    Some time ago, during one of my lazy internet surfing sessions, I came across the potential to develop 8x10 film in a Jobo ATL-1000 (of which I already own and use). Naturally I forget where I found this information.

    I know the ATL is only compatible with standard drums up to 4x5 film and the expert drums that do develop 8x10 film cannot be used with this unit.

    Does somebody know or have figured out a way to do 8x10 sheet film in these units or should I just go with a CPE-2 or CPP-2 when I do make the move to 8x10?

    Cheers,

    David

    Print drum? The 1000 should easily handle an 8x10 print drum. Assuming you don't mind two negatives at a time then that will work fine.

    It can take one sheet but my first test, it ruin it. May try again as CPE (old version, non-plus) can do two using print drum but also has uneven issue.
