    I have a fair amount of Konica Pro160 220 and a koni Omega Rapid M camera sitting around because the local sources for processing have dried up so I' interested in processing myself even if that means making it into B&W I have tanks and 120 reels at the least I would need 220 reels if tank processing is even feasable.

    Thanks

    It's feasible even easy to develop C41 in a tank. I use the Tetenal 1L kit which I've had great success with over 30+ films some as old as 1980's VR200 that turned out OK.
    I have instructions here:

    The only real issue is keeping the tank at 38°C which I do by water bath and fish tank heater for the 3-15sec.

    You can also use the Rollei kit which is the true C41 process separating the bleach and fix. I've been on the same chemicals since September and they still produce beautiful negatives!

    Or FujiHunt kit.

    Or Kodak chemicals, which are sold as a kit by Photographer's Formulary.

    just a water bath and fish tank heater is sufficient temp. control ?
