      Comments about Paterson 4 x 5 Sheet Film Developing Tank with Reel (Black):

      If you're used to developing with the the patterson universal tanks for other formats then mod54 is for you! When I migrated to 4x5 format from 35mm 3 years ago, the only budget (~$100) daylight tank available was the HP Combi Plan 4 x 5". HP Combi Plan 4 x 5" got the job done but the learning curve was a little steeper coming from 35mm. (I know this is a review of mod54 but I wanted to give you the full perspective of how it compares to an alternative product).

      Several complaints I had for the HP Combi :
      1) funneling and draining chemicals took at least 1min, a minute too long for consistent developing
      2) having to twist the air valve every time you want to empty or fill the tank
      3) tank leaked even when sealed properly when agitating

      With the mod54 all these complaints were addressed, filling and emptying the tank with chemicals is just as if you're developing 3x35mm film. The only difference is loading the film and it loads "loosely" but when agitating with the "Patterson stick" in the circular motion, the film doesn't pop out. I highly recommend mod54 if you are coming from 35mm background
