I believe that the time is slowly coming when the rest of the world outside the USA and Germany, will start looking for something either semi automated, or perhaps fully automated, capable of developing film from 135 through to 8x10" with 135 being the biggest throughput then 4x5" being next with 120 and 8x10" last.

The ability to use Jobo tanks, or an extremely similar set of tanks and maybe Hewes stainless reels for the smaller formats and the Jobo big tanks for the sheet film if so desired.

In short, the biggest market will be for 135, 120 and 4x5" film.

I believe within 5 years my Jobo's will be starting to fail, if not fail before.
