Paterson PTP125 Overview

The Paterson Changing Bag is an essential piece of equipment for your 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 means a jammed or partly exposed film roll can be safely removed from the camera, shooting can continue, and your film can be loaded into a developing tank without having to find a darkroom.
It has a fail-safe double skin with a double zip closure. The inner lining is specially designed to prevent perspiration during prolonged use.
The Paterson changing bag is small enough to fit in a camera bag, yet large enough to contain a fully-opened camera back or a roll of film that needs to be loaded into a tank.

Is the inside of the bag dust free?
Asked by: Suzanne
It’s dust free when brand new and still in the packaging. Whether it remains dust free depends on whether the equipment placed inside is dust free and how it’s stored. I think a small amount of dust inside the bag is inevitable but shouldn’t cause any serious issues.

can this be used to load 4x5 film?
Asked by: Susan
Yes but as always when it comes to changing bags. The film might be prone to dust issues if you are loading film into film holders.
