Jobo 1540 MultiTank Film Developing Tank + 1x 1501 Reel
The Jobo 1500 modular Tank System is made of chemical-resistant plastics for inversion or rotation processing of 35mm and roll films.
The Jobo 1540 film developing tank is the largest tank in Jobo's 1500 series developing tanks and consists of a Jobo 1510 35mm tank combined with the 1530 extension module. The tank comes with one adjustable 1501 reel for the development of one 35mm film or up to two 120 roll films. The packaging also includes the standard red tank cover for manual inversion development.
The 1540 developing tank can develop up to four 35mm films simultaneously using four 1501 reels. Depending on the use of the clip system in the 1501 reel, the 1540 tank can also develop two to four 120 roll films simultaneously using two 1501 reels. Each 1501 reel is equipped with a red clip which makes it possible to load two roll films on one reel without the risk of overlap. Because of this possibility, two roll films can be developed simultaneously with one 1501 reel. Since the 1540 tank can hold two 1501 reels with an adapted format for roll film, the tank can develop two roll films if the clip system is not used and four roll films if the clip system is used.
When using the tank for inversion processing by hand the tank must be filled with at least 975ml of photochemistry making it one of the most economical ways to develop multiple 35mm and roll films. For rotary processing with a compatible Jobo processor, the tank only needs 470ml of photochemistry to do the job. In that case the tank also needs to be fitted with a cog (#1505) in order to attach it to the lift of the processor or a tank magnet base (#1504) if the processor is not equipped with a lift. Both accessories are not included and sold separately.
Jobo 1509 Roller Base for Film Developing Tanks
The Jobo 1509 Roller Base enables you to carry out rotary processing of your films in daylight and at room temperature in a simple and effective way. It is an essential tool for those who don't need temperature control (Jobo Processor) and don't want to develop their films with the more standard inversion processing. For example when you are developing black-and-white sheet films with a 2500-series developing tank.
The roller base is compatibel with all Jobo tanks: 1500, 2500, 2800, 3000 and Expert.
Jobo 3310 Scaled Chemical Storage Bottles (2x600ml)
A set of two white 600ml wide-mouth scaled bottels for chemical storage. Two different colors, white and black.
For these storage bottles, Jobo has designed a special cap that closes the storage bottles more effectively. Contrary to other models of storage bottles on the market, the inside of the cap is designed in such a way that stored photochemicals are properly sealed without the need for additional foam damping. Not only does this ensure exceptionally long bottle life without compromising sealing effectiveness, but it also prevents contamination of chemicals as long as the lids are cleaned and rinsed with water after each development session.
Jobo 3308 Graduated Cylinder (1x260ml)
A Jobo 3308 measuring cylinder of 260ml, with markings in 5ml increments for accurate liquid measurements.
Jobo 3350 Cascade Rapid Film Washer for Film Developing Tank
The Jobo Cascade Rapid Film Washer allows you to rinse your newly developed films efficiently and quickly with minimal water consumption. As water is becoming more and more a scarce commodity, this is an unmissable tool in every darkroom for those who want to develop sustainable films!
The Jobo Cascade can be attached to almost every water tap. The adapter fits on every Jobo film developing tank and in general on every plastic developing tank on the market such as those of Paterson or AP. As soon as the cascade is attached to the tank, a constant water circulation ensures that films are completely rinsed within 3 to 5 minutes without removing them from the tank. The water circulation is regulated by regulating the water supply via the water tap.
Vitlab Graduated Cylinder (1x20ml), Jobo Film Clip Set and Kaiser Precision Thermometer
Last but not least, the kit also includes a 20ml Vitlab graduated cylinder, ideal for when using developers with high dilution ratios such as Rodinal. Two sets of original film clips from Jobo for hanging your film to dry and a precision thermometer that is also suitable for developing color film (measures up to 50 °C).
