Dev.a: Tanks (individual Small, Medium, Large tanks)


**IN STOCK - SHIPS NEXT DAY** Tanks sold separately (use pull down menu at the bottom of the screen to add tanks to your cart).

Introducing the Dev.a!


Our machine supports all still photography development processes. We cover both black & white and color film as well as both negatives and positives.

Precise and effective temperature control is extremely important in color processes such as C41 and E6. Generally, temperature control is necessary in order to obtain consistent and reproducible results.

The chemistry tanks and the film tank can be fully immersed in a recirculating water bath that heats everything up to the desired temperature. Once the desired temperature is reached, Dev.a maintains it consistently throughout the process.


Film rotation is provided by magnets. The base of the inner column of the tank contains eight magnets that, when the tank is inserted into the machine, are coupled with other eight magnets mounted on a motor. When the motor spins, the film spins as well.

• Film tanks come in three different sizes to support your processing needs as
efficiently as possible.

• With our machine, you can process all commonly available formats, from 35mm rolls to 8×10 sheets.

• For 35mm or 120 rolls, our tanks are compatible with Jobo series 1500 reels or with Paterson/AP reels.

• For large format processing, we will provide our custom reels.

• Rotation parameters, such as speed and inversion interval, can be configured via software.

We have a lineup of three different tank sizes to suit your processing needs. The following table lists film capacity and required chemistry for each tank (different film type combinations in the same tank are also possible).
