JOBO 3010 : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I use a JOBO 2500 tank on a Besler motor base for rotary developement of my film. It works good and I seldom have any problems. I am thinking about buying a 3010 drum. Every thing I read says it is better development. Jobo says you must use a processor with this drum. My questions are ,can I use the 3010 drum with my Besler motor base for rotary development? Will I truly get a better negative? What is the foot pump for? I don't see a lid on the drum in the picture I have. What keeps the chemicals in when its on its side? Is it worth the expense of 200+ dollars to change?

what film format are you using?

The JOBO 3000 series called "Expert Drum" is so heavy and huge. So I don't think it's possible to use with your Beseler. The Expert Drum requires larger JOBO processor like CPA-2 or CPP-2. You cannot use drums with CPE-2. The foot pump is needed when you open the drum lid.

I have been using a 3005 drum on the Beseler moter base, and it works fine. The chemicals do not spill out if there is less than 1500ml in the tank
