Well I finally decided to take the plunge and buy an 8x10 camera. I have been using the 1500 and 2500 series tanks on the Jobo manual rollers with great success. I even fill up the tanks completely with Rodinal and use the inversion method. Since Rodinal is inexpensive and a compensating developer, it works out fine. I then switch to the rotation method for stop bath, fixer and hypo clear. Can this be done with the 3005 Expert tank? I don't mind the manual rolling because I am not doing it daily. I would much rather develop film in light rather than fooling with trays in the dark (been there done that). I really notice a difference when using the inversion method with Rodinal and would like to stick with it.....I LOVE RODINAL!
If I have to resort to a used JOBO processing machine, I guess I will buy one used. I saw a question on Ebay regarding the serial number being higher than 22000. Does anyone know what this is about?
Please advise....thanks in advance.
