    a lot of guys develop in trays, not long trays but deep ones. That's how I was taught to do it. So you hold each end of the film in your hands and run it back and forth in the soup. The tray only needs to be about a foot square and 8 - 10 inches deep. Pays to have about 5 litres of developer in the tray.

    Surprisingly development is very even this way, a check with a desitometer proves it.

    The downside is you're restricted to a length of film you can hold outstretched arm to arm. Really helps being 6 foot + if you want to handle a decent length.

    There are a lot of alternatives, spool to spool aerial processors work.

    very interesting... Im of the "mini" panoramic ilk, merely a 7x17. But I think it would be interesting to have a Panoramic Forum. One for all the panoramic formats, 4x10, 5x12, 7x17, 8x20, 617, xpan, cirkut, etc. could be potentially a really interesting thing. If sean is not interested in doing it as a subforum on here then Im more than willing to create a simple forum for it. I already have one setup on my server.


    EDIT: I just noticed it got done... Im slow.

    Hey Matt. Actually Sean set just such a forum up last evening. And yes, it isn't just for Cirkut folk but any format that is about 2.5:1 or more. Should be fun. There's already quite a bit of discussion going on. Maybe I'll get Sean to move this thread over.

    Don't feel bad. You can always do a tryptich with your mini.

    Alex, I'm with you: I don't have a Cirkut of my own; but I'm damn tempted to plunk down the $2500 for The #10 Cirkut for sale... Next Door!

    By the way, the best I can do for panorama photography is a well-travelled Horizon 202; but one photo from it made it into RaceFax Magazine

    Cheers!
