Re: [Rollei] OT: B&W Development- JOBO Advice?

A lot depends on the volume you expect to process.  Back when I was 
doing a lot of black and white film work I made the investment in a 
Jobo ATL-1000.  That was more than ten years ago and it is still going 
strong, although used less today than in the past.  It produces 
absolutely consistent negatives with minimal hassle.  I used to have a 
CPA-2, but I sold it because I just found it too much hassle to run.
