Omega Super Chromega C

OMEGA Super Chromega C Dichroic

Lamphouse

Introduced: 1972
Discontinued: 1980

The Super Chromega C Dichroic lamphouse was introduced in 1972 mounted on a new chassis then designated simply as the “C,” but later known as the C67. It provided a medium format version of the Chromega D for use in professional labs. The unusual feature was that filtration adjustment was controlled by sliders rather than dials.

 

It featured a 150 w quartz-halogen lamp, 0-170cc filtration, interchangeable mixing chambers, stabilized external power supply, and covered formats up to 6x7cm. It was only ever fitted to the C67 chassis, and no adapters were provided for other enlargers.

 

Used Advice: This is a professional quality unit and is very reliable, but parts for it have been discontinued for some time, and since this model is relatively rare, it should be checked for completeness and that it’s in good working order.
