[rollei_list] Re: Jobo rotary processor

Thor,

I assume the more automatic Jobo processors (the ones that dump and feed the
chemistry in at the appropriate times) would work this way.  However, I
don't think it takes me ever more than a half hour to process B&W and that's
if I am using a developer requiring a long development time.  The set-up
takes about as long as the actual development process and I don't know that
the processor is going to help you with that - you will have to load the
chemistry and then clean the processor and purge the lines afterwards, etc.
There is nothing to cleaning a few beakers and the drum.

Hi Rob,

thanks for the info.

One reason I am attracted to the Jobo is that I (think I) can find  
good settings for my film, developer and exposure, then set it and  
forget it, letting it run automatically while I do other things.

As it is I don't really have time to develop film (the local lab does  
it for me), but I could load reels in a tank and let it run while I'm  
working with other stuff.

Would it work in this way?
