Park Street Ice Cream
The Paterson Orbital processor arrived today in great shape, ready to hasten the selection of materials, time and reagents, as well as film choices for new field processable 4x5 black and white negatives. Having a fast, daylight tank that doesn't use gallons of chemicals is a relief.
It's too bad Paterson stopped producing this product. On the embossed surface, it is marked "patent applied for" but I haven't spotted it yet online. Perhaps Paterson decided it wasn't worth it, or maybe the claims were so narrow that it hardly mattered. One has to go on ebay and buy from someone in England to get one, and the postage is very expensive.
