    Indeed, it has proved very popular.

    Did the 54 daylight tank ever arrive?

    Arrived and used, very successful Kickstarter project. Perfect for when I have just a few sheets to process and don't want to use a litre of chemicals in the Doran tank.

    I'm reconsidering my options for 54, the Jobo is just bugging me.

    This looks interesting to me as I would love to be able to develop my own film but have no where for a darkroom quite tempted to have a punt on it.

    You only need a darkroom if you're printing your photos the traditional way, you can develop with a daylight tank and a changing bag then scan the negatives. That's the workflow for a lot of us who don't have darkrooms.

    Given that this is fully backed, am I right to assume that these will be on general sale to non-backers (albeit likely at a higher price) when they're ready?

    That's what normally happens, once they've fulfilled their commitment to the original backers they'll offer the next batch up to the general public I would have thought.

    Intersting to add features as stretch goals that are then delivered to everyone. I like the idea of the washing funnel. There's a built-in thermometer on my Rondinax I think but it's hard to read. Sorely tempted even thoughI've missed all the really early deals.

    I've been really impressed with their stretch goals, the stuff they've added makes a lot of sense from a usability point of view. I just it lives up to all the promise.

    Have you ordered one? Still thinking... I already have the Rondinax 35 (though it's showing its age), and shoot very little 120 at the moment...

    Those are some great stretch goals! The thermometer is a brilliant idea.

    I've ordered one with the 35mm and 120 format options. I'm really glad they've surpassed their funding goal it should make the final product even better.

    I do understand the worry involved in stretch goals but so far theirs have included different colours, additional crank, additional reel, washing funnel and a built in thermometer.
    Only the built in thermometer really requires any real change to the original design with all the others being little more than add-ons rather than making the design more complex and bearing in mind that these are being offered after
    their original target has been reached nearly 81/2 times over with 7 days still to go.

    In comparison to other Kickstarter campaigns I've backed this seems the most professional so far.

    These things always carry an element of risk but to my mind this appears to be the least risky I've been involved in so I'm not too worried, yet :D

    Yeah, but this is the problem. A lot of projects treat this as "extra" money, but it's not. Don't get me wrong, they may have costed it out properly, but those add-ons come at a price, and I'd rather a project stuck to their plans than got carried away with what they mistakenly see as an increased budget.

    Agreed, but surely this is economies of scale? With the increased funding and guaranteed sales it gives them greater wiggle room and those benefits are being passed onto the backers.

    If it came with a free cat, like the rather splendid-looking one in the photo on the link above, I think I'd be more interested! Watch that appear as one of their bundle options now! :LOL:

    Yes, I did think that was an odd paragraph! Definitely don't hold your breath, Nick, but it certainly looks like they've been working away at it!
