CatLABS CL81: an 8X10 Sheet Film Processing Reel


The CatLABS CL81 is a simple, easy to use, low-cost alternative for processing 8X10 sheet film in daylight tanks. It is also a great solution for processing up to 3 sheets of 8X10 film in a Jobo Multitank 5.

Daylight processing is easy. Load in the dark, process in full light so you can see what you are doing.

Rotate on any flat surface, or use a manual or motorized roller base.

Create your own process, control time, temperature and agitation. Can also be used for stand development.

Here is a short loading demo:

Process 8X10 sheets of film on any Jobo processor, even the CPE2 and ATL1000/1500:

The CatLABS CL81 was designed with smaller processors in mind. The Multitank 5 is the largest tank compatible with the Jobo ATL1000/1500. That being said, a fully loaded CL81 does not exceed the capacity limit of the CPE2. For the first time, you can use your compact processor to process 8X10, without having to make any compromises. Of course, the CL81 and Multitank 5 can be used with any of the larger Jobo processors.
