Firstcall is proud to announce that following on from the successful launch of the 8 x 10-inch sheet film processing system, we are now offering the smaller 4 x5 inch version from Punto Foto in the UK.

Artifex, in Latin, means artist or craftsman, and that certainly applies to the way this tank has been designed and manufactured.

Made from hard-wearing ABS material, the interior of the tanks contains a rack in which six individual sheet film guides sit. Once you load the tank in the dark and you tighten the two locking screws, you can carry out all other processing in daylight. If you want to process less than six sheets at a time, there is a blank frame you can insert to save on processing costs. By using this blank you can process just one or two sheets economically.

The Artifex is the most economical way to develop 4 x 5-inch sheet film. You only use 1.0 litre of working solution chemistry to process six sheets which makes it far cheaper to both purchase and run when compared to the Jobo Expert system of tanks. Artifex, therefore, uses half the chemistry of an Expert system. The two central square knobs use "O" ring stoppers which then reveal the pour holes for filling and emptying the chemistry. You even get a little funnel to aid you in this task. It tanks just 10-12 seconds to fill the tank with chemistry.

We love this new addition to our darkroom portfolio - the first new sheet film developing a system for ten years - made, with love, in Italy.
