Reliable and affordable daylight tank.

This is a great tank at a great price. I've been using it for about a year with no problems at all. I use the adjustable reel mostly for 120, but occasionally for 35mm as well. The product feels very plasticy, but is really very hard. One of my favorite things about this tank is that liquids bead off the exterior, making filling very easy even without a funnel, cleaning is a breeze too. It's also completely light tight.

This is a great tank at a great price. I've been using it for about a year with no problems at all. I use the adjustable reel mostly for 120, but occasionally for 35mm as well.

I've never had any problems with light leaks, etc, but I usually try to keep it in subdued light just to be safe. I originally bought this tank thinking it would be a good starting point, but I can't see any reason to ever any other tank!

Poorly Constructed

This tank is flimsy and broke on me almost immediately. The method of agitation is garbage.

Not worth the money

By

from Colorado  -  Photo Enthusiast

I wish I had heeded the reviews of some others and not bought this thing. Here's why: The agitator was wider than the diameter of the hole in the cover; I had to force it to get it down to the point where it will engage the octagon in the hub of the reel (very poor design). At that point you cannot turn it because the agitator is wedged into the hole. I had to file it down considerably just to get it into the hole in the cover with enough play so that it will turn. I decided to keep it only because I don't do much film work; just kind of playing around with B&W. Besides, I don't want to throw good money after bad and have to pay for sending it back. To anyone who plans to do serious film developing: spend the money and buy a good one. I would give it a rating of zero stars if I could. No fault of Adorama - they provide great service in a timely manner. I like doing business with them.

Ive been using tanks since the beginning (1972)and its worth the extra money not to be dissapointed. I do my share of business with Adorama and happy 99% of the time and thats good and will continue to buy from them. They are fast when processing your order. This was my first return.

slipped past quality control

By

from Ft. Lauderdale Florida  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This one slipped past the Quality Control inspectors. Apparently the molding process didn't perform as intended. The interior surface of the center hole in the cap and the surfaces of the agitating thermometer are so rough you cannot agitate the film as intended. This particular example of this product is unusable.
