    Jobo J1520 Reviews

    Two-Reel Film Tank #1520 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tank I recently set up a small home darkroom and ordered a whole kit from BH, which included the Jobo 1520. I first started processing film way back in the mid 70's and have used virtually ever tank known, including stainless steel in-to-out reels photojournalists in the field used almost exclusively. This is undoubtedly the easiest tank I've ever loaded and used, mainly because of the reel design. As with most plastic reels, you load out-to-in, and the Jobo is very easy to hit in total darkness because of a great design feature: If you hold it between thumb and index finger there's a section that's indented you can grab. Then, it's super easy to find the outer ring slots to get started. And, if the film hangs up a little you can use the indented section to shift it along. Great feature! Another great feature is a slight flattening of the outer edge which gives you a place to sit the reel on the table or counter and when you pick it up, it's positioned exactly where you need it. The rest of the tank works great--easy to pour in and out, good seals, nicely written little manual,and apparently very tough plastic. I would highly recommend this reel to anyone new to film developing as it reduces the frustration most students and new enthusiasts experience in loading film. For experienced folks, it just makes things go smoother.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful for 120 and 35mm film developing at home The JOBO 1520 is much easier to load than the metal reels/tanks I have tried. I use it for 120 roll film and 35mm film developing and I get consistent results. The single supplied reel can be used for either 120 or 35mm. I like that it does not leak when inverting the tank for agitation.
