    It probably won't develop the paper backing on 120 films, either. Ask me how I know that.

    It also won't develop images from rolls of film run through a camera backwards ...

    paper developer will develop your film though, but good luck predicting the right time or being happy with the results.

    You also can't shortcut the E6 process by combining the Colour dev, the Blx and clearing solutions in the Jobo tube. I had my 4 year old son helping me that day.:sad:
