    Saw this on FB today. Jobo news

    http://bit.ly/Hbdlyq

    Great news and I hope they restock replacement motors among other Jobo parts as well.

    Old JOBOs are probably dead or dying in sufficient quantities to make this viable. Always wondered what sales were like the decade before the 2010 shutdown. Good news--especially since it's not April 1.

    Exactly, I had to check the date as well. Curious how much it'll cost. Wonder if Bob's solution to his dying processors are done or is this something he *might* even want to look into

    Well, if the lift is going to be over $400 us, then I'm guessing the cpp3 will be something like $800 to $1000. The money isn't in the CPP3, it's in the accessories though.

    Good "GUESS". That'd be cheap. It'll be quite a bit higher than that I'm afraid, maybe 2x that for starters.

    I am very excited for this.

    I think this just adds to the fact that the film photography market is growing. (Or maybe just my opinion...)

    If it's sub $2000, then I think it *could* be a good long term investment, esp if the motor is an upgrade from the last upgrade

    I don't see this as a sign that the film market is growing but more a response to lab closures=business opportunity. They probably have all the dies and manufacturing tooling needed so it may very well be an easy matter to flip the switch so to speak.

    The good news here is that they are bothering to make a new product. So there must be some demand for it.

    Unfotunately if its $800, $1600 or $2400 is academic to me cause it is out of my price range.

    But if you are using it for business maybe its a no-brainer. IDK.

    But wasn't lack of traffic the reason the labs closed? This really isn't a new product. Cheaper than a Refrema, I guess.

    If it uses upgraded parts, perhaps the parts will be a big seller themselves? (people modifying older designs)

    Obviously, a low price will sell them easier and to more people. I coveted them in my high school / college days when they were new and I was developing a ton of film and couldn't afford one. If it's <$2k for a complete setup, some people might consider one of these instead of their next dslr or L-lens.
