    20th Century Camera reels

    Have any of you tried the 20th Century Camera sheet film reels made for Patterson tanks (for example, the QL45-P for 4x5 sheets)? I'm trying to decide between that system and the Stearman Press tank, so any insight would be appreciated.

    I've got one of his 8x10 reels ... but for Jobo tanks, amazingly easy to load.

    Is there uneven development around the 'arms'?
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    I have these reels for 4x5. I have not experienced uneven development around the arms. The watchout will be if you use Bregger film, which I understand has emulsion on both sides of the film
