enlarging lenses from the Leitz Focotar to the Nikon El Nikkor. If memory serves me correctly, this is also called DOORX. $75.
ANTI-NEWTONRING accessories for LEITZ ENLARGERS
Leitz anti-Newtonring filter with spacer. This slips over the bottom of the condenser and rests upon the film with no air space between. Leitz anti-Newtonring glass is the finest quality. The spacer is required for the Leitz 1c only; it goes underneath the condenser inside the well that the condenser slips down into from above. The spacer is the thickness of the filter glass and allows the condenser with the filter to properly align with the film atop the negative carrier. The spacer is often not with the filter. $300 or $275 without the spacer.
Leitz anti-Newtonring spacer and film mask for 1c or Valoy II. This slips over the bottom of the condenser keeping the film from contacting the condenser with a minimum of space between. Shown here on a Valoy II clear condenser. With this item you may print without Newton rings with a clear condenser lens. RARE. $300.
35mm LEITZ ENLARGER NEGATIVE CARRIERS
Single sheet glass negative carrier. For those occasions when you want absolute film flatness. The condenser rests upon the film that rests upon the glass in this carrier. The window in this carrier is square. Masking tape has been applied to the bottom of the glass blocking stray light from a 35mm negative. $100.
The elusive 35mm full frame negative carrier. Leitz carriers allow printing of 35mm full frame from most Leitz negatives, at least, but with very little extra room. You have to very precisely position your negatives in a Leitz carrier. I make them from other carriers. As you can see, mine have a comfortable amount of room around the perimeter + rounded corners with a 1/64" radius. I milled out the carrier and blackened the brass window edges. As you can see, the end result looks factory made. Either the half frame or the robot carrier listed below would be an appropriate carrier to use for this purpose. $150 for the labor plus the price of the carrier. I can use your carrier.
FLAT HALF FRAME 35MM CARRIER. 18X24mm window. Note the missing film guide pin right rear. I have the pin; it will be included with the carrier, but not attached. RARE. $150.
ROBOT CAMERAS (and others) SQUARE FORMAT 24X24mm 35MM CARRIER. Note the shorter film guide pins; this is what is required for use with older Valoy enlargers like the one listed above. This carrier will fit the 1c and Valoy II as well. This would be an excellent choice for a GLENNVIEW custom full frame carrier. If you buy it for that purpose, I will knock $50 off the price. RARE. $150.
12X17MM CARRIER. For 16mm film, perhaps. The one still sealed in plastic, labeled 17517, has shorter film guide pins; this is what is required for use with older Valoy enlargers like the one listed above. This carrier will fit the 1c and Valoy II as well. Your choice, $100
Leitz double glass negative carriers for 1c, your choice, $100. These are typically used in conjunction with the Leitz perspective control hardware, but may be used as your standard carrier. The top carrier is is 53mm wide by 161mm long by 3.7mm thick. The bottom carrier is is 36mm wide by 120mm long by 2.7mm thick. One of each available with clean glass.
EASELS for LEITZ ENLARGERS
The best features of the Leitz easels are the perfect autofocus height for the Leitz enlarger, the ability to lock the easel in position on the baseboard and the guarantee that you will be able to fit the easel onto the baseboard and make the print you want without the easel's design getting in the way of the column or not sitting flat on the baseboard. You say you want a 4-bladed easel. Leitz enlargers are 4-bladed easels. Adjustable borders on the left and on the top of the easels + wide adjustable blades make for 4-bladed easels. Most other easels also work well on a Leitz enlarger. The very popular Saunders Omega easels work well on Leitz enlargers. I am partial to the Kodak easel with its felt covered base because it is gentle on the Leitz hardwood baseboard.
Leitz 12X16" easel, for virtually any enlarger, with dovetail grooves on bottom that work with the locking hardware on many Leitz enlargers. Adjustable width borders on 4 sides up to about 3". UNCOMMON. $300. .
