Dude,

Thanks for the heads up Paul. There's nothing I can do at the moment until I print those messages out, but, in the meantime, please feel free to send info to: karl [dot] borowski [at] case [dot] edu

You know what to do with the brackets.

At present I don't do my ECN-2 mind you, nor do I intend to start. There was a machine I was looking at, but the owner ended up scrapping it, despite my repeated phone calls to him.

I really don't know why. I was hoping to set it up to do a single batch run of VNF-1 and then I was going to convert it to ECP-2.

There is a LOT that can go wrong with processing machines, so I still intend to outlab my negatives when I'm processing my film, but there's a definite advantage to doing the process yourself especially for pushes and pulls.

Keep in mind that if the film ever becomes jammed, due to power outage, or something else, you can loose several thousand feet, with really nothing to do to stop the process except trying to unjam it in the dark (a dismal activity). Fortunately I have a mechanical arm film processor for C-41, which, when it malfunctions, enables me to reach in with my hands and fix it. Continuous feed processors don't afford this luxury, which is why I am hesitant with doing my own or other people's negatives.

You can loose money and beat yourself up as much as you want when you loose a print, but there ain't no fixin' it when it's the negative.
