    Anybody try this yet? I am about to pull the plug on paper and chemicals for color printing and this paper may be a way to do it without spending lots up front

    I'd start with expired Supra Endura (Ebay) - it's as good as it gets and even a year out of date and not in the fridge it still prints perfectly.

    Thanks, I will look into that. I did order some Fuji paper before I read your response and do have a few questions if you don't mind. I read Horensteins book on color printing and he says that when using A jobo, developer is used as one shot so it maintain freshness. Is that right? Does not sound right to me. Cheers

    That's generally how people do it with a Jobo, since the solution required is so small with drums. I suppose you could pour a couple ounces from a big jug then pour it back in and treat it like a replenished system, but I don't know why you would. RA4 developer is really cheap anyway.

    Trying to replenish from a simple drum setup would seem to be a recipe for all kinds of inconsistencies and nightmares.

    I agree and given the simplicity, consistency, and low price of RA4 chemicals (partly because you have to buy such large amounts if you use Kodak) I don't see any reason whatsoever to do it. But if someone is really determined, it might be possible.

    I have replenished using a Jobo and had good results (checked with Kodak process control strips). So it can be done. Normally I use a roller transport processor and I think I used a replenishment rate that was about 50% higher than for that with the developer. The only time I use the Jobo is for 20x24 prints, so lots of solution used.

    I don't have the chemicals or Jobo in front of me so I am guessing a little here, but if I mix 4 liters of developer (Arista Kit) and use say 250cc a time in the drum, thats 4 prints per liter, or 16 prints from the entire kit? Are the other chemicals one shot also? I must be missing something here.

    I don't have a Jobo, but in my own 20X24 drums I need only six ounces of chemistry per print, so it's
    hardly worth the risk and hassle of replenishment, let alone even more exposure to the fumes.

    8x10s are usually about 2 ounces. Larger sizes proportionately more. No way would any size I've ever even considered printing take 250ml! That's nearly 10 ounces.

    But I concede the idea may appeal more as print sizes go up.
