Kickstarter funding unsuccessful, yet we are still charging ahead, with a few caveats* meaning features list will need to be trimmed so that we can still produce a machine that can perform well. 

We are also looking at launching an open source project for the CP800 code name Farbung, see :
What does it means? It means if you like you can make your own machine, with all the source code provided yet we understood some still like a fully assembled and test machine so we will still be selling an official machine of the CP800 via FilmNeverDie and only the officially sold machine will comes with the 5 years warranty, all the open sourced self made machine will not be warranted. 

Now you can pre-order it directly here, delivery Nov 2022 ( unless you managed to ordered the Beta Early Bird unit).

$300 Shipping included in the price, normal retail price $3,800.

Introducing the Compact Processor 800 (CP800) - our bold new fully automated rotary drum film processor. Effortless black & white, colour, slide & motion picture processing at your fingertips.


Large capacity processing drum. Bigger is better! Efficiently process 8x 135 or 4x 120 rolls at a time. 2x piece semicylinder configuration locks together forming a complete seal from light leaking in & chemistry leaking out. Reel blanks available to minimise chemistry consumption during smaller batches. PVC/3D print construction.

5x chemistry/1x water channel(s). Versatile for black & white, C41 negative, E6 positive & ECN-2 motion picture processes. Run your chemistry with flexibility using 12x (6x inlet 6x outlet) indexed hoses. Option to salvage or dump exhausted/one-shot chemistry. Removable 2L & 5L chemistry storage receptacles.

Variable push/pull timing. Any stock. Any ISO. Variety of customisable presets.
Character LCD display. D-pad control panel (because touch screens don't work with wet gloves on).

Modular design. Adaptable for any space. Available as a bench top processor module.
  • Processor module: 620 x 265 x 210mm
Heavyweight construction. Durability goes a long way. CP800's rigid sheet metal construction is designed to withstand a lifetime of wear & tear. New model will be using stainless steel exterior to combat rusting.

Programmable temperature control. Don’t sweat the small stuff. CP800's thermometer & programmable heater accurately tempers bath water & chemistry solution +/- 0.2°.  **
** feature won't be available, at the moment we just recommend and include a sous vide machine for them control externally. 

Processing level detector. Alerts user when there is insufficient chemistry for processing.

Trouble-free motorised agitation. 3x programmable speeds. Ensures the film is submerged in chemistry for consistent & reliable results.

Low maintenance. 1min rinse cycle betweens steps, prevents cross contamination improving chemistry shelf life. Save from tedious maintenance schedules.

Compatible with Paterson, AP & Jobo 1500 reels.

Deep cycle. 
Ability to cycle the entire 2L or 5L volume of chemistry continuously whilst processing. Increases solution capacity & regulates processing drum temperature. **

**feature won't be available for now. we just recommend one shot chemistry for now for better performance.
