    "Duh" moment: I guess I should have said mostly-sealed container with some ventilation, or the prints will take forever to dry.

    Yankee Cut Film Daylight Developing Tank, Use rubber bands to hold the adjustable film holder at the size needed.

    How best to dry FP-100c in the field?

    I only use the FP100C as a test exposure these days so I would just lay them on the ground...

    The FR tank would also work thogh, that's a good and cheap solution. Good idea Oren.

    $10 should get you one. The tank you love to hate and hate to need...

    I always bring the disassembled rack from Combi-Plan tank with my Polaroid for outside shooting.
    Putting the rack to the position 2 without the blue spacers, or the position 3 with the thick DIYed spacers. Then, you can insert the wet paper. The maximum number you can insert is 12.
    You can change the next batch wet papers after the first batch dried.

    Wow! This is honestly the first time I've ever seen the combi-plan tank! No one ever posts pictures, but I had an entirely different vision of what this might have looked like, glad to finally know what I was missing.

    Thanks for posting!

    Here's what I cooked up today. I'm brainstorming a lid with some sort of ventilation built in. If I filled the compartment with holes, that would work but might allow dust to get in. I don't shoot enough of this stuff to warrant carrying a case in the field. I will make one (4x5 size) to keep in the car.
    Lanyard or belt clip?

    That looks like a great solution! Do you have your own CNC mill for this?

    My roommate is painter and has these old 1/8" thick hardbord/hardboard panels left over, so I was planning to just clip my FP-100C sheets to it with some office metal binder clips around the perimeter as a simple solution. Though want to make sure the binder clip end doesn't slap back onto the wet image.