Leitz 4-BLADED 18X24cm or 7.375X9.375" METAL easel, for virtually any enlarger, with dovetail grooves on bottom that work with the locking hardware on the enlarger baseboards of many Leitz enlargers. The white surface of this easel is a thin sheet of plastic that rests upon a waffle faced metal surface. In several spots the thin plastic has been pushed into the hollows in the underneath metal surface. This does not affect the performance of the easel. Your paper and your grain focuser sit flat on the easel. This is one of the few Leitz metal easels and the only one in this size that I have ever seen. It has metric scales; it was probably made for the German market. RARE. $350.
11X14 Kodak easel, 2 blades plus .25" to .75" adjustable border on the sides. .75" height; add .25" high feet to raise to 1" autofocus height. Felt base is easy on your fine wood baseboard. Felt base and weight of the easel also provide enough grip to keep it in place without the need for the hold down hardware. Spring tension hold-open feature will not fail ike the pneumatic ones will. This easel doesn't require much room behind it, so it will work on enlargers that do not have room for 4-bladed easels like the Leitz Valoy II. There are threaded holes on the base of these easels to accept tilting easel supports for perspective correction. $125
Wallet size locking easel for Leitz enlargers. You will not find this anywhere else. A GLENNVIEW product. Decades ago I was photographing sorority girls, graduating nurses classes, etc. I would make wallet size prints and mount them all on a large board with the name of the organization; the end result was called a composite. This easel has a dovetail groove in the base and may be locked down on many Leitz enlargers. Locking down such a small and lightweight easel is essential. Leitz autofocus height. $65.
35mm LEITZ ENLARGER ACCESSORIES
New Osram 75 Watt enlarging bulbs, 2 available, $15 each. Additional bulbs are special order. Minimum order of 6 bulbs.
New Osram 150 Watt enlarging bulbs. Out of stock. Special order only. Minimum order of 6 bulbs. $15 each.
Vintage Osram 75 Watt enlarging bulbs. I have no way of knowing if they are used or not. All function well. 2 available, $50 each.
Leitz 1c head shell. Late model 3-wire heat resistant wire and endplug. Socket wire and endplug complete and in great condition. This late model version never had a rubber grommet at the top of the adjustable height bulb tube to go bad; it simply has a funnel like taper to the wire entrance hole. I have different endplugs if needed. The top half of this may be used on a Valoy II to provide bulb height positioning. Although the Valoy II has adjustment of the bulb socket in the horizontal plane, it does not have adjustable bulb height as does the Focomat 1c or the older Valoy. Modern enlarging bulbs are longer than those made to work with the Valoy II. Using a modern enlarging bulb on a Valloy II will give less even illumination. One photo shows an original bulb on the left and a modern bulb on the right. The original Osram bulb was 4.29" in length. New Osram bulbs are 4.68" long. One solution to the problem is to use a Leitz 1c head top half on the Valloy II. I have included a picture of a 1c head top half on a Valoy II enlarger that a customer sent me. I found a reference to using a Ic head top half on a Valoy II in a 1958 Valoy II instruction book--albeit for the purpose of point light source printing with the Valoy II. I will show you the results with different bulbs and different heads when I find the time. Rarely offered separate from enlarger. $200.
Mornick Dichroic color head, Model 395, 80W, 30V (ELB bulb) with voltage stabilized power supply, with Leitz adapter. There are 200 units of yellow, 170 units of majenta, 170 units of cyan filtration. This head replaces both the top and bottom halves of the Leitz lamphouse, and is solidly attached in the same way the Leitz lamphouse was attached, with a retaining ring. Convection cooled--no remote blower needed. This color head utilizes the Leitz condenser and provides a quality of light that is virtually identical to that of a standard Leitz lamphead, but with dial in filtration. Illustrated on a Leitz 1c enlarger; the enlarger and color head are available together and are listed above. The color head is also available separately for $650.
