The JOBO UniTank 1520 is the workhorse of the JOBO processing range.
It is comparable to the Paterson Universal tank for agitation-based home developing, although with an increased capacity so that it can take:
- 8 x 110 films or
- 2 x 35mm films or
- 2 x 120 films or
- 1 x 220 film
Please note that only one reel is supplied with the UniTank 1520 - you will need extra reels to utilise the full capacity.
The other significant difference is that is can fit into the modular JOBO rotary system for a highly-efficient developing system.

I’ve tried them all. AP Tanks, Patterson, Nikon Steel reel tanks. But none of them have been this good
The ability to fit 2 120 rolls of film onto one reel is just mind blowing, has sped up my workflow progress so much, and in a much neater packet too.
I’d also like to add that these reels are the easiest reels to load film onto. The Patterson ones are a nightmare in comparison
The negatives I’ve received from this tank are also perfectly. Using constant agitation im getting perfect results, whether that be C41 or Black and white developing ( I have supplied some samples below :)
I would recommend this tank to anyone, whether you’re a newbie to developing or experienced. Jobo truly are the best :)
The reel is great, as you can load two rolls of 120 film onto the same reel. I also bought a JoBo 1502 reel for developing 110 film which works well.
It feels robust and sturdy, and has a lid that can be popped inwards so that if pressure builds up it won't burst the lid open it will pop the indent on the lid back into it's original position. You can also buy upgrades for rotary development, although I have no need for that.
I've developed a fair few rolls with this tank, and it still looks brand new. Highly recommend it, despite being more expensive
I found it much easier to load the reels compared to the reels that come with the Paterson system, and the lid feels a lot more confident.
