    Mine arrived the other day ! Almost ready to shoot my first few sheets of film (I was about to say rolls :P ).
    Quick question though. How are these in 5 reel tanks ? I nabbed one off the auction site a few weeks back, but it does seem a tad tall !

    It should be fine. Tell you what to do. Wrap a rubber band around the spindle above the film holder so it doesn't slip when you invert it. There's supposed to be a clip that goes around the spindle, but these often go missing and that's no great loss. After a while they don't grip so well. The rubber band trick works every time. There's no need to fill the tank more than necessary.

    If you have the white circular holder put it around the light trap to keep the processor at the bottom. If you don't have it, use a rubber band; double it over a few times and roll it down the light trap tube after you have the processor on it.

    In fact, I suspect you can load the holder onto the light trap and secure it in room light, then just load the film in the dark. It's easy-peezy to load.

    So what if you have airspace above the film. It's no different than using a 5 reel tank to develop only 3 reels of 35mm.

    Thanks for the feed back !
    I'll try the rubber band thing. Sounds better than putting empty reels on the top, which just means I have more wet reels waiting to dry, hence unusable

    Used mine yesterday for the first time, loaded in a Calumet changing tent no problem. As someone said above it's easy to tell if the film isn't in the correct slot. With gentle inversions the film sheets stayed in their slots throughout the processing and the negatives came out well with no signs of uneven development. What I like about it its the use of the Paterson tank which is a familiar piece of kit and fills and empties easily.

    Morgan,
    Any plans for a 5x7 version? If you could figure it out I think you'd do well as the only other option out there is the now discontinued 5x7 combiplan. In the last ten years I've seen only two come up on ebay and they went for hundreds of dollars.

    Its tough.

    At best you'd only get 4 sheets in.

    The extra inch makes so much difference.

    I'm looking into it.

    Cheers,

    Morgan.

    Hello Morgan,
    What about the 5x7 version if you make use of the bigger Paterson 5 reels tank ?
    I for one would be greatly interrested in a jig to process 13x18/5x7 film in a Paterson tank. It will be an alternative to the Jobo expert tanks...
    Keep studying it, please !

    Processing "only" four sheets of 13x18 in a Paterson would be a great thing!
