    Any special way to load 5x7 sheet film in a JOBO 3010 drum

    I heard the 3010 drum can be used to process (5 sheets of) 5x7 film.
    As it is not designed to load 5x7 film..any special way to place the sheets?
    Do I just place them loose in each cylinder?

    Thanks,

    Serge

    I use the 3010 for 4x10 and it works great. I'd just slip them in along the long side so that the curl is on the short side, unless anyone thinks there's a reason to reverse that?

    this helps though it doesn't answer every question you may have:

    I forget which way, but for 5x7 the film should be flush with the top and bottomed for 4x5 (or vice-versa)...pretty sure the answer is in the above instructions.

    be sure to use enough chemistry

    oops, edit, I thought you wanted to know how to load a 3006 not a 3010.

    5x7 will only fit one way with the curl in the 7 inch length. The problem is the ridge that holds the 4 inch 4x5 will touch the back of the 5x7 (if that is a problem, I don't know).

    PS the tank is only 5 3/4 inch deep and 8 inches round. I do not believe 4x10 inches will work. Perhaps Christopher is mistaken as to the model he uses.

    Yeah, sorry, I have the 3005 & 3010. Can never keep those numbers straight!

    I have been using the 3010 on 5x7 and it has worked fine for me.

    Thanks again for all the feedback. Glad I don't need to purchase another drum to process 5x7.
    I prefer to allocate my funds towards film

    I went through the same decision recently when I started shooting 5x7. I have the 8x10 (3005) and 4x5 3010 expert drums and have used both with excellent results. I was worried that the 3010 would scratch the back of the 5x7 negative but I was completely wrong. 3010 is now my goto tank for 5x7.
