Does the job well

Using it on 35mm and 120 film. So far so good. Make sure you get it wet before using it. And don't go too crazy with it and you should be good.

get it wet first before using... well, that came out weirder than initially in my head. But have the rubber soften it up with water rather than testing it dry first on the wet film.

Works well; gentle on negatives.

The rubber is very soft. Removes most of the water, leaving only a bit at the sprocket holes.

Use for my B&W film and it does the job admirably with 4 of its blades. If there are streaks or drops after I make 2 passes, it's always a user error. A must, if you develop your film at home and don't want water spots, which are disastrous in scanning the film and nearly impossible to remove later. I'd pair this with a wetting agent after the last bath, to get squeaky clean film.

Successfully squeegees water from film. There is much discussion about whether or not to use these in fear of scratching the negative. I think if you are careful the Paterson Film Squeegee can be used without causing damage to film or emulsion. The Paterson Film Squeegee has a simple and effective design and one that does not allow you to apply more pressure that necessary to removes excess water for a roll of film, keeping you from crushing the film between the strong grip of a photographer/developer. Worth the couple dollars just to try.

Easily removes water from negatives

I use this on 120 rolls after fishing them out of the stabilizer or photo-flo. If used in a smooth motion over the whole roll, it will get the majority of the liquid off, leaving the negative to dry uniformly.

This is exactly what I needed to prevent drying streaks and spots on my film when it comes out of the tank and is hanging up to dry. It also helps the film to dry faster. I took several people's advice and got the squeegee wet prior to using it on my film.
