4x5 Film Reel for Jobo / Paterson System

49.00

This 4x5 film spiral reel is designed to hold 6 sheets of 4x5 film.
It is compatible with both the Jobo 15xx tanks and the Paterson Super System 4 tanks (which have a capacity of 3x135 reels).

This reel measures 104mm in height and 130mm in diameter, and is made of high-quality PVC and PETG materials.
It's a reliable and durable choice for photographers looking to experiment with large format film for the first time.
With some practice, loading and unloading the reel is straightforward, and the film is held securely during development.

To develop 4x5 film using this reel, we recommend using the 1510 tank paired with the 1530 tank as a minimum configuration. This setup will allow you to process 6 sheets of film at a time.
For the inversion process, you will need 0.65L of chemicals. The amount of chemicals required for the rotary process will vary depending on the tank you are using.

If you have additional 1530 tanks, you can increase the capacity to 12 sheets by using two reels, or 18 sheets by using three reels.

It's important to note that the 1520 tank alone is not long enough to accommodate the reel, and the Paterson Super System 4 tank with a capacity of 2x135 reels is also too short.

Large format film has a unique look and feel that sets it apart from other film sizes.
Its larger negative size allows for exceptional detail and clarity in your images, making it a popular choice among photographers.

But shooting large format isn't just about the technical aspects. It's about the experience. It's about slowing down and really considering each shot. It's about the anticipation and the journey.
The process of loading and unloading the film, the excitement of composing each shot, and the satisfaction of watching your images come to life in the darkroom. Large format film allows you to connect with your work on a deeper level and create truly one-of-a-kind images, whether it be stunning landscapes or intimate portraits.
