    Jobo love

    This has probably been discussed ad nauseam here but I wanted to add my .02 dollars anyway.

    I recently purchased a Jobo CPE processor to do black and white film. It is a dream. After initial testing I have been running large batches of film using T-Max developer with replenishment and it is great. I was a bit concerned when I got it that the agitation would be too intense and cause surge. It doesn't. I can put on a movie, get the developer to temp and just process 'til the cows come home. I can do 7 rolls of 35mm or 8 rolls of 120 at a time. (This is not a misprint, the reels can hold two rolls of 120 at once.)

    I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone who does black-and-white film at home or for a small studio. I have never been much into doing color. Until now I did black-and-white by hand. I will never go back. Once you get past the quirks of the Jobo you will love it.

    I had actually slowed down in shooting for fun. Now I can go out and shoot to my hearts content and know I am not going to be spending a week in the darkroom. I did 17 rolls a few days ago without even breaking a sweat.
    Pity the dyslexic agnostic insomniac who lies awake night after night wondering if there is a dog.

    I agree! It's great to read & respond on APUG while streaming Classical musical to the 25 RPM beat of my Jobo! It doesn't get better, well...almost !!

    Cheers,

    Are you talking about the lid on an expert drum? I almost knocked myself out a few weeks back using the jobo pump to remove a top.

    I seriously cant see anyother way I would want to process film. The Jobo is awesome.

    normally i steer away from threads with titles like "jobo love" since it borders on the freakish side of photonerdism. but after seeing gary's setup, i can see why people like them so much. i was developing film in a combi-plan tank in a hotel room and wished i had a bit more automated setup. this is after i recently moved up in the world from processing one sheet at a time in trays.

    Don't beat me up guys- but I have not gotten a Jobo because I use very minimal agitation on my 4X5 negs- don't they agitate constantly?
    Has anyone noticed a difference due to this or is it a non issue for you guys? Again, not dissing the Jobo, just curious...
