    Dear all,

    I have a Paterson Thermo-Drum print processor which can dev up to 12x16. I'd like to use it for 10x8 film but i am not sure how much chems to use and how often to rotate. Also, i think the film will stick to the inside of the tube - has anyone made any modifications to address this? Any advice would be gratefully received!

    I also have an unused orbital processor which i plan to try (although I've heard some have had problems with uneven development and streaking). I've used a dip and dunk tank in the past which works well but requires 5litres of each chemical - i don't shoot that much!
