One of the best photo investments I made

By

from Oakland, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this changing tent for a photo road trip a few years ago, and it proved it's worth time and again. I was shooting primarily 4x5, which necessitated constant unloading and reloading of the film holders while out on location. This is a very delicate process because of the danger of scratching the film. The changing tent allowed me to move freely without the fumbling involved in a normal dark bag. It was also large enough that I was able to comfortably load and unload 20 to 25 film holders at once. It also folded up neatly (about the size of a large collapsible reflector) and was easily stored in a crowded car. As I moved around for the next couple of years, it allowed me to have a secure (light-tight) loading area when living in homes where it wasn't possible to make a light-tight space. Students, and photographers who do a lot of travel, will benefit the most from it. A few cons of the changing tent are: It is a little confusing to fold down the first couple of times. It is a tight fit to put back in it's bag once folded. The arm holes have a sweatshirt-like material at the opening that makes your arms sweaty and somewhat uncomfortable when working in it for long periods (20+ minutes). It is a bit wide, and may be a little uncomfortable for people with shorter arms to use.

It's very useful for making a dark space for putting film on to a speed reel and into a developing tank. It's not portable at all, but that's not why I bought it.

Questions about this item:

neta l  what size is it?
Larry S  It's about 18x22x18 inches when unfolded. For storage, it's basically flat at 18x22 inches. Very roomy and seems well made, however.... I bought it to load film into developing tanks, but two things about it really annoyed me, and I ended up buying another changing bag to replace it. 1. It doesn't sit flat on a table with an interior flat surface to work with, due to it's slightly pudgy marshmallow shape. 2. The bigger issue -- the deal breaker for me -- is that the arm sleeves are placed in the middle of the sides, rather than at the bottom. So there is no way to comfortably work with smaller objects (like film cassettes and developing reels) sitting on the bottom. You're constantly fighting with those arms to reach down into the interior space. I tried setting it on my lap rather than on a table, I tried standing rather than sitting at the table I was working on, and I tried treating different panels of the changing tent as the bottom. Nothing worked. It's quite possible the changing tent was not designed for what I used it for. If so, it's not the tent's fault; it's mine as the purchaser. If you're looking for something to load film into 4x5 holders, it might work just fine. For loading 35mm film into tanks, it didn't really work for me.
