JOBO Lab Kit - Large
NB: price includes free UK Tracked Shipping!
The JOBO Lab Kit L (Large) has everything you need to get started processing your own 35mm and Roll (120) black & white films inside the JOBO Tank 1540 at home. Now including chemicals!*
The JOBO LAB Kit L allows you to develop 35mm film and roll film (120) inside the JOBO Tank 1540.
It is a significant upgrade to the JOBO Medium Kit - allowing you to process more rolls of film with greater consistency! This is thanks to a larger developing tank (the 1540 model), larger scaled bottles (1L instead of 600ml) and the inclusion of JOBO's custom manual roller base. The roller base matches with the 1540 tank to allow for rotation developing that uses less chemistry than inversion and delivers more consistent results.
*While stocks last
Two reels 1501 (included) can be fitted inside the 1540 Tank. This means that two 35mm films or 120 films can be developed at the same time. You can also purchase extra reels to develop 4 x 35mm films at once inside the 1540 tank.
The red clip prevents the films from overlapping. The cascade film washer allows for economical and efficient rinsing. Your black & white film reaches archival standard within just 5 minutes of rinsing.
The included JOBO graduates allow the user to precisely measure chemistry/ liquids and the the two scaled bottles included ensure proper storage of developer and fixer chemistry.
Make sure your chemistry is at the optimum temperature for your needs (normally 20o) using the JOBO precise thermometer. The kits film clips are great for hanging your prized film so it hangs perfectly straight whilst it dries.
The 1500 JOBO tank system is a highly modular, efficient, and economical roll film processing system - so it can scale with your home developing needs.
What is Rotary Processing?
Rotary film processing uses the JOBO 1540 tank and roller base to develop the same number of films but using less chemistry and with less variation.
The tank is laid on its side, on top of the roller base, and gently rotated throughout the developing process. This means that you only need enough chemistry to cover the bottom 'half' of the tank at any one time, and you don't need to worry about over- or under-agitating the film through the process.

How Does the Bundled Developing Work?
To make your analogue adventures even easier (and cheaper!) we’ve implemented the option to pre-pay for your processing when you buy your film. This means that you choose your developing and scanning options on this page, via the little tick-box above, and add everything to basket for an immediate 10% saving on all processing costs.
Your film will be dispatched in line with our usual shipping times (full details here) and you will also get an email with instructions on sending the film back to the WonderLab (with tracked shipping - on us!)
When you have shot the film - whether that takes you a day, month or year - you generate the free tracked postage label by following the simple instructions from the email, and pop it in the post with a note of your original order number. We’ll do the rest!
So buy the bundle and relax into the shooting process, knowing that you’ll get to see the final results from your photography, without having to reach for your wallet again.
We send all parcels via TRACKED service - free in the UK for orders of film over £50.
This means that when you buy your film from us you will be emailed a tracking link at dispatch, and will be able to follow your parcel’s journey all the way to safe arrival.
Please note that it is not a signed service so you won’t need to be at home to receive your film, and our letterbox-friendly boxes fit through the vast majority of European letterboxes!
You will have different shipping options and costs at checkout, depending on how quickly you need your film. Please refer to the Delivery Details page for full information
