    How Many Ways to Process ANY Film: List Them

    I'll start, I have not done it but have read of newsmen processing 35mm inside the can without removing the film first.

    Monobath...

    Here is a discussion of it, https://www.photo.net/discuss/thread...ssette.341735/

    I roll 12 exposure rolls... but only because LF has made it hard to shoot more than that

    Can't wait to process...

    I have processed 4X5 sheet film in one ZipLock under safe light

    Put film in, add developer, agitate for a while, change to stop, then change to fix

    Not my idea, I think SergieR suggested it

    I was scratching X-Ray film

    No scratches!

    I open tanks for years for sheet film. Now I have aquired a couple Jobo machines, obvious solution for color. I use the Jobo for everything these days, however I still think tanks (daylight for roll film) with replenishment is the best overall processing method.
    I have Kodak Rapid Color Processors model 11 and 16k. Built in temperature control, these were used for every color print process and large transparent print film. I've never fooled with trying it but I'm confident these could be used for any sheet film up to 16 x 20 amazing machines. Lots faster through put than a Jobo with tubes for color printing.

    The gold standard for any film processing IMHO are tanks with gaseous burst agitation

    Send the film to the photo lab?

    for Sheets:

    Open trays - shuffling sheets
    Open trays - with a 'slosher' insert
    Tanks
    Vertical tanks with nitrogen agitation
    Vertical tanks - stand processing

    Buckets, any size, this youtube is an interesting and humorous way,

    Hand-Processing Super 8 film in Caffenol Step-by-Step (Expired Kodachrome 40)

    I think Garry Winogrand also did this

    Garry DID NOT PROCESS a lot of his film! At least 6500 rolls...
