I need some advices on choosing the right developing equipment. I have reat lots of topics here which are quite useful but at the end I end up quite confused between the different techniques diy-s and wide range of options. I think I am close to the solution, but feel now a bit lost...
I almost bought a jobo CPE-2 which I thought could be ok with a 2509n reel and a drum for c41 4x5 developing. I thought not the expert drum but a "regular" as I read many of you could get good results. Thanks Kevin he told me I should not buy a CPE, rather a CPA or CPP.
Now what I know for sure:
- I would develop about 4 shots/week this would be mainly a hobby besides my 3d archviz professional work, so this is why I think I wont need pro stuff.
- for me a cpp with an expert drum would be too costy...
- I think I can live with just good quality, I wont need supergood (if I need I can bring the film to a lab, but it is quite far). but I would happily do the efforts at home.
- I am not afraid of diy if it works...
Is there a "right" solution for me, or I should forget about it and bring them all the time to the lab or have to buy a cpp?
Any advices are highly welcome!
((and sorry for starting a new topic on this, probably I should get along with the existing ones but hope you dont mind... somewhere I read there is no problem with asking the same questions time by time as it keeps the forum lively. ))
