    I'm not sure if I'm supposed to promote my own (non-commercial) content here but I wrote a guide for Fuji Hunt 3 bath E6 using a Jobo CPE2 thinking it might be useful for people who are pondering having a go themselves..

    This was my second go at developing so any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong or how I might get better results would be appreciated..

    I'm not sure about the coffee while processing... Otherwise, I guess you would consider an ATL unit if one became available?

    I know - I should have had a cup of tea really ;-) I will get an ATL at some point but for an initial outlay of £250 I'm up and running for the small volume of transparencies I currently take.

    thanks for making them Tim!

    I watched them this morning before heading out for class! I've been wanting to start processing my own E-6(I'd shoot it in place of color neg if I had the ability to process it myself at the moment). Since I'm a hybrid guy for most of my color work.

    Jobo's are great. One of my darkroom buddies from school got a atl(i think 2300) from a craigslist posting a year or so back for some obscenely low price of $400-$500 with a wall-mounted instant hot water heater(tankless/gasless). He shoots a good bit of 4x5(well, he's from a well-to-do family, lets just leave it at that), and he has no problem going through 30-50 sheets of developing in a nights run.

    lucky bum IMO.

    thanks!

    Hey, Tim. An option would be to add them to the videos here on APUG. I don't know if you have to be a subscriber or not but they would DEFINITELY be a great asset to have access to here on APUG.

    "To wash, pour half of a wash bottle (125ml) into the tank and wash for about a minute. Pour this away and repeat with the second half "

    is 300 mL of water enough for one wash?
