I have a JOBO CPP2 rotary processor with a 5 sheet 3005 drum and shoot 8 x 10 an d 5 x 7 sheet film. My film is T Max 100 (5 x 7) and I use TMax RS developer. I also use Tri X (8 x 10) with D 76 developer. JOBO lists various chemical volumes to handle anywhere from one to 5 sheets, depending upon the format.
Has anyone used less than a full 5 sheet run, such as one or two sheets at the v olumes listed and did you have consistent results compared to processing a full five sheets ? I read once where a photographer recommended that when processing less than the full five sheets you should fill the remaining slots with unexpose d film to exhaust the developer. Using less than the full five sheets was not re commended. Seems like a waste of film and chemistry to me, but I wanted to check with others experience on this subject.
Thanks in advance.
