KANTON DX35 – analog film development made easy. Thomas J.Müller has designed a concept device to develop your color films (including black and white) in both 35 and 120mm without the need of a darkroom. It sounds pretty cool, doesn’t it?
Nowadays, developing films at home can be time consuming and highly unreliable in the term of result. Keep in mind that you would need a dark room, a developing tank, and several chemicals that you need to heat in on a stove or sink. It’s not finish yet, that set of tank still needs to be continually agitated to get a good result, very impractical.
KANTON DX35 is a smart device that includes a daylight tank that allows you to put in the exposed film under bright light conditions, the agitation process is automated to make sure a steady developing process.
Designer : Thomas J.Müller
All chemicals are being heated and monitored without the need for sturdy cables and with a precision of 0,1-degree C. Simply adjust the reel where you put the film, select a setting from the database and wait for those chemicals to reach the desired temperature. Wait for about 15 minutes for the process to finish, you will be prompted with to pour chemicals inside the tank and back into the bottle. Once it’s done, you can wash your film with tap water, take it out of the reel and use the hangers to hang it dry.
After that, you can continue working with your perfectly developed negatives. There’s a small scanner that you can use to digitalize the images for online posts or small printouts. Inside KANTON DX35, there’s a knife that allows for a precise, fast, and easy cutting of the film in order to keep it safe and secure.
