I use this to process 35mm film and Super 8 film. It works perfect for 35mm and gets the job done with super 8. The larger size allows me to process a full 50 ft roll of super 8 without any breaks in the footage. Just be sure to agitate a lot!
I've used this at my school many times and has proven very useful when processing many rolls at once. The only down side is when full it can be very heavy and hard to keep a grip on when wet. But that aside it great and plan on getting my own 8reel tank soon.
I have been using this tank since 1998, developing more than 4 rolls every week. It works wonderfully. Film is very easy to load. The canisters can be adjusted to develop 220 film, which is a hassle in normal 220 aluminum reels. One important observation: It is of utmost importance to buy the accompanying washing hose.
