    Re: Open tray b&w develop process help.

    I use 5x7 trays to develop my sheet film. Total volume of solution (Developer + water) I use is about 800/900 mL. I agitate via shuffle method by Ansel Adams with emulsion side facing up, and not a single scratch. I have some tutorial videos that I saved if you would like.

    Developer capacity is normally given as a number of "rolls".

    A roll is anything that can be proofed on a single 8x10 sheet of paper, so one 8x10 sheet of film,
    or four 4x5 films, or one 35mm 36-exp roll, or one 120 roll. You get the idea.

    I normally double the volume of working developer for tray development, which I do for sheet film.

    If you believe you can, or you believe you can't... you're right.

    That will be helpful with the tutorial video. Thanks.
