    No; it is a Leitz Focomat 2c photographic enlarger for negative film. A rather expensive beast in its day - but was sturdy and produced great results; as did, and still does all Leica equipment. Mine will still produce superb 20x16 ins enlargements from fine grain/slow speed film negs. The enlarger is far to good for that cheap Kodak, wonder what cameras the photographer actually used?

    I think the guy must have been right into photography. There was a large format enlarger in the loft and the Durst RCP20 print processor, I used to use one of them myself back in the day. Brought back memories.
