I see that B&H and Freestyle both stock the Rollei RLC low contrast developer. For those of us in the USA that is a very good thing.

The three Kodak 8x10 Hard Rubber tanks with covers were delivered. Their size and weight I was not prepared for. LOL. I have anothe 8x10 tank coming in tomorrow.

It all started with buying a Nikor rack with 12 120 reels that can hold 18 reels total of 120. On a good day's worth of shooting is about 18 rolls blasting away. I tend to shoot like an assasin in 3 and 5 round bursts moving slightly for different shots for editing. BTW the Nikor rack with 12 Nikor reels had a $50.00 BIN with free shipping: No money.

Use to take me an afternoon of doing several tanks, but now I have the capacity of dipping and dunking 18 reels all at once.

Bonus is that I can do 3 15 foot reels of 70mm for a similar number of shots of 6x7 in one batch.

So for me this type of capacity makes sense. ADOX seems the way to go because I can make it myself, and there is a replenisher. These tanks hold 3 1/2 gallons of developer. Crazy is good. Also useful for 135...

And the trick with the adapter-only one 2500-reel needed. Nokton48 has a drawing for 3D-printing. Is it the same one could find as file? the latter not allowed for commercial use? Holgamods should offer yours Nokton48. but he needs a 2500 reel then. maybe Catlabs could send him one for free.

TWO Hasselblad A500 Magazines. You would need an EL or EL/M body to make this workable.
500 exposures from 100 feet of perforated 70mm film.

Nikor 70mm Hundred Foot Reel by Nokton48, on Flickr

This is the Nikor 70mm Hundred Foot Reel. The lighttight cover screws down onto the reel, once it is loaded. See the threaded socket in the center of the reel? Then you drop the loaded reel and cover into the developing tank.

These reels are EXTREMELY heavy. Now this is truly going big LOL

I have two of these complete units presently in storage. Hope to make use of them some day.

Dan,

Mucho crazy. I like it.

The fourth tank came yesterday. Funny thing is that it has holes drilled for draining. I had intended to use this tank as a wash tank. Good to know it wasn't used for fixer or developer.

Bonus are 6 4x5 stainless steel film holdes and 6 stainless steel clip film holders.

How lucky am I?

Cal

Cal,

Here is my 8x10 Kodak Hard Rubber Wash Tank. It is marked Model 8181.
Notice the hose connection. I will be adding new vinyl hose and faucet connection (from Lowes) probably sometime soon.

Kodak 8x10 Wash Tank 1 by Nokton48, on Flickr

Here I have twisted the PVC pipe around, so that you can see the water jet holes. There are two sets of these, one on each side of the PVC tubing. I guess this is the original Kodak factory design. Will go with it and see how it works.

I think you're right too. I think I picked up the Nikor 15' reel. It's pretty big! But I think its meant to be developed in total darkness.... unless I have something different. I'll send pics when I'm back in Florida.
Can you lead me to informations about this 65mm/70mm film and how it is loaded. what is 65mm? did you remove remjet during developping or used ECN-2-chemicals?

And here is how to adapt a Jobo 120/220 reel to fit 70mm: Not fifteen feet but it will go in the Multiank JOBOS. Would be useful for short test dev rolls.
https://github.com/phenidone/jobo-70mm

how is this meant? can we use this template for free and ask a printing company-like holgamods-to do the work? 2. can he then sell it for others too?
Dan did you ask randy of holgamods already if he could print yours?

Hi Michael

No it is not my design to do anything with. I
simply saw it on the internet.

Why don't you simply cut down a 35mm Efke 25 plastic film can and use that? That is what I have done and it fits just great..........

70mm 2502 Jobo Reel by Nokton48, on Flickr

Michael, see the 35mm Efke film canister I cut with a razor? It fits JOBO center column tightly

See? I really do have two of these! And two developing tanks as well. Dragged them out of the basement of Midwest Photo fifteen years ago. $75 for the lot. The scrap stainless steel is worth more than that!

But now I have the Hasselblad 500 exposure motorized 70mm back coming my way. I knew buying these tanks for "no money" would pay off some day for me.

two 100 foot Nikor 70mm film reels by Nokton48, on Flickr

There was a time, when this would sell for as much as a car! Now it is MINE.

Advantages:

1) It does not use 70mm Kodak cartridges, it takes Kodak 100 foot 70mm film spools. So no scratching during cartridge loading.

2) Has a integrated guillotine cutter, shoot what you want, then open in the dark and unload a short strip if you wish.

