Product Details

Multi-purpose system for processing 35mm & 120 B&W/color film at home.

CineStill has partnered with JOBO, the industry leader in film processing tools, to provide the best complete processing kits with everything you need to process film at home. Together we have worked with JOBO to create some exclusive deals. Now is the time to start your home lab with some of the best products on the market, and at a reduced price! If you are wanting to get serious about home developing, this is the kit for you!

The JOBO DUO Film Processing Kit makes processing color film at home easier and more affordable than ever! Our Cs41 "Color Simplified" color chemistry, paired with our brand new TCS-1000 temperature control system, makes handling color chemistry and temperature control a breeze. With this kit, processing color film is even simpler and faster than traditional black and white processing! Well...with the exception of our Df96 Monobath single-step solution.  


JOBO 1520 Developing Tank + 2 Film Reels 


The JOBO 1520 Tank is the efficient tank for chemical use out there, requiring less chemistry per roll than any other system available. It comes with two 1501 Duo reels and can process either two rolls of 35mm film on two reels or two rolls of 120 film on a single reel. Use inversions for intermittent agitation or rotary processing by laying the tank on it’s side and rotating constantly, requiring just half the chemical volume for economic chemistry consumption.

 

°Cs "Temperature Control System" TCS-1000**


The TCS-1000 immersion circulator/thermostat allows you to efficiently and easily mix concentrates and powder chemicals, heat them up to the precise processing temperature, and maintain it during the entire developing session. Intuitive interface preset to standard C-41 processing, and easily adjustable temperature and timers for any process. Universal design holds two 1000ml. storage bottles in a tub, sink, or basin of your preference, at the desired temperature. 
**This is the 1500W, 120V/60Hz, 1000W US power plug model. For 220-240V,50/60Hz VDE power plug please order from our European distributor

 

 

°Cs 1000ml Chemistry Mixing Jug/Pitchers (2)

 

 

Place the TCS-1000 in the °Cs 1000ml Mixing Jug with the marked volume of water and add each bottle of concentrate or bag of powdered chemistry to the solution. The chemistry is easily mixed and heated to the correct processing temperature in a few seconds without splatter, spill or additional oxidation. Heated chemistry is then ready for immediate processing.

 

°Cs 1000ml Collapsible Storage Bottles (2)

Heat conductive material keeps chemistry at the correct temperature with the TCS-1000 "Temperature Control System". Opaque plastic designed for storing darkroom chemistries that are sensitive to light and air. Accordion-like bottle with screw-on cap can be compressed allowing the volume of the bottle to be adapted to match the amount of liquid in it, which reduces the risk of oxidation. Chemicals stored in the bottle last longer when compared to conventional bottles.

 


Cs41 "Color Simplified" For Color Processing At Home (C-41 Chemistry)
 


Processing ANY color negative film at home is easy with these 2 simple chemistry mixtures, reusable for up to 24 rolls of film. Processing your own color film doesn't have to be complicated or expensive!

 Df96 "Developer&Fix" B&W Monobath, Single-Step Solution 


This versatile, single-step “Developer&Fix” monobath solution is perfect for processing any black & white film in minutes, with no need for stop bath, fixer, or any other chemicals. 530ml of ready-to-use chemistry will develop 8+ rolls of film. Powder makes 1000ml of reusable chemistry for processing 16+ rolls of film. Download Df96 Complete PDF Instructions 

 

  

Wide-Mouth Bottle (Powder Chemistry Kit Only)

 

Plastic wide-mouth bottle made for storing your lab-chemicals. Because of the large opening, it is easy to fill and perfect for reuse with the Df96 Powder Chemistry.

 


 


Get started



Developing color film with the Cs41 kit

Step 1: Mix the chemicals
  • Mix the Cs41 Developer and Blix using the TCS-1000 and 1000mL mixing jugs. It's important to fully clean the TCS-1000 to avoid cross-contaminating the chemistry. For a closer look at chemical mixing with the TCS-1000.
Step 2: Load the film in the developing tank

  • Film must be loaded in complete darkness. If you don't have a space that can be blacked out, consider purchasing a film changing bag.

Step 3: Pour in the Developer & agitate the developing tank
  • Bring the chemicals in your labelled storage bottles up to 102F using the TCS-1000.
  • Pour the Developer into the tank carefully, but as quickly as possible.
  • Start the first timer on the TCS-1000 (3 minutes and 30 seconds) and agitate the tank using inversion cycles for the first 10 seconds, then do 4 inversion cycles every 30 seconds. As you continue to re-use the Developer, you'll have to increase the developing time. See more details here.
  • At the end of the first timer you'll hear a beep. Quickly pour the Developer solution back into your labeled storage bottle.
Step 4: Pour in the Blix & agitate the developing tank
  • Pour the Blix into the tank carefully, but as quickly as possible.
  • The second timer will begin on the TCS-1000 with a beep. Agitate the tank the same way as the developer, for 8 minutes.
  • At the end of the 8 minutes, pour the Blix solution back into your labeled storage bottle.
Step 5: Wash the film & hang it to dry
  • Place the developing tank under running water and wash for at least 3 minutes. Alternatively, you can also fill the tank with water and do 5 inversion cycles, empty and refill the tank with fresh water, and then repeat for 7 times total.
  • Securely hang the film to dry in a dust-free area (e.g. bathroom/shower). It’s good practice to weigh down the bottom of the film strip with a clothespin to prevent the film from curling as it dries.
  • After processing your film, sometimes you may see water spots or residue on your negatives. They are THE WORST. In this video, we share shares how to prevent water spots and how to clean them if they do appear.

Developing B+W film with the Df96 Monobath

Step 1: Mix the chemicals
  • Mix the powdered components (Parts A and B) with water using the TCS-1000 and 1000mL mixing jug. Fully clean the TCS-1000 after mixing. For a closer look at chemical mixing with the TCS-1000.
Step 2: Load the film in the developing tank

  • Film must be loaded in complete darkness. If you don't have a space that can be blacked out, consider purchasing a film changing bag.

Step 3: Measure the temperature of the chemistry and select your developing time + agitation frequency
  • With the required volume of Df96 solution in your mixing jug, insert the TCS-1000 into the jug and measure the temperature.
  • Select your developing time and agitation frequency from one of the three available combinations. See more information on temperature/time/agitation combinations here.
  • Set the first timer on the TCS-1000 to the processing time and the second timer to the washing time (3 minutes).
Step 4: Pour in the solution & agitate the developing tank
  • Pour the chemistry into the tank carefully, but as quickly as possible.
  • Start the first timer on the TSC-1000 and agitate according to the combination you selected. As you continue to re-use the Df96 Monobath solution, you'll have to increase the processing time. See more details on chemical re-use here.
  • At the end of the first timer you'll hear a beep. Pour the solution back into your labelled storage bottle.
Step 5: Wash the film & hang it to dry
  • Place the developing tank under running water and wash for at least 3 minutes. Alternatively, you can also fill the tank with water and do 5 inversion cycles, empty and refill the tank with fresh water, and then repeat for 7 times total.
  • Securely hang the film to dry in a dust-free area (e.g. bathroom/shower). It’s good practice to weigh down the bottom of the film strip with a clothespin to prevent the film from curling as it dries.
  • After processing your film, sometimes you may see water spots or residue on your negatives. They are THE WORST. In this video, we share shares how to prevent water spots and how to clean them if they do appear.