COSAR MORNICK ADAPTOR, adapts Cosar Mornick colorheads to Leitz 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b, 2c chassis. The color head light pipe slips down into the adapter and the adapter slips into the bottom half of the Leitz lamphouse. This is a copy of the Mornick adapter, but a lot better made. $100
Leitz 1c filter holder with special shoulder screw. Replaces red filter and the red filter retaining screw. Accepts 2.5" square or 67mm square or round filters. $OLD. I list it for your information.
Leitz 1c condenser retaining spring and lock ring. $80.
Leitz 1c enlarger easel locking lever. NEW. This is often missing. People who do not intend to use the Leitz easel often remove the easel locking lever because it is in their way. Knowing this, I bought the last one that Leitz had in stock. $150.
Leitz enlarger alignment plates. These go between the column and the baseboard. Sometimes you will find that someone may have tightened the column down too much and unevenly so that the column is pulled into the wood baseboard unevenly causing misalignment. These thin plates correct that problem. For the 1c, the plates are supplied with a replacement column head-rest-pin that takes into accout the increased distance of the head from the baseboard. For Leitz 1c, $75. For Leitz Valloy II, $60. The one on the left is for the Valloy II. The one one the right is for the 1c; the socket head screw with the thumb nut replace the column rest pin to space the head slightly higher for proper autofocus spacing and operation. A GLENNVIEW product. These are now black anodized for better appearance and performance.
Leitz enlarger wrenches. These are original equipment with Leitz enlargers. The 14mm and 10mm combination is for the 1c. The 14mm and 13mm combination is for the 2c and 2a. Your choice, $20.
6X9cm LEITZ ENLARGERS
Both the Leitz Focomat IIc and IIa enlargers I have in stock are imcomplete, so I will part them out. Both enlargers are nearly complete and are available altogether. Neither enlarger has a condenser.
Leitz Focomat IIa, 6X9.5cm autofocus enlarger. The major differences between the IIa and the IIc arevisible in the 2nd photo: IIa lenses are on a maually operated turret and the cam follower is manually repositioned. 95mm F4.5 Focotar, 50mm F3.5 Elmar original equipment factory coated lenses, swing-out red filter, 32" tall column, Leitz ~21X27" large oak baseboard, universal glass negative carrier for all formats, space for simple masks beneath, instructions for 2c, baseboard imperfect--but serviceable (about 2% of veneer missing at rear corner), bellows OK, newly rewired, some pitting of column and some other chrome plated parts (these chrome parts have been cleaned and waxed), negative carrier glasses slightly imperfect--but serviceable (I do have some replacement glasses listed below), lenses slightly scratched, without easel locking hardware. The condenser in this enlarger has been replaced with a variable density diffusion disk, a GLENNVIEW product, available nowhere else, and also available separately in below listing. The variable density evens out the illumination just as does a condenser. Enlarger manufacturers moved from condenser illumination to diffusion heads with the advent of color. The GLENNVIEW variable density diffusion disk will give you the same performance as a diffusion head. $500. I am willing to sell parts from this enlarger. Let me know what parts you want.
Leitz Focomat IIc, 6X9.5cm autofocus condenser enlarger. No condenser. No color filter drawer. No Bowden cable. No magnification indicator. No lenses. No inner helicals. Negative carriers listed separately. Baseboard listed separately. What remains is the column, the main body with the parallellogram raising and lower system, the head shell with outer helical mounts. I am willing to sell parts from this enlarger. Let me know what parts you want.
