    you can develop your own slide film without a darkroom and without much in term of equipment but it's going to cost you more than a lab would charge you.

    the above is probably talking about the initial cost of the jobo. I shoot a lot so It was worth it to me. It has paid for itself many times over. I have the basic set up. A jobo cpe2 not a whole lot to it. Yes I shoot 120. I have a darkroom but its for black and white work.

    I process my film in steel tanks. You can process 2 120 rolls per liter or 10 rolls per $50 kit, more if you double or triple use the chemistry. The process is very long however. I find it easiest to maintain a water bath at the necessary 102 degrees F and then heat the chemistry by double boiling it over my gas stove. At optimal pace it still takes an hour or so. It's good if you want to dedicate more time and less money (like for a photo student) but less good if you just want to photograph things and get the pictures, like more advanced phtographers.

    10 rolls per liter? is that using the kodak kit?, i can get much more than that out of the kodak kit, its 58.00, i find the best value is 220 film, same amount of chemistry and double the images.
