    Thank you.
    I never used mine; so far I do not see the advantage of any daylight-loading tank, not even for travelling. But I would be interested to be proved wrong on this...

    I mean, the additional volume/weight of a changing bag does not count against all the other photo stuff one schlepps around. So why use a daylight-loading tank which in itself is not very economic on volume/film?

    A funny video, but it does seem a bit like a solution in search of a problem. On a critical trip one would carry a changing bag anyway, to cope with any camera or film-winding failures or for loading a 120 film dev-tank or (very usefully) a tank for multiple 135 rolls. Stuffed inside the (dry) tank the bag takes up no room, and yes - I have done it for real.

    While this might be true in this day and age, this tank was designed to do exactly what it does, allow folks to process a roll of film on the spot, with high speed, one step developers. Back then the film and chemistry had basically no cost, and what was important was if you had the image. News room eventually got automated minilab processors for color film, but this is a low fi, go in between that would have meant a first lady had her eyes open or closed for tomorrows early edition cover.


    In any case - its oh so cool - so why not see how it works?

    When the reel halves are apart they take up almost no room. I'd put them in plastic bags among clothing. Keeping the reels in the tank just meant that it was full of air instead of something useful.

    If you use the System 1000 you can stick each reel together in a way that both flanges lie next to each other. If you take off that extra, white clamp you can place both reel pairs on the column that there still will be quite some useful space in the tank.

    The System 1500 reels cannot be put together flange to flange.

    Very interesting. I enjoyed the video and can see where that tank could be of use. I don't know that my work-flow (when it exists) could take advantage of it, but it is nice to see such an option existed. I supposed if I had one roll I wanted to develop on a lazy day, that tank might be great as I'd not have to mess with a bag and other items. If doing more than one roll, I think it would be more efficient to pull out the changing bag and multi-reel tanks.

    I fail to see how one would daylight load and process 120, 220 and 4"x5" film. Something is missing here. I will continue to use a changing room bag.
