    Peter, the roller assembly pulls out. It just clips in there. Reach in and pull out those little roller arms. Then gently pop out the rollers from the arms. Press the rollers back into the roller...

    Re: CPE2+ and 2500 Series Drum

    OK, here's my CPE2+ with the small drum:

    I had to get help with this, myself. The Jobo CPE2+ can run the larger drum, but it's a bit of a strain on the machine.

    Re: CPE2+ and 2500 Series Drum

    The way to run the CPE2+ and the 2500 drum is take the extenders out completely, and just clip the rollers themselves to the roller block. Then it will fit snugly in the bottom, and there's no...

  9. Re: Which affordable 4x5 (or6x9?) camera should I buy?

    #1, It's hard to go wrong with anything you purchase in LF. It takes a really bad lens to screw up the image on LF film. The lenses are simpler to design than the smaller formats, so the image is...

    It isn't that slow. You still need to develop it in the "dark" under a safelight. You'll also still need stop, as that paper won't stop developing immediately when you take it out of the bath.

    Re: is there a way to get grain in 4x5?

    Yeah, with roll film. But not with sheet film.

    Yes, I know that Delta 3200 doesn't come in 4x5 format. That's why there's roll film backs, or a person can tape the film into a holder.
