  • Large-diameter design promotes fast filling and dumping speeds for improved developing accuracy

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.

Scratches your film

By Franklin
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-02-23

Overall no leakage. Easy to do inversion. However it is quick finicky to put on the film sheets onto the reel. The reel actually SCRATCHES your film on the side. So please keep that in mind. It also consumes double the developer solution needed compared to a stearman press.

Haven’t developed 4x5 in almost 6 years and this was very easy to load and use, haven’t had any issues with scratches or anything.

Super easy to use and great for developing 4x5 sheet film. Took off a star for the price.

One of the fingers is broken off. Took a long time to get it shipped, arrived broken, but did not notice for a month till I first tried using it. Complete shame it is so cheap. We will see if B&H stands by what they sell.

Difficult to load and scratches

By Gustavo

Echoing another reviewer here, these are difficult to load and scratch film without fail at every contact point. I would remind the B’s 45 reel which also fits Paterson tanks is a cinch to load and doesn’t scratch the film. Just make sure emulsion side is inward facing. Hopes this helps.

Less expensive alternative for 4x5 but rinse before use

Black guck came out on first developing run. Rinse it out well before first use. Otherwise it works. Need to make sure the lid is sealed well all the way around.

Used on & off. Designed for 6 BUT do NOT use more than 4 sheets, as film loading issues can cause edges and centers to touch. No matter how much you check, there is still an issue. Use the inner and outter slots ONLY. You have been warned!

Challenging to use

By Steven

There is a definite learning curve to the MOD54. Watch the videos on his site and practice repeatedly! I have been using this for months and am slowly getting the hang of it. The sheets easily pop out of the slots which can lead to problems. You also need to agitate more aggressively than you do with 35mm or 120 in a Paterson tank, too. But when it works you get lovely results.

My developer is only 700ml , can I develop 4x5 sheets using the Inversion method? Or the developer should be full quart 946ml?? I'm using Cs41 with this paterson tank and the reel?
Asked by: Anonymous
If the photos mean anything to you I would acquire the proper volume of developer, the risk of inconsistent developing is very high is you're using a lower volume

question

Does the Mod54 work with 4x5 paper or strictly for sheet film? anyone had any success/failure using paper?
Asked by: Omar Z.
I don't see why it wouldn't work. The Mod45 is merely to hold the film (or paper in your case) in place so that it gets even development. As long as the paper is rigid enough to stay in the slots without falling out due to being too wet, then it should be fine. I think it would be ok with both RC and Fibre paper, but not sure of direct positive paper (not sure if it's thinner/less rigid or not... especially when it's submerged in liquid).

question

Right now I use the two 35mm reel system. The funnel locks into the spindle so that the whole rig is light tight. I'm starting to shoot 4x5 and it doesn't look like the Mod54 comes with a solid spindle so does this mean you have to change chemicals in the dark?
Asked by: Kirk L.
No. You just use the spindle that came with the tank. Same as with the 35mm reels! Hope this helps.

question

Does anyone know if this can be used with 2.25x3.25 sheet film? I have several 35mm, medium format, and one camera that takes the 2.25x3.25 sheet film and am trying to find the simplist way to develop all three types of film with the least amount of equipment.

question

How much chemistry does it take to develop 6 films 4x5? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
I use 1000 ml or 1 litre of each chemistry regardless of whether it is one sheet or 6 sheets of 4x5 film. If the developer is to be used multiple times than four 4x5 sheets at a time typically makes it easier to figure out the development time for each successive batch of 4x5 film.