3) Two integrated film counters.

4) Found it also also fits the 500C and 500 C/M, as well as the E/L and EL/M. So it will work with both of my cameras.

5) The "cool factor" is undeniable. I am a collector, as well as a user.

Dan,

Mucho crazy. I love it.

Mark Cuban once said, "Go big: or don't go." LOL.

What is the weight of a loaded Blad with that back. My guess easily 10 pounds. Film alone weighs a lot. Does that back use cassettes or spools?

Funny how we can invent ways to use gear. 100 feet of 70mm is almost 37 rolls of 120 equiv.

Also for those have not handled Nikor reels, know even the 15 footers are mighty sturdy and beefy in weight. My guess is that one of those reels alone weights about 2 1/2-3 pounds. Maybe more?

Seems like an opportunity to buy rare things for no money. It has been a month of waiting and the shipping for the Version 1 reel and cassette loader is almost been a month. The shipping was actually more than the purchase price, and at last check the loader from Germany is presently somewhere in New York. Perhaps delivery will happen today. Overall only paid $83.00. Most of the price was shipping.

Cal

According to the Hasselblad instruction sheets (just provided by Europanorama!)

Magazine 46 oz, film 21 oz, battery 3 1/2 oz. Plus the camera, finder, and whatever lens.

So a bit of a beast!

Should stop traffic............ LOL

WoW Dan! That Hasselblad 500 exposure motorized 70mm back is insane! What did you do for the battery? It's surprising that it did not have any additional way of securing its connection to the body. Also it looks its made to be used with sports finder on the left side of the Hasselblad. Original Users of the beasts most likely did not look for perfect framing. Tape distance to infinity and just blast it

Goran,

It's on its way to me from Utah. It uses the same NiCad battery that powers the EL/M. One or maybe two can go in the trap door on the side. I'm hoping I can power it with my EL/M 9V alkaline adapter. Those old original Hasselblad NicCads are terrible.......... UGH I'm almost positive it allows regular reflex viewing. Nothing special required according to the original instructions. I think NASA used to use these to photograph Saturn 5 rocket launchings, among other uses. This is probably the rarest Hasselblad accessory ever made. And the most expensive!! Can't wait to get it in my hands! Now, should I buy the second one the seller has offered me? I think not! One of these is enough for me. LOL

I am going to earnestly try this weekend to mix fresh ADOX Borax MQ Developer and Replenisher. So I have dug out the recipe and here it is:


ADOX Borax MQ Developer

Metol.............................. 4 grams
Sodium Sulphite............... 80 grams
Hydroquinone.................. 8 grams
Borax.............................. 8 grams
Potassium Bromide........... 1 grams
Water to make................. 2.0 liters

Add a pinch of sulphite to the water before adding the Metol. Or else it will "self destruct", oxidizing before your very eyes. That is aggravating..............


ADOX Borax MQ Replenisher

Metol........................... 3 grams
Sodium Sulphite.......... 80 grams
Hydroquinone............... 5 grams
Borax......................... 18 grams
Water to make............ 1.0 liter

Rate of replenisher: 20 ml per 80 square inches of film (120 roll)


I use one and two liter plastic soda bottles to store the soups.

Dan, you are so dedicated to 70mm film! Congratulation!
I decided to dig deeper and explore extended red sensitivity of Kodak Double X Aerographic 2405 and Rollei 400s in 70mm. Yesterday I got nice Kenro R720 filter. Of course, I will try to run them also with regular #25 and #29 red filters.

Haven't had time to check it out. Hopefully it is as described.
The back itself is not anywhere near as heavy as I had imagined. Surprisingly light in weight.

EDIT: It's got a few issues, so back it goes. Oh Well! There is always another deal down the road.

My Wife said "that is insane". LOL

The Graflex XL Grip arrived today. I searched for a while for a complete unit, a lot of them are missing things. Anyway the brass plate on the bottom of the Norma frame is not going to come apart, so I think I will make a block, attaching the top part with the brass plate, and I'd like to use the removable 3/8" threaded bolt in the top of the grip for the bottom part. I'm sure I can come up with something. At this point the grip is attached to the Norma with duct tape. But now, it really looks like a real Sinar Handy!

Better be careful where you walk around with that thing, Police might shoot at you! I once walked through a forest with a Novoflex 600mm pistol grip lens and all of a sudden military guys jump out of the bushes and wrestled me down to the ground because they thought I was part of a military exercise! Really scary experience.

