Paterson PTP125 overview

  • 1Description

The Paterson Changing Bag is an essential piece of equipment that any photographer should keep in a darkroom. It is one of the most simple items to use and can potentially save you from losing a roll of jammed film stuck inside a camera.

Having a changing bag on hand means that a jammed or partly exposed film can be safely removed from the camera and shooting can continue and it will allow a film to be loaded into a developing tank without having to first find a darkroom.
It has a fail-safe double skin with a double zip closure and the comfortable inner lining is specially designed to avoid perspiration in prolonged use.
The Paterson changing bag is small enough to fit into a camera bag, yet large enough to allow a camera back to be fully opened once inside or a film to be loaded into a tank.

Paterson PTP125 reviews

Changing Bag (27.5 x 27.5") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny! I use this bag to load two 120 stainless steel reels along with one 35mm stainless steel reel. Most of the time I'm sitting on my living room floor to load the film. Never a problem having enough room. In fact, I lay everything out inside the bag, zip it up, fold over the flap, insert my hands and arms, and I'm ready to load film. The bag is light tight, material is heavy duty, and there is pleny of room. The bag also holds a crease. I like to tent the bag at the point where I'm loading film and the material stays upright. Other recommendations and affortability made this bag my choice. I'm glad that I read the other reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roomy, quality product I moved up from a smaller changing bag which I found to be too small for loading 120 film into a tank. This bag is huge by comparison and has plenty of room to move things out of the way when working inside of it. The fabric is also stiff enough that it stays put when it is pushed out of the way. (A good thing when you're using scissors!) I like the single zipper with an overlapping flap that's velcroed closed. I feel that this is more light tight than the double zipper system of the old bag. The inner sleeves also provide greater assurance that no light will leak into this bag when you're using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use. Works Well. I used to load my film in a closet, which was uncomfortable, stuffy and too warm. Since I decided to start developing again, I thought I'd try this. I am pleased with this bag. As some reviews stated, it keeps enough space to allow you to easily take your film out,cut the end and roll it and close the container. The only thing I'd add as a caution is to NOT take your hands out of the sleeves if you have already removed the film, but haven't yet place that roll in the tank. The sleeves work well, but when you put them on, then take your arms out again, they can keep enough space for light to expose your film. I haven't had an issue, but I noticed this when I I forgot an item before starting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cloth, not plastic This bag is made of two layers of thick, soft fabric, while most cheap changing bags are made of nylon. Each sleeve has two elastic bands. Pros: Fabric doesn't make me sweat like nylon; makes handling film much easier and more comfortable. Large. Cons: Soft fabric drapes and sags more than nylon--box or frame required to tent the fabric out of my way. Much heavier than nylon bags.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good for the money my bag developed hundreds of tiny pinholes in the outer covering in the last 2 years. The rubber on the inner layer is comming off.It's still light tight because it's double layer. For $ I'll most likely get another one considering the harrison is 5x as much. If you need a bag for life get the harrison, if you are poor and can live with a slightly weird plastic smell and small pinholes, this will do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large and roomy Plenty of room for a Paterson Universal Tank, reel, film and a bandage shear, has rounded ends so it won't poke the bag or cut me. I prefer to cut the tape off the end of the film, although it probably isn't necessary. Some prefer to pull the sleeves up over the arms but If push inside the bag it seems to be easier, at least for me. Over all it's a high quality bag and as long as it's not abused it should last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good. I've had it but a short time and so far it's exactly what I wanted. I looked at one a size smaller. Many reviewers thought it too small. After using this one I can't imagine using the smaller one. This is just right for what I wanted, a bag that would pack small and travel with me on shoots and enable me to reload on site. It feels well constructed. I haven't processed any film loaded inside the bag yet so can't say much more. I bought it to load 4X5 film holders. It created a nice small space where I could separate the film holders and the film box. Because of the bag's thickness I had to occasionally push the top layer up in order to 'feel' the film into the holders. But it was no problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a fan I can load a roll of 120 film in a darkroom on a Paterson reel without a hitch. I bought the bag so that I could change film without needing a dark space. After many attempts, I have given up on this bag. No matter how I try, the film binds up on the reel everytime in this bag. I notice that it feels humid in the bag when it is all sealed up. Maybe it is enough to make the film swell and prevent loading onto the reel. My advice would be to pay the extra dollars and get a light proof tent. That is my next option.
