I’ve not had much luck with dev tanks lately.

After my saga with the cracked Paterson tank from eBay, I went for a different kind – 30 quid for a Paterson copy with 5 reels included.

One of the reels was bust, the funnel didn’t lock in properly, and I spent over an hour and a half trying to get the crappy plastic spirals to load the film properly.

It’s being sent back.

Sadly this means that I’m going to have to splash out on brand new reels from Paterson, as well as a new tank for all my multiple-developing needs..

As someone reminded me though (blonde Kirsty from recentish pictures)… I do love film, so to use some crappy tank to develop it in and compromise would be a bit stupid.

Roll on the new tank I say…
