The Ilford Simplicity Starter Kit is the best place to start learning developing!

A box containing just enough chemicals to develop, stop, fix and wash 2 x 35mm films or 1 x 120 roll, for a simple introduction to B&W film developing.

The four single-use sachets included:

  • Film Developer - creates the image on the negative
  • Film Stop (Ilfostop) - stops the developing chemical reaction
  • Ilford Rapid Fixer - removes any remaining light-sensitive chemicals so the image won't degrade over time
  • Ilfotol Wetting Agent - makes the water glide off the film to reduce waterspots

For developing times across multiple films please check the MassiveDevChart here


Form: Concentrated liquid in sachets
Size: n/a
Capacity: 2 rolls (35mm) or 1 (120)
Perfect for: Learning to develop!

Just do it

The joy I got from developing my first rolls of film was such that all I can say to anyone on the fence, just do it!

simple is as simple does

As a beginner to the world of home developing (and film photography in general), this pack was a great way to get started. As the pouches contain small amounts, it's a great way to try it out, and see if you like it. The developer pouch will do 2 x 35mm rolls, as will the stop bath and fixer, but those latter two can be re-used several times, so keep them in an air tight container :p If you want to do more, pick up more developer and get to work :) I've done a couple of rolls using this pack, and the negatives look really clear and sharp. Unfortunately, my scanning capabilities aren't up to scratch, so the attached photo doesn't do it justice >_< It's made me excited to figure out how to get better scans so I can do something with my photos :)

My first attempt at developing made easy

I bought this kit after watching the Ilford Youtube video. It is an easy way to try out developing and I am delighted with my first ever home developed negatives.


Here is a photo adjacent to my review.

Excellent for the beginner

I mentioned in another review about using the Ilford Simplicity Starter Pack to develop 2 rolls of Kentmere Pan 100 and I'm glad I chose to use it. I am a total novice at developing film and needed an easy method that didn't involve trying to remember hc110 lc29 or whatever other combination of letters and numbers are used for developing. The Ilford Simplicity Starter Pack is colour coded and simply labelled Developer, Stop, Fixer and Wetting agent, all you have to do is get the water to the right temperature, mix them with the right amount of water and keep your eye on the clock. Loading film onto the reels in a bag is the hard bit. If you are looking at giving home developing a try, start with the Ilford Simplicity Starter Pack. You can't go wrong.
