Well, I know there are a lot of threads on this, but I would like some ideas on what I can do to make it easier. Somebody somewhere maybe has the solution to the issues I have.
I got an 8x10" Cibachrome tank for free yesterday and I did some tests. The reason is because I want to develop at least 2 5x7" sheets at a time, and sitting in the dark gets kind of boring.
So, I used what I had on hand. Rodinal 5 ml in 295 ml water, getting a total of 300 ml), stuck two sheets lengthwise along the inside of the drum. First time I did it with the emulsion side out and second time with it facing the drum wall. Processed for 10 minutes, constant agitation, rolling it in the sink.
Negatives came out okayish. Rodinal isn't the best for this I guess and I am going to try Xtol next. The two problems are that the sheets move and that I am unsure if the total volume is too much?
Does anyone use Cibachrome drums for this and if so, what sort of modifications have you done to it to ensure the sheets won't move?
Should I give up the Cibachrome and get something else?
