    The clear ones I pass on to a uni archeology prof who is a pal. he uses them to store all sorts of small bits that are found at field investigations. He says they are so much easier to label once in the can.

    A friend of mine is a science teacher, and asked for the 35mm holders. They make volcanoes. ???

    Tiny volcanoes! We used to use soup cans for volcanoes in science class.

    +1 I use them for all of my LF 4x5 lenses, front and back, and then use a strip of double-sided velcro to wrap around the lens/lensboard to hold them on.

    I'm building an ark. I need either really tiny animals(2 ea.) or a crapload of canisters.

    This sounds interesting. Presumably it has to be very short( how many frames/inches?) as it would curl against itself inside the can or does the dev liquid keep the film from sticking to itself?

    Presumably you have to fill the can with dev in the dark or pre-fill it and place the film in it in the dark?

    What happens at the end of dev? The emptying and filling with stop has again to be done in the dark?

    Thanks

    The cannisters hold about 3.5" of film. Longer strips of film might overlap and prevent developer from completely reaching the film. They do have to be loaded in the dark, but this seems to be no great problem. Loading the film into the cannister and then adding the developer may be less a problem than trying to put the film into a cannister which already contains the developer. After the developer is dumped and the stopping completed, the stop bath can be replaced by the fix in very dim light. I would use an ordinary kitchen timer to time the development in total darkness rather turn the light on after loading the film and off before dumping the developer.

    Thanks for the explanation, Jim. In a normal tank most will use inversion agitation. If you don't put the lid on the can I presume that swirling the dev in the can while open and upright achieves the same effect.

    Certainly for a clip test your "trick" uses a lot less dev.

    I used to make rockets when I was younger. These days I aimlessly juggle with them
