    Jobo recommends a minimum developer volume of 210 ml and a maximum of 1000ml for the 3006 drum. I've developed 4x5 film in my 3010 drum using 400ml of developer when I only had a few sheets of film to develop.

    Have you ever tried only using a half liter of chems? I have read were people say a half liter works just fine and some recommend a full liter--it seams 50/50.

    Thank you MM
    I use 1 liter of D-76 1:1 following Kodak's minimum 8 ounces of D-76/8x10 equivalent. 1 liter is enough developer for 8 sheets of 4x5 film. So far, I have processed 6 sheets in 3 tubes in the Jobo 3010. The next time I have 8 sheets I will try 1 sheet in each of the extra tubes. If I were using a different developer, like Xtol, I could reduce the volume.

    Are you talking about the 3006 or the 3010 drum ?

    With the 3006, I used 400ml and it worked out fine. The lable on mine says something like 210ml - 450ml for 6 sheets of either 4x5 or 5x7. Does the 3010 use up to 1 liter?

    Somewhere on the internet there is a chart from Jobo. They list 1 liter as the maximum for the 3010. That's probably based on weight & their motor and tank support. The 3010 will hold more that that, about 1.5 liters, in the horizontal position. If somebody wanted to use the 3010 tank for inversion agitation, the total would be closer to 3 liters.
