    Simplicity really is that easy !

    Not just for beginners, these sachets of Ilfosol 3, (yep, that's what's in there), are just great if you just need some developer in a hurry. Just pop the bag into water at 20 degrees to warm up add to 540ml (at 20c) of water and you're away.
    Ilfosol 3 is great all purpose very reliable developer, good for revealing the true characteristics of a film as it doesn't refine the grain or add much in the way of additional sharpness. A forgiving developer that works well even if you're a bit off with the time and temperature. I would say it's best used with slow or medium speed films, typically I'd use it with FP4+ or Foma 100/200. That said I've attached a recent image taken on Rollei Retro 400s as it was the only developer that I had handy.... Great presentation, easy to use, great results shame about the plastic waste.

    Makes developing easy and quick

    Although a little more expensive than buying bulk these kits make the process quick and easy. An all round developer and very suitable for beginners.

    I don't shoot a lot of film so this is great for me. It does cost a bit more, however, it means that there is no wastage.

    An easy to use system of chemicals that have proven to be very effective. Film development with the minimum of fuss.