6X9cm LEITZ ENLARGER ACCESSORIES
Leitz Focomat IIc top half of lamphouse. The IIc lamphead is taller than any others. This one has a porcelain socket on an extended shaft. In the photos, the shaft is fully raised. This extra tall lamphead would be good for point light source printing, where precise placement of the lamp is required--oftentimes higher than usual. In the 3rd image, the IIc lamphouse is beside a 1c lamphouse. The IIc lamphouse will fit the Ic enlarger, as well as the IIa and the Valoy II enlargers. Note that the top of the lamphouse with the 3 adjusting screws is grey in color; it was replaced after Leitz changed the color of the IIc. The lampcord is not installed yet. I will install a lamcord at no charge to fit your enlarger. $250
LIGHT BALANCING DIFFUSION DISK for 2a or 2c. Thicker in the center, simply replace your condensers with this. Two sides are cut off to allow the disk to sit in the bottom of the condenser housing. Are you a machinist? Try machining a thin sheet of plastic. You will find it is not worth your time to learn how. I have sold these to Europe's largest photo equipment distributor. I never thought I would be selling a machined product to the Germans. Expect 1-2 stops less light ouput with this diffusion disk. This light balancing diffusion disk is a GLENNVIEW product, available nowhere else, $100.
RED GLASS FILTER in METAL FRAME for LEITZ IIa. This is from a Leitz Focomat IIa. The overall length is 102mm. $100 without screw or $135 with screw.

LEITZ GLASSLESS 35mm INSERT for LEITZ IIc CARRIER. German silver plated brass. Bottom and inside edges of opening painted black. This replaces the glass on the bottom of the standard 6X9 glass carrier. The glass is left on the top side of the carrrier. The top glass may be replaced with a custom made glassless insert. Film guides ground off. $150.
Osram 75 Watt enlarging bulbs, $15 each, 4 for $50, 6 for $60.
Osram 150 Watt enlarging bulbs, $15 each, 4 for $50, 6 for $60.
COSAR MORNICK ADAPTOR, adapts Cosar Mornick colorheads to Leitz 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b, 2c chassis. The color head light pipe slips down into the adapter and the adapter slips into the bottom half of the Leitz lamphouse. This is a copy of the Mornick adapter, but a lot better made. $100
Glassless inserts for any format for your Leitz IIc carrier, inserts are black anodized Aluminum, will fit your 6X9 Leitz IIc carrier, you specify the dimensions of the opening, or you may send me your negative for sizing, want it oversize to allow printing of the full negative?--whatever you want, custom made by GLENNVIEW, $250
Glassless inserts for any format for your Leitz IIa carrier, inserts are black anodized Aluminum, will fit your 6X9 Leitz IIa carrier, you specify the dimensions of the opening, or you may send me your negative for sizing, want it oversize to allow printing of the full negative?--whatever you want, custom made by GLENNVIEW, $300

You will need longer bolts for use with the 1c or Valoy II. See photo of 6X9 IIc above to see one of these baseboards. The photo below of the undrilled baseboard appears yellowish because it is reflecting the yellow background.
The LEITZ REPROVIT IIa is the best copy camera Leitz made. Most convenient to operate; focusing is done by projecting grid onto copy--copy lights go on automatically and lens aperture is stopped down when camera is slid into position.
LEITZ REPROVIT IIa copy camera, for use with M-series cameras, maximum area copied 18X27" with 50mm F4.5 Leitz Focotar (lens extra), focoslide, focusing magnifier, and right angle light pipe for illuminating copy area and focusing with projection lamp built into head.

Leitz Valoy II copy stand adapted to accept any camera with a 1/4-20TPI camera screw socket. 32" column. The Valoy II rail rider is designed to accept the enlarger head and other vintage accessories. In the 1st illustration you see an original configuration--a screwmount camera body mounted on a visoflex bellows assembly. What makes it so great is the fast squeeze and adjust handle + the fine focus adjusting knob. The compact size is nice too. And you may use the column as an enlarger with the addition of a Valoy II head, which I have available. The light arms are easily adjusted and they stay put once adjusted. With the arms adjusted to give shading as you see fit, the stand makes for a great animation stand for 2 or 3 dimensional art. The baseboard is an optional extra to make it more affordable. $300
