    They don’t list a 10x12” film as such, just a 9.45x12” film. I guess I found this odd because I thought 10x12” was the standard size. Then I also see paper doesn’t come in full 10x12”...

  32. Re: Pyrocat-HD: How long a dev time before using 2 baths?

    The issue is load capacity of the Jobo motor. 1L is max recommended load with the 3005 drum.
