The black 4 x 5 Sheet Film Developing Tank with Reel from Paterson is a B&H Kit containing the Paterson PTP116 Multi Reel 3 Tank and MOD54 Large Format Film Processor. This system allows you to easily load your film inside the tank using the notches found on the MOD54 that are similar to the notches found on 4 x 5 film. The system is suitable for fill and dump processing with its one-piece lid and easy pour design.

  • Paterson Multi-Reel 3 Developing Tank

    The Paterson Multi-Reel 3 Developing Tank is constructed from high-impact polystyrene that stands up to high volume use. This tank has no hidden parts, and is always easy to keep clean.

    The Super System 4 Tanks are durable, easy to use, and provide consistent, even film development.

    They feature a unique snap-in light trapping funnel for quick filling and emptying, to ensure even development and precise processing times.

    Super System 4 Tanks offer a choice of agitation methods; use inversion agitation,  rotary agitation with the removable agitator rod supplied, or a combination of both.

    This tank is supplied without reels so that a system best suited to the user's needs can be built up. Included with the tank itself is the center column, agitator rod, funnel and lid.

    Takes up to three 35mm films, or two 120/220 films with optional reels.
    The thoughtful design of Super System 4 includes a funnel which locks in place to keep reels secure. And as an extra safety feature, the cap cannot be locked if the funnel is improperly seated.
    Chemicals pour without splash, and solution quantities are permanently indicated on the bottom of every tank.
    All parts are interchangeable.
    The Super System 4 is simple to load, fast to fill, and easy to clean.
    A large diameter one piece lid and funnel which clips into place positively and securely, enabling the tank to be filled and emptied quickly.
  • MOD54 MOD54 Large Format Film Processor

    The MOD54 Large Format Film Processor is a 4 x 5" sheet film holder for use in conjunction with a Paterson Super System 4 PTP116 three-reel developing tank. This holder accepts up to six sheets of a 4 x 5" large format sheet film and permits standard inversion-type agitation methods during development.

    The holder is designed with a notch system, similar to 4 x 5" film itself, to facilitate easier loading and to ensure the emulsion side of the film is facing inward for greater protection against scratching.

4 x 5 Sheet Film Developing Tank with Reel (Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more 'taco method' Now I expect a lot of you will give me a hard time about using the taco method for developing my 4x5 negs, but I used that method out of necessity for over a year. I had used a vintage Price Monotank and hangers for some time, but wasn't able to get proper agitation without some sloshing. Enter the MOD54. A whole system enclosed within your standard Patterson system. It holds and loads 6 negatives, I found, easily in a dark bag on my first try. Just a quick double check that the sheets all had spacing in between and I was good to go. The fingers are deep enough, and with the help of the curl, easily hold the sheets securely. I didn't see any scratching like others have noticed, but I guess I'm a little more delicate then most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use If you're used to developing with the the patterson universal tanks for other formats then mod54 is for you! When I migrated to 4x5 format from 35mm 3 years ago, the only budget ($100) daylight tank available was the HP Combi Plan 4 x 5. HP Combi Plan 4 x 5 got the job done but the learning curve was a little steeper coming from 35mm. (I know this is a review of mod54 but I wanted to give you the full perspective of how it compares to an alternative product). Several complaints I had for the HP Combi : 1) funneling and draining chemicals took at least 1min, a minute too long for consistent developing 2) having to twist the air valve every time you want to empty or fill the tank 3) tank leaked even when sealed properly when agitating With the mod54 all these complaints were addressed, filling and emptying the tank with chemicals is just as if you're developing 3x35mm film. The only difference is loading the film and it loads loosely but when agitating with the Patterson stick in the circular motion, the film doesn't pop out. I highly recommend mod54 if you are coming from 35mm background

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I'm an old hand at developing 4x5 in open tank, but no longer have a darkroom. So when I saw the MOD54, I jumped at the opportunity to try it out. It's far superior to the old Yankee tank I used when I was a kid, and I have no complaints about it beyond the difficulty of loading six sheets into the holder. Also, I'm sorry that I can develop onlly six at a time, but this is not a major deterrent. Results are excellent, with even development across the whole sheet. Fast to fill, fast to empty, excellent product all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than the other 4x5 tanks that I have used. I've tried Yankee tanks, dip and dunk film holders, and taco method. This seems to be the best solution. It takes a little practice to learn to load the film, but being able invert the tank to agitate like a 35mm tank is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very well designed I use this product to develop black and white 4x5 film. it is very easy to load film into the holder, but it is hard to minimize your fingers touching film surface. I recommend wearing gloves when loading the film into holder to eliminate any chance of getting skin oils onto the film. overall its a great product and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless color development in 10 min Super easy to use and less hassle than tray or tube development. With a Tetenal C-41 Press ($$b&h) and this tank system I can develop 4x5 at a fraction of the cost & time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty well The 4x5 reel works once you master the loading. It is easy to mess up when the sheets are touching. It works better if you do not load up all 6 slots. I also use a Combiplan 4x5 tank but this one empties faster.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome tank! I ordered the Patterson tank from B&H got it three days later! Works great makes daylight developing of 4x5 film a no brainer. This tank along with a changing bag ( which I also got from B&H) eliminates the need for a darkroom to develop 4x5 film. Especially on the road when I'm staying at a motel. I bring pre measured chemicals in 1 liter bottles. I strongly recommend the Patterson tank for anyone developing 4x5 film !
