    I use tupperware type tubs. I can reseal them, they don't take up much room, and they are REALLY cheap. You can even get different color for different chemicals just to jazz things up a bit. Makes people think your really organized LOL. Of course this is a "do it in the dark" procedure using hangers. I can develop a ton of film a lot quicker than the tube people as I don't have to mess around with drying etc. I can also do up to 10 sheets at a time in a pinch, more if I bought bigger tubs.

    I've got one of those, really nice. Only thing is you now are developing your days shoot of 4x5 just like roll film, all the same. Of course I'm pretty ignorant of the finer points of plus and minus development so I'm perfectly happy with it.

    That would work if you were doing multiple batches, but I do good to fill the reel and don't really want to break it down into multiple runs with a partially full tank. I usually don't have much trouble printing the negs anyway so I'm not really worried by it. Maybe one of these days I'll be ambitious enough to shoot that many frames and actually keep track of the SBRs and whatever else, but not today.

    LOL !!!

    I usually use my Nikor 4x5 tank and I am in your corner. "Duh wats N+1? I jus want sumpin ta print."

    Really, if I ever get less lazy and start using a little more science in my developing I certainly wouldn't use the Nikor tank as it is great for doing large batches but not individual processing. I also wonder what the effect of varying the number of sheets would be on developing. One or two sheets still takes the same 1000ml of developer that will also cover 12 sheets. You would have to consider developer exhaustion (or non exhaustion) and the effect of aggitation with fewer sheets.

    I also have a couple of Unicolor drums that work great for two or four sheets and that or even trays would be a much better choice for N+/- stuff.

    well, i'm on my second attempt at getting the silicon in the lid per GreyWolf's suggestion. I'll know later today if it works. and boy, i'm so surprised at the prices those nikor tanks go for...$100??...sheesh.

    I sure wouldn't pay anywhere close to that much for one. It has as many negative as positive points. If you are going to spend that kind of money get a Jobo or several Unicolor tanks.
