    I am considering using PMK to develop 4x5 negatives and would like a
    recommendation on which would be the best process when using PMK to develop those negatives. I have seen a cradle made by Summitek and also am aware of the tanks and hangers that many use. From what I have read PMK is a one time use product and I wonder which system would use the least developer and still do a good job.

    Thanks

    I use a Summitek cradle and it works great but it uses quite a bit of chemistry.

    I also use BTZS type ABS plastic tubes and they (and Jobo or similar tanks) use the least amount of chemistry.
