    Processing 2x3 (6x9 cm) sheet film

    For those of you who do it, how do you do it? I'm getting really tired of taco-developing, and I really dislike tray developing.

    I've done it in trays, with deep tanks and hangers, and with the Nikor sheet film tank. They all work.

    Jobo 2518 reels will do 2 1/4 X 3 1/4 sheets. The 2509 does 6x9 sheets. So it depends on the exact size you are shooting.

    Modified an old Ansco tank with a groove to hold the movable flange at the right spot.

    I do the same thing. If you use plastic reels, take an adjustable reel and set it at the point where the sheets will slide into the reel easily. Glue the reel at that point. You will have to work the sheets in to the reel since the ratcheting action won't work when the reel is glued. It's not a problem.

    I can get six sheets in to the reel just by working them in with my fingers. Pop it in the tank, and process like roll film.

    I have done it in 5x7 and 4x5 trays, and also borrowed my friend's Combi Plan tank, which you can get from Freestyle. I liked the tank, though it does use a lot of solution and take a while to pour. The film turned out fine, though.

    Here's a faster way to fill it:

    It works well, but I seldom bother to use this method since I prefer longer developing times, like with Rodinal 1+100, and never get uneven developed negs.

    I use 5x7 trays. Someone on another thread was asking about where to find 4x5 trays. Where did you find those?
