well i really do want to get into film developing and was wondering if this would be a good enlarger to start off with. I only want to print 8x10s so if anyone has this or has used it please let me know how well it works and if it worth it. it is a decent price for $310 i would get: Beseler Cadet II Black & White 35mm Film Enlarger with Lens & Negative Carrier #3502, with Darkroom Kit #6757 the darkroom kit includes: The Beseler Developing Outfit is an excellent complement to Cadet II or Printmaker enlargers. The 23 piece kit consists of all the essentials to develop film and make prints. Includes film tank with reel, 2 film clips, safelight bulb, timer, three 8" x 10" trays, three print tongs, three 32 oz. bottles, easel, thermometer, funnel, beaker, squeegee, stirring rod, printing guide and a package of BesFile 35mm Archival Storage pages. so i guess if i hear some good things about it ill invest into starting a darkroom! yay!
