Analog photography is getting more popular again nowadays at the same time as professional film services keeps disappearing. The only alternative is developing the negatives at home which can be time consuming and unreliable in the outcome, especially when it comes to color negatives. There is still an undeniable feeling to analog images which makes them worth preserving in a digital era. Having faced the struggle of using diy solutions on my own I developed a device which precisely heats both film and chemicals while making a bulky dark room unnecessary. It consists of a base station with heating elements, the user interface, three clearly labeled bottles and a developer tank. The film can be put inside the tank during bright daylight and is winded onto a reel inside automatically thus simplifies the developing process tremendously. The project is still ongoing while I am in contact with possible investors.
