      Comments about Yankee Clipper II Roll Film Daylight Developing Tank:

      I recently purchased this item because I was looking for a very inexpensive developing tank. I gave this one a try. Right away, I could tell it was a classic case of "you get what you pay for". The tank label and instructions look like they were done on the fly at a local copy shop. I ran one roll of B+W 35 mm through this. It did the job, but the top of the tank is very leaky. Even when I tried to be careful, developer still went everywhere. It was very messy. There is not really a seal on the cover. Which makes me wonder...if this is a "daylight" tank, why is is so loose? If it leaks liquid so badly, is it really light safe? If you are a beginner who just wants something cheap and simple, this is for you. But I would suggest paying a few extra dollars to get something a bit more sturdy and rugged.

      Comments about Yankee Clipper II Roll Film Daylight Developing Tank:

      I was recently looking for an inexpensive developing tank so I gave this one a try. First of all, I knew right away taking it out of the box that it was fairly low quality. The label and directions looked like they were photocopied in somebody's basement. The reel is also pretty flimsy. Anyway, I gave it a try, developing a roll of 35 mm B+W. It basically did the job, but it was VERY leaky (if it leaks liquid, how can it be a daylight tank?). I doubt it is truly able to keep out all light leaks. The lid is also quite loose. Anyway, if you are a lomographer who doesn't care too much about pro quality negatives, and you have a very low budget, this should be sufficient for you. If you are a bit more discriminating, pay the extra money and get a Paterson tank.

        Comments about Yankee Clipper II Roll Film Daylight Developing Tank:

        I really love that this has the ability to develop a variety of sizes but it's horribly made. The thermometer wasn't even in the clear piece it should have been enclosed in. Loading the film is a pain compared to other reels I've used and the tank leaks. There is also no way to seal it while developing which makes agitation messy. I have developed 3 rolls of film with it though.

        Not at all bad, the one you need for 110

        Comments about Yankee Clipper II Roll Film Daylight Developing Tank:

        I use this tank with the C-41 press kit when developing both 35mm and 110 film. I struggled mightily with the steel reels of my other tank, as I have trouble using the center clip with large hands. Skinny fingers, mind, but I still don't have the space I need. Enter this tank, with an easy to use reel. Very smooth to load in my darkbag, though it isn't machined perfectly. The reel isn't as smooth as the Paterson, and the agitator isn't a perfect fit. That said, I think this one is underrated, especially at this price. For anyone looking to develop 110 film, this is the one you need.
