For more than 12 years I’ve been using JOBO rotary processors to develop 35mm thru 4×5 sheet films. With the JOBO, you simply load your film on the proper size reel (in darkness of course), place it into their light tight rotary tube, and you’re ready to process your film under normal lighting conditions.
Recently, I’ve been processing 8×10 sheet films using tray processing in the darkroom, but thanks to the crew at CatLabs in Jamaica Plain, Mass., I can yet again escape the darkroom (and chemical fumes), save precious processing time, and step back into the light.
Their newly designed processing reel can hold three sheets of 8×10 film and can either rotated manually or in the processor. Pre-ordered mine already and can’t wait until it arrives!
