Reel (sic) easy!

    I also use this tank to develop 9x12cm and 5x4" sheets one or two at a time.

    I also have a Loadamat 20 which is like anm Agfa Rondinax tank. Daylight loading of the film as well as adding and draining chemistry. I've not really used it yet, though it may be worth sacrificing a roll.

    I haven't got a 35mm tank yet (the Gepe only has a 120 reel).
    it was called(dont know if it still exists) hp-combina.
    film had to be clamped in the center and the loader helped.
    only for manual rotating or on a rotating base. no 220 if i am correct. only 35mm and 120. they have/had also a 4/5-tank-system.

    I've spotted a few eBay auctions for Kodak tanks that sound like this (for 35mm film); the claim is that they can be loaded in daylight. They look like a cross between a Watson or Alden bulk loader and a developing tank. I've never actually seen one in person, though. Out of curiosity, I just checked on eBay and found this auction for one. (Standard disclaimer: I'm unaffiliated with the seller.)
