I contacted Phototherm some time ago to enquire as to what the differences are between their older Sidekick, and their current Supersidekick - but have yet to hear back. To the best of my knowledge, no literature regarding the former exists on their website, so I was unsure as to how to go about doing a comparison. The difference between the price of old and the new - at least on the second hand market - is some 400%.
Is the SSK that much better than it's predecessor?
My second question is with regard to chemistry. All sorts (C41, E6, BW). For those that do their own developing - what's your preferred mix?
