    Hi,

    I am very new in darkroom work. There is a very good offer for a Nova print processor. Wonder if anyone here has any experience with this print processor.

    What is the maximum print size it can process?

    Is it suitable for colour, cibachrome and B&W processing?

    Where can I download an operations manual?

    Thanks for your help.

    YOu can get info on the Jobo site. It all depends on what model the processor is. Some do only RC paper, some are B/W only.

    I use a Nova 12x16 inch fiber processor.
    Very happy with it.
    What do you need to know.

    Thanks for your offer. Am only taking delivery of the print processor next week. So far I only have a preliminary idea on how it works.

    Will let you know if I need further help.

    No problem.
    Just think of it as verticle trays.
    Also chemicals will last weeks and weeks in the Nova, particulary if mixed with distilled water. I usually do my fiber stuff just after I've drained cleaned and re-filled it and then contiue to use it for weeks after to do my 10x8 RC stuff. Often it's the build up of silver in the dev slot that makes me drain it down. It should pay for itself in the long run.

    If you got the fiber one doing fiber prints is a breeze once you get the hang of the holder. If you have one of the bigger quads you can still do fiber but may have to use two paper clips and take great care when moving from one slot to the next.

    Have fun.

    Hi,

    I have taken delivery of the Nova print processor...it is a 16"x 12". The whole set up looks ok. I have yet to set it up.

    This unit comes together with a Meopta 6a enlarger with a 3 color head and a 50mm rodagon 2.8 lens and an assortment of accessories that is required for the darkroom.

    Got it at below USD350 from another enthusiast who have no use for it.

    Do you think it is a reasonable price?
