Begin developing your own black and white film with the Film Processing Starter Kit from Ilford and Paterson. Comprising everything you need, this kit includes an Ilford SIMPLICITY Starter Pack of developing chemicals, a 35mm cassette opener, a Paterson Universal Developing Tank with two reels, a thermometer, three 22 oz / 600mL graduates, a mixing stirrer, and two sets of film drying clips.
An indispensable tool for at-home film processing, the 35mm Film Cassette Opener from Ilford is a simple tool designed to make the process of opening 35mm film cartridges easier. Its dedicated design opens the top of the cassette, making it faster to remove the film prior to loading it onto a reel just before development.
Containing all of the necessary chemistry for developing black and white film, the SIMPLICITY Starter Pack from Ilford contains pre-measured portions of four concentrated chemicals to produce working solutions for processing one roll of 120 or two rolls of 35mm film in a two-reel, 600mL developing tank.
ILFOSOL 3 is characterized by its ability to produce fine grain results with high sharpness and full film speed, and it is particularly well-suited for use with medium-speed films.
ILFOSTOP is a low odor, citric acid-based stop bath that stops the development process and helps to prolong the life and activity of the fixer solution. It is recommended to ensure accurate development times.
RAPID FIXER is a rapid-acting, non-hardening fixer that should not be used with any hardeners.
ILFOTOL is a non-ionic wetting agent that aids in rapid, even drying of film, helps to prevent water spots from forming, and promotes anti-static qualities.
Optimized for developing up to two rolls of film, this Paterson Super System 4 Universal Developing Tank features a versatile and compact design that holds up to two 35mm rolls of film or a single 120/220 roll at a time.

The Paterson Color Thermometer is designed for color processing due to its accuracy, but can be used with all photographic processes.
This glass spirit thermometer is 12" (30cm) long, and has dual temperature scales from 15°C to 65°C and from 60°F to 130°F.
Accurate to + 0.14°C (+ 0.25°F); Recommended for all color processes.
The well-known Paterson Graduates are made from transparent polystyrene moulded under strictly controlled conditions to ensure total accuracy.
They are of a cylindrical laboratory design giving uniform widely separated markings, calibrated in metric, Imperial and US scales, which are very easy to read.
They are resistant to most photographic chemicals, and come in five sizes, each with accurate, easy to read markings.
The Paterson Chemical Stirrer is an ergonomically designed mixer that is specially shaped for efficient stirring and incorporates a particle crusher.
It is invaluable when making up solutions either from liquid concentrates or from dry powdered chemicals.
The Paterson Film Clip Set comprises of one weighted clip and one unweighted. The weighted clip is used at the bottom of the film to hold it straight while drying.
Stainless steel pins grip the film securely to ensure that the film is held tightly while drying.
