At last, a silver recovery device for small darkrooms!
The Silver Magnet (SMT-20) is a unique patented electronic silver recovery module. Simple to install, the unit can recover up to 30+ troy ounces of 90-95% pure silver. Once full, all you need to do is put the unit into the provided leakproof envelope and send it to the refinery. You will then be sent a check for your silver, at market value, and a new cell, if you requested one.
Installing the Silver Magnet will help maximize the environmental safety of your darkroom while also improving the efficiency of your fixer and making you money... all at the same time!

New CineStill 50 Daylight Xpro Film
CineStill is a company that produces still image film from original motion picture emulsions. Following on from their original release of 800Tungsten Xpro C-41 film last year, the company launched a Kickstarter campaign that raised almost $120,000 to produce a medium format film, but fell short of the $360,00 they needed. The founders of CineStill, the Brothers Wright, are continuing to work toward the goal of achieving a new 120 roll film for still photographers.
The latest film from CineStill, 50Daylight Xpro C-41, is a 50 ISO daylight-balanced (5500k) 35mm film created from original fresh Kodak 50D stock, a film that Kodak itself claims to be the "the world's finest grain film". As with their previous 800Tungsten stock, CineStill's rem-jet "Premoval" makes this motion picture (ECN2) film safe to process in standard C-41 photo lab machines or at home and is ideal for scanning.
