    220 Roll Film Tanks

    I've been souping my own film since the 1960's, but just 35mm, 127, 120. Now have a medium format camera that takes 220 film.

    Are there larger tanks and reels for the twice as long film? Thanks,

    /Clay

    Not processed 220 for some years, but I had a (Paterson or Johnson, probably?) tank with an adjustable reel which was big enough to take either a 220 film or a 36 exp 35mm.

    I used to develop my TXP-320 rolls in Paterson tanks with good result. Today you will have t use C-41 or E6 films and chemistry as all B&W films in 220 size are gone. There may be some leftover TXP-320 rolls in 220 size but they are probably to old and to expensive. Sad , but that's the way it is.

    The Paterson and Jobo 2xxx spirals will take a 220 length.

    I guess I will either send it to Dwane's, or tape 2 Kodak roll-film aprons together and use my colour print tank to hold it. I have my own

    wet colour darkroom and used the tank for 11x16 Cibrachrome prints. Geez, Kodachrome, Ektachrome, Cibachrome, and now 220 B&W all

    gone! Getting old, ha! Enough to make me coat my own glass plates!

    Best regards,

    /Clay

    Good Morning, Clay,

    Kinderman made a 220 tank and reel--the usual high-quality stuff. I recall that one was advertised for sale here on APUG fairly recently.

    Dear Clay,

    The problem is nobody makes 220 film anymore.

    B&H shows 220 Portra color in stock, I just checked. You really have to want it, it sells for a premium over the cost of two 120 rolls. There's no 220 black-and-white still being manufactured anywhere as far as I know. I wish there were, it would relieve the tyranny of the 10-exposure (for 6x7) roll.

    If you can find one, Nikor made a tank for 220. I believe the tank is the same one used for 4x5, wider than the standard one for 120/35mm, and they made special stainless reels for 220 that fit the larger-diameter tank. I think I still have a couple of those reels. I should probably sell them while it might still be possible.

    You could also send it to Praus Productions in Rochester, NY. That's where I send my E6. He just did some 220 Provia for me a couple of weeks ago, I still have a bunch of past-date rolls in the freezer. He also does C41 and B&W processing.
