Review: Living with the ars-imago Lab-Box - by Tom Rayfield

The makers claim it to be easy and quick to use allowing you to “develop your own films in full daylight anywhere and at any time”. For those of you not wanting to read this entire article, here’s the TLDR: …the Lab-Box is a quirky, yet brilliant piece of kit for developing 35mm or 120 format film. There is a small learning curve and the margin of error is quite fine, but once mastered provides an excellent solution to those without space for a full darkroom setup, or for the more casual film photographer.

Yes, there are alternative setups that can be had for less money, but if you are looking for an all-in-one film developing solution that can be used during the day, look no further. Before I begin the review of the Lab-Box, as is often customary with reviews these days, a quick disclaimer.

Bellini Hydrofen B&W Film Developer 100ml or 250ml ~ aka Rodinal Special/Studional – Nik & Trick Photo Services

An almost direct replacement for the legendary Studional or Rodinal Speziale, this is a fine-grain black and white film developer with an excellent contrast balance once loved by many great photographers. It will develop just about all b&w films, all the most popular ones have times given in the datasheet and our guide sheet which can be downloaded below…and for sure, we are lucky to see the return of this developer courtesy of Snr Bellini! 250ml is the new larger sized bottle of this superb film developer made especially for Nik & Trick Photo…100ml is perfect for the low to average volume user. The pack is 1 bottle of concentrate product to be diluted 1+15 / 1+39 (and others!) So it is nice and economical to use with good shelf life. P30 Best Practices v3. How I built my darkroom for less than $500. “Oh sure, it may not look like much, but it’s going to be my new photo darkroom.”

I said this, with a touch of nostalgia, a bit of a whim, and the driving force of practicality around the return of my college-age children (and their belongings) to our home this summer. It was New Years Day when I opened the door of our basement storage area. Not every home has a basement, but in our part of the central plains, it’s fairly common that some of the basement be fully finished rooms, often with a walk-out door to the outside. In our case, the part of the basement where I was standing is a large, partially finished space, with some raw wood stud walls, a few electrical sockets. In the space was a separate and an odd-shaped corner room that was finished on the inside. This was – at the time, storage – filled with overflowing boxes, old studio lights, a hand-painted portrait backdrop and other collections of “things“. But I was committed. Much better.

The second was in a steel-walled bomb shelter under a Georgian granite house belonging to his girlfriend's parents (her father was a very generous man). Ventilation.
