    In fact I was given boxes of E6 chemicals (replenishers, starters, etc.) from a lab up in New Hampshire that went digital a couple years ago for FREE. So ever since them, my per roll developing costs for E6 has been right around $0. I know, not a typical scenario, but still.

    Also, I think the biggest reward is not having to wait for the film to return. That was really the most painful thing about shipping film off to Dwayne's... the 2-week or so turnaround
    I've never seen any of those machines how big are they and is the $1,000 new or used price?

    How often do you process? Do you sometimes do just one roll or save up till you have a certain number of rolls. I'm completely new to any kind of home machine so "speak" slowly... Lol

    The bigger ones are pretty big, but the CPP2 I use can be placed on my kitchen counter:

    1,000 will get you a CPP2 in good condition if you can shop around. And yes sometimes I'll do just one roll using 240ml of chemicals, but since I can reliably develop 4 rolls of 120 with that much chemicals, I usually save up. Which never takes too long for me

    I have a CPE2, which I believe to be the same size as a CPP2. It is about the same size as two toaster ovens set end to end.

    Oh, whatever, there is a tape measure on the bookcase. It is roughly 26"x12" and the main body is 8" tall, the lift end gets to 17".

    I got mine as a "do you want that too" in a craig's list buy. Also got a drymount press. It was a happy dance day.

    The CPE2 is about half the size of the CPP2.

    We have an informational article about the different Jobo processors here:
    http://www.catlabs.info/how-to-choos...jobo-processor

    You can get in at way under a 1000$ including everything you need, and chemistry to last a LONG time and MANY rolls.

    Another great thing about Jobo (or all home processing) is that you can ran as little as one roll with no waste of chemistry, or run 10 rolls at once to save time.

    Champion chemistry (C-41 only at this time), though sold in bulk only, has a cost of under 50 cents per roll when used as one shot, and will do more as a replenished system.

    C-41 chemistry is historically cheaper then E-6, mostly because of the historical demand and market share, though the price difference used to be fairly small or un-noticeable, once pro photographers stopped shooting film (most shot E-6) that marker shrank much faster then the less pro oriented market of C-41 negatives, causing a larger price discrepancy.

    Oh that makes sense.

    Well right now I have $30 in my bank account living paycheck to paycheck (hoping my check comes Monday and not Thursday) so even "under $1000" seems like a lot but I recognize how cheap that is. Man, I'm drooling at your price calculations. Wish I had the scratch or something I don't want I could trade for...

    Don't need no Jobo. Hot water in the sink basin and a plastic tank will do just fine.

    You obviously didn't actually read the thread and just wanted to chime in... It's about cost savings of having to run 30 rolls in a day by hand because that's the only way to not lose money from the $35 re-usable e-6 home kits, otherwise if you only do a few rolls, the stuff goes bad... You missed that point obviously.

    Yes because (haha) when you have over 2000 posts in 8 months (haha) you never just want to "chime in"! (haha ... LOL)

    Get over yourself.

    I do chime in a ton... But I always read the thread before I post.
