    Yankee UF-45 reviews

    Utility Developing Tank for Film up to 4x5 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from OK - if manufactured properly Ordered these for our darkroom at the school I work at. All of them (ordered 5 or 6) were not manufactured properly. The notches on the base that allow you to change the format of the film you are developing were not carved properly on any of them, so the film holder needed to be glued into the proper position - it would have come apart during use otherwise, leaving one's film just floating around in the tank. The HP Combiplan tank is better, but not by much. (The HP uses about half of the amount of liquid as the Yankee, which uses about 54oz. This is a lot) If you are serious about large format film, do yourself a favor and get a darkroom and develop your film in trays. Leave the tanks for roll film

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite good Good tank for 4x5, relatively sturdy. Floater lid tends to sink in working-strength hypo-clear. Be careful with leaving developer in a tank for too long (ie, a few weeks), it seems to take the black finish off the inside of the tank and could deposit it on your film. I filtered the chemistry with a coffee filter, scrubbed the inside clean, and all was well.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Long lasting, but dribbly I've had a couple of these for a long time. they're very durable. They are also a little larger than the stainless steel tanks, which is nice. The biggest problem is they don't have a spout for pouring back in the bottle, they dribble all over. Stainless Steel tanks dribble less, but still dribble. To empty these tanks, I usually pour them into a 8x10 tray, so they dribble into the tray, and then pour the tray into the bottle. I've never used the lids.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite what I was looking for. I picked this up not realizing that, not only can this only be used in a dark or darkroom setting, it doesn't include the hangers for the film. These hangers are very expensive and difficult to track down. Additionally, I wouldn't be comfortable inverting this tank if it's loaded with chemicals. I'll most likely pick up the Stearman Press SP-445 system which includes everything you need, is light tight, and uses only 16 oz of chemistry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what you ask of it, highly recommended Well constructed and the floating interior top helps avoid oxidation of your developer. There is ample room for 4x5 sheet film, I've had 6 sheets in at the same time but think the advertised 12 sheets would be a little crowded. If you think of photography as an art form then 4x5 (or larger) film is a need not a want. If you are developing your own film this dip and dunk tank is a need you should fill.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I use four of these tanks to process 4X5 film on Kodak hangers. The floating lids help slow oxidation so chemicals last much longer. When not in use, I snap the heavy lids on for storage. I can just put the tanks in the fridge an hour before use and they are good to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When room is tight If you don't have room for a 3 1/2 gallon sink line this may be the next best thing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wish they were a little more durable. I wish they were a little more durable, but they do what they do.....
