    YAY! 4x5 Daylight tank!

    SWEET! I just, in the mail, got a nice FR Corp. 4x5 adjustable daylight developing tank. Thick plastic. Holds 12 sheets, which is good because I only have 4 carriers at the moment. I am excited.

    Everyone should have one of these.

    It's got this cool double lid system, that acts as a light barrier, and liquid guide that dispenses liquid down the sides rather than across the middle of the film.

    Johnrichard;

    I'm sure you will be happy with your new tank.
    Many Moons ago when I was doing weddings 4 X 5 B&W
    with flashbulbs then strobe I can remember putting many sheets of film through one of these tanks.

    Might I ask what you paid as I have a few to sell and am curious as to the worth.
    Good luck with it.

    I paid $50 after $12 or so shipping. So almost $40 I say.

    Also, I am shooting my cousins wedding (just as a favor) in 4x5 black and white, complete with flashbulbs and Speed Graphic.
    Gonna set f22 at 1/50 or so and shoot away. Old school indeed!

    From the camera store? Remember they did use to make these things.

    I actually bought them at a second hand store. They had a box of "stuff" and in it was a whole box of about 30 #25b bulbs. YAY!

    So now all I need to do is find more!

    I use one of those. Getting agitation right is tricky, though, and I still don't have it down. I got a Yankee tank the other day as part of a lot of ten old cameras and some other junk. Has the film with long edge horizontal instead of vertical. I might give that one a try.

    I use FR Corp 35mm tanks and I think they are the best. They work like a charm.

    I haven't heard of the company or the tank, so I will be interested to hear further news of how you are getting along with the tank. Where did you get it?
