    Pretty good

    My only departure to date from DDX and I was generally very happy with the end result, I still prefer the punch of DDX but this was still pretty darn good. I will definitely use again!

    This was the first chemicals I've ever used to develop my own film & I have to say it was really simple. The results that came out were great & the step by step instructions provided by Cinestill were invaluable. Awesome stuff!

    Easy Black and White developing

    I havent processed film in decades but was attracted by the simplicity of a one stop process at not far off room temp. The instructions were reasonably clear and the result was outstanding to my eye on a film of FP4. I made it slightly more complicated by making up only the volume I needed so am hoping the remaining unmixed chemical keeps! If so the product is great value too.

    What more could you need

    I tend to use this developer with Eastman doubleX (or Cinestill BWXX), but also any other b&w film that arrives in the wonderful brown boxes from a certain wonderland. Since the developer was made for (as far as I’m aware) Eastman DoubleX it’s pretty much perfect; it gives fine grain, it’s super quick (I can be in and out of my darkroom in 15 minutes), with minimal fuss or anything else. And at £20 for 16+ rolls it’s great value.

    Unless you’re very picky about getting specific developing results, you’re probably using something more technical than this anyway.

    Amazing for First Time Developers!

    I had never developed any film before using this and it was a great introductory developer! The fact it was a monolith was so useful and really simplified the whole process, making it less intimidating for me. Really easy to use and gave me amazing black and white shots!! (The colours on the film were my fault completely (the solution got shook and bubbled - but I love how they turned out! Beginner's luck I guess haha)
