The all-new CPP3 is a semi-automatic film and print processor. The CPP3 offers continuous rotation agitation as well as temperature-controlled process, producing consistent, repeatable results. Repeatability and dependability are the name of the game in this new world in which pro labs are closing down and where slow turnaround leads to poor results. The time-proven Jobo rotation processing system allows for full and precise control of every aspect of the process and industry-standard quality results for virtually any photochemical process.
Continuing the tried and tested design of the successful CPP2, the CPP3 is fully backwards compatible with all existing Jobo drums and reels and is thus capable of processing 35mm and 120 roll film, sheet film of 4X5, 5X7, 8X10, and 11X14, and prints up to 20X24.
In addition to temperature and rotation-speed control, the CPP3 features a built-in, fully programmable process timer, dimmable LCD panel, and cold-water solenoid inlet to cool down the process when the ambient temperature is higher than the process temperature.
JOBO USA recommends using a lift for all processors and processing systems, because it helps create a more accurate and repeatable process and offers many other benefits:
The Analogue Photographer differentiates himself from all digital work. There is no better way to create truly unique pictures, other than by hand-crafted art-work.
Also, schools and colleges who teach photography need reliable equipment to give their students hands-on experience of “real photography”
The freelance photographer likes to be independent and relies on fast processing results.
The analogue photographer has the choice to fine-tune his processing and printing by using a combination of either film or print processing solutions.
The fine art photographer cares for
JOBO Processor CPP-3 #4083 semi-automates all film and print processing for daylight operation.
All available colour and B/W films on the market can be processed at home, using any chemistry.
Roll films 135, 120; Sheet films 4 x 5 or 8 x 10 inches; Prints up to 20×24″ /50 x 60 cm.
Technology of Rotary Processing
Everything you need for consistent, repeatable results are very precisely controlled through
This One-Shot Processing method renders highest consistency in processing. This technology was developed by JOBO and applied by thousands of professional and semiprofessional photographers around the world, because the processing results meet the requirements of the film and chemical manufacturers. In fact, JOBO Processors have been employed by film manufacturers in the USA, Germany and Asia for the control of their own film-emulsions.
A versatile processing system to do flexible, creative work with any available formula.
The JOBO Processor CPP-3 is placed on a solid, levelled table, filled with water from the tap. Mixed processing solutions are held in one litre bottles then positioned in the water-jacket of the processor.
After switching on the heater, working temperature of processing solutions will be ready for use after about 40 min., depending on conditions.
The inbuilt timer comes pre-programmed for standard film processes like E-6, C41 and B/W and can easily be customized by the operator.
The film tank or print drum is connected via a magnetic drive and rotates back and in the same water-jacket, which also temperature controls the one litre chemical bottles.
Solutions are used in a minimum quantity and are drained after use because the rotating tank and drum requires a minimum amount of solution, as is needed for the chemical process. However each solution can be recovered separately.
Once the exposed material is loaded in one of the JOBO Tanks or Drums, (this must be done in complete darkness) they are placed on the Processor, which immediately rotates them in the temperature controlled water-bath.
For changing working solutions, the JOBO Tank or Drum is disconnected from the magnetic drive, as the motor continues to rotate and they can be poured out and re-filled through the tank lid.
By adding JOBO Lift #4072 this procedure can be simplified.
Working solutions are filled in through a wide funnel of the Lift and drained easily by operating a lever, which raises the film tank or print drum for emptying the solutions. This provides exact timing of each process step. Large size prints and films are soaked evenly.
For controlling processing times, the built-in programmable timer sounds an audible alarm, when chemical solutions need to be replaced.
After the final wash, the developing material needs to be taken out of the film tank or print drum for drying out of the processor.
The JOBO tank series 1500 and 2500 is a modular system. Tank capacities can be enlarged with an extension module and each inversion tank can be modified for rotary processing on the bottom with magnet item 1504 for use on CPP-3. When used with the Lift, the lid of the tank needs to be equipped with a cog, item 1505.
Tank system 1500 is based on narrow gauged reels to reduce chemistry consumption.
Tank system 2500 uses wider gauged reels and accepts sheet film reels as well.
Expert drums are for sheet films only and always come with cog lid for use on the Lift.
For print processing we recommend Drum system 3000 but the older style 2800 can also be used.
JOBO CPP-3 is compatible with all JOBO Tanks of series 1500, 2500 and all JOBO Drums of series 2800 and 3000. For use in rotation they must be equipped with magnet # 1504 or cog # 1505.
The CPE3 is an all new machine, made in Germany, based on the time tested and tried design of the CPE2+, featuring stronger motor and improved electronic control boards, a more robust housing and and a new style lift.
The CPE3 is a compact (15X26 inch foot print) and highly capable processor for any traditional process – film or paper. It can handle films from 35mm all the way up to 8X10 (with the CatLABS CL81) and prints up to 12X16.
It is suitable for any type of process: BW or color – C41/E-6/RA-4. The CPE3 is a simple and reliable way to get the best possible results for processing film or prints.
