Camera Advertsements: Chromega Color Head (1960)
Chromega (1960)

Would you put that on your enlarger? It looks like something out of Dr. Frankenstein's lab.

I actually had one of these. It was quite a beast. Two big old lamps to generate the light needed. You could almost see the lights in the rest of the house dim when you fired this baby up.

The big problem was that it used acetate (plastic) filters which can warp when they get hot and fade as they age (guess how I know this?). True dichoric filters use crystals and they keep their color properties as they age.
