    I use this thermometer to get my c-41 chemistry started and develop my negatives! I use old 2-liter soda bottles with my chemistry, so if I need to get this down into the bottle to test temperature of chemicals, I just tape it to a dowel or a bamboo skewer and dip it down into the bottle to get a proper temp. through the transparent bottles. Even if the bottles I used were opaque, the thermometer holds the reading for a few seconds before dropping... so you can pull out the thermometer and still get an accurate reading.
    Stop wondering... just put it into your cart and buy it!

    The thermometer I got always reads at least 4 degrees lower. When it arrived the internal fluid has a small segment separated at the top and that segment never comes down. After calibrating it in ice and water mixture (32 degree), I found it always reads 4 degrees lower.

    I went to B&H store and finds several new same thermometers on the shelf. I intended to replace the one I have. But I gave up on that idea, because even the brand new ones on the shelf don't agree with each other on the room temperature with difference of several degrees.

          It measures temperature well which is all I need. Mine does have little dots leading up to the temperature it's measuring which, at first, was misleading. With that being said, I haven't had any problems developing film with it in the darkroom. If you need, grab one!

                        I purchased the thermometer for use in black and white film processing. It seems to be highly accurate and quick in responding to temperature changes. It is fragile, but I knew that when I bought it. I actually bought two and promptly dropped one on the hard floor, shattering it all over the place! The thermometer came with a protective case that was not used at the time. Overall, aside from my own butterfingers, I am pleased with the thermometer.

                                  Works. Degree marks are close together and you need to be careful to make sure you are not off by a mark. This is my second Delta and the first reads two degrees lower than this one. The first one was a flat glass model and the numbers and degree marks were easier to read.

                                      I'm very glad I got this thermometer. It's very easy to read and it's a no frills afordable piece that's great for me as a beginner.

                                      I only got a thermometer to err on the side of caution, and I'm glad I did. It seems kind of obvious now, but here in the south the water runs hotter than 68F. If I guessed I might have added hot. Turns out I needed ice. Don't try to guess.

                                      The glass construction feels very solid, but I haven't exactly thrown it against the wall to verify. Short of abuse, I think it will last just fine.

                                        This is a pretty solid thermometer, especially for the price. I mean, no celcius readings, but that's not a big deal for most of us who are just aiming for that ideal 68 F. It's good for tray and short bottle measurements because of its short length. If that's okay with you, I wouldn't hesitate to get this. Its accuracy is quite reasonable as well.

                                              I bought this to use in my darkroom as I am just getting started in developing black and white film. This thermometer was very affordable so I chose this model. It can be submerged in a bucket of water where I keep my chemicals to bring them up to temperature. It is quite precise. Great bang for your buck.

                                                  This is a good basic darkroom thermometer. It reads quickly and accurately. I would recommend this to anyone with a darkroom.

                                                    Accurate enough for me. Nice case it comes in makes me worry(less) about breaking the six incher.

                                                      I use this thermometer to get my c-41 chemistry started and develop my negatives! I use old 2-liter soda bottles with my chemistry, so if I need to get this down into the bottle to test temperature of chemicals, I just tape it to a dowel or a bamboo skewer and dip it down into the bottle to get a proper temp. through the transparent bottles. Even if the bottles I used were opaque, the thermometer holds the reading for a few seconds before dropping... so you can pull out the thermometer and still get an accurate reading.
                                                      Stop wondering... just put it into your cart and buy it!