Actually it's on it's way back to the seller for a refund. I doubt it had ever been used, but that is a problem! The top back wouldn't close properly (sure it needed new foam! Something else was going on....) and one of the frame counters was completely wonky. No way it was going to work.

Hasselblad would probably just laugh if I asked about getting it CLA'ed. Who else could do it?

I am going to stick with the Hasselblad A70s. They work for the most part.

Here is the other way to finish this, and frankly, I think I prefer this option. The Graflex XL grip is not as ergonomic as the Linhofs, but I think it will work ok. One bonus is that this one is complete (usually they are not), and includes the threaded flash shoe, which seems like a good bonus to me. I would have to drill a hole for the orientation pin on the XL mounting plate, then drill and tap two small mounting holes for machine screws in the Norma frame. But that is doable. Finally I can bolt a Manfrotto Hex plate to the bottom of the frame, to fit all of my tripod heads.

So it becomes like a poor man's Linhof Technar. But with Norma parts.

Completed XL Grip Sinar Handy by Nokton48, on Flickr

Had some time yesterday so I figured out a way to attach the Graflex XL Grip to the Norma format frame. I used two tiny brass hobby screws and nuts. It seems to be a very solid arrangement. The camera seems heavier with a side grip. I am still looking at Linhof grips but I want to give this a try. The Mamiya 7 43mm Viewfinder works like a dream. I am getting there....

Graflex XL 70mm Film Back on homemade Sinar Norma Handy body. This back will make 50 6x7 exposures on perforated or unperforated 70mm film. And I have several rolls of unperorated 70mm (Tri-X and Efke PL100).

|Hey Calzone,Nokton-

Somebody on large fprmat photography forum has a 200 ft roll of Agfa ISO 200 ariel film 9.5" wide for 220 euro's. I figured it out...if you can figure out how to cut it down, you can get 600 feet of 70mm unperfed fim out of it. it works out to 55 cents a foot.

Hey Mr Fujicaman,

Thanks for that! I will keep that in mind. That stock would even feed my 8x10 Normas for a great price.

Hi there,

I'm a brand new user on this forum, and this thread was one of the main reasons for joining up. I have never used 70mm film, so this could be a new exiting adventure. The plan is to put a Mamiya RB67 70mm back on my Polaroid 600SE, using a Mamiya G-adapter. As for film I'm already a customer with Macodirect. My main issue now is how to develop the film. Due to restricted space I'm looking for a tank solution, but used equipment for sale is thin on the ground. The NDT reels that Dan has purchased look very promising. I have a Beseler 11x14 paper dev. tank that I'm not using, and I had the idea that I could "cut it down to size" and use it as a film tank. But I have not been able to find the diameter on those NDT reels, so I wondered if Dan could possibly help me with that? I would be very grateful to get that information.

Hi There Kai-San,

The NDT reels are rather large, I just measured across one of them. They are 6 3/8" in diameter, and 3 1/4" in height. You will need a really large print drum to hold it. But it is doable.

Here is a 70mm NDT reel, on the left is a SS 120 reel for comparison, and on the right, a JOBO 120/220 reel.

It's also possible to make something out of stainless steel. See photo above left:

OMG OMG OMG!!! Look what Dad got me as a gift!!!! Nikor 70mm developing tank!!! These things are IMPOSSIBLE to find!!! #70mm #ilovefim #ishootfilm #mediumformat #nikor #film #family #dad #developing #winning #work #chemistry #116 #616 #yes by Stone, on Flickr

Europanorama (Micheal) made this 70mm daylight tank by cutting down a 20x24 Chromega Print drum. He says he has used it for years and it works great. As I recall I think he uses this with a JOBO 70mm reel. Now THOSE are really hard to find.

Also JOBO makes the #3063 20x24 print drum and that can be cut down, and should also work. An inversion cap is available for that one.

Thanks Dan for the measurement and all the good tips. You were quite right about the size of these reels, my print drum is about an inch to narrow. I have to look into the Jobo print drum, looks very promising if it can be found.
I have a brand new Mamiya 70mm back on its way from Australia, it comes with 2 cartridges as well. Now I need to find a smart way of loading them with the correct length of film for the reel.

There are five or six of the 3063 JOBOs on Ebay right now, each priced $200-$500 each.

Don't buy one until you confirm the inside diameter of the print drum: But it will prolly fit.

Catlabs is the JOBO distributor and is pretty friendly and knowledgeable

No worries-just thought of you and Nokton when I saw it.

Yeah, I checked ebay too. The Catlab site is down for the moment, I'll check later.
