    Jobo announces production of new processor

    Someone just sent me the following link. It appears that Jobo may be getting back in the processor business due to increased demand for film. Sorry if this is old news but I didn't find any mention of it after doing a search of APUG. If this is true, it's very encouraging. On the other hand, it's not surprising. From what I understand, Kodak experienced a 20% increase in demand for film in the year or so before they announced they were filing for bankruptcy and their film division was one of their only profitable divisions.

    Now, if just Kodak (or someone else) would bring back the old Kodak 5 liter E6 kits or equivalent. I have actually thought about only shooting b&w since the kit was discontinued. The problem is that I sell more color than b&w.

    Two near identical threads now. Worth merging Mods?

    Sorry about that. As I mentioned, I looked for a similar thread before posting and didn't find one. After reading your response, I searched again and still can't find one. Could you post a link to it? I would like to read the thread.

    BTW, I just went to the Omega Satter site to see if there was any more information but it no longer exists. This is probably old news too but I didn't know about it until today. Does anyone know what the story is with Omega Satter? Just curious.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    It's no joke. I emailed the sales director this morning and he replied with a PDF info sheet and pricing information in GBP.

    Looking at Summer 2012 announcement. Not currently taking pre-orders.

    That's about all I know right now.

    Could be, if the April Fools Prime Directive* was violated. I see nothing mentioned on the Jobo site itself.

    * Prime Directive: It only counts as a joke if it's only posted on April 1st. Anything before or after is unethical.
