    Tank/containers/etc for hanger developing

    Hey guys!

    I recently moved from 4x5 to 5x7. My preferred developing method was hangers in a set of Kodak plastic tanks. Looking around, it seems that 5x7 tanks are rare and expensive.

    Does anyone know of a receptacle of some sort that will work without costing a fortune?

    Thanks!

    If you have hangers, you should be able to find some kind of plastic (e.g., Tupperware-type) container that will serve your purpose. Take a hanger shopping with you.

    Or, might I suggest, trays?

    5X7 tanks are rare. Not so rare are 8X10 tanks with 2 up 5X7 hangers which I use to develop 8 5X7 on 4 hangers in 8X10 tanks.

    Put a watch on eBay, it's how i found mine.
