Re: [Rollei] More OT Jobo advice


I am in the tropics, but have AC. I will probably have to chill some water 
and then bring it up to the desired range. I doubt that I will ever mess 
with E-6 or C41 (all of my past color work has been Cibachrome, but I did 
fool around with Unicolor and Beseler color stuff only to find it lousy in 
results). I'd love to settle on one developer (HC110, XTOL, or D76 
probably) and perfect it.

Thanks for the reply. This helps a lot.
