Having in recent years gone back to doing more analogue photography I started off using Ilfotec DDX liquid concentrate developer which is very good. The problem though with DDX is it's limited shelf life. I then started using ID11 which is powder form and in that state it has almost unlimited shelf life. It's proven be very good developing Ilford HP5+ film with a fine grain. It's enabled me to use HP5 as my 'go to' film. I can now buy a couple of boxes so I know I've always got some in stock and just make it up when needed. I commonly use it diluted 1+3 for an economical solution to my developing needs.
This is easy to use, consistent and predictable....what more do you need? I use it at stock dilution and it provides fast accurate development on a huge variety of emulsions. VERY economical to use and so simple!
Haven't been in my darkroom for many years so my chemicals had all expired. Having just used a 27 year old bw film in one of my vintage Canon"s, I wanted to try a powder developer for a change. This product worked great on my very expired Ilford film although a mistake by me loading the film into the spiral meant only 10 frames eventually came out. Nice contrast and very forgiving on my old film. Will be using again when I experiment with a roll of 120 soon!
Mix both parts for 1 litre of Dev that can be used 20 times (2 x 500 ml bottles mixed). Each bottle can be used 10 times with the appropriate time adjustment but only really good for developing a lot of films in a month or so as doesn’t keep for long when mixed and must be all mixed at once.
Good for developing 35mm in 2 roll batches.
I used this developer for my first time developing black and white film at home. It was easy to use, and I found the results of using it with my Kentmere 100 and expired Tmax 100 films really good. I would recommend this to anyone starting out in black and white developing at home.
