General Ilford Portable Enlarger Information

In the BJPA for 1950 (advertised in Amateur Photographer November 1949) Ilford illustrated a Portable Enlarger. It folded down into a wooden box for storage & transportation. It was made by Micro Precision Products (MPP) from around 1947 until 1952. All early models were badged as MPP but from 1949 some were sold as Ilford enlargers, with an ILFORD LIMITED, LONDON, nameplate sticker on their lamp housing as well as red, embossed, lettering stating 'MPP Precision Products Ltd, Kingston on Thames, London', just above the negative carrier (see image below, right).

Ilford described the portable enlarger thus: "A precision enlarger for 35mm negatives which has been designed for portability. It folds into a well-finished hardwood box, size 16½"x14"x6" and weighs 17lbs. It may be erected in three separate positions according to the size of enlargement desired. In the position illustrated, enlargements may be made up to 10"x12". (Other positions are show in the diagram).

The normal lens equipment is the Ross Resolux 5cm f3.5, but an adapter will take the 2in Wray or Dallmeyer f3.5 lenses if preferred. Focussing is not automatic but easily and accurately done. The negative carrier is glassless and cannot damage the negative."
Plano-convex condenser

Grey stove-enamel finish
