A good and inexpensive developer with reasonable development times for most films giving good contrast. It's reusability when used un-diluted makes it very economical without any noticeable reduction in quality.

Alex Mandache

Really good how you can develop multiple black and white films with this I am hoping to do some more soon unfortunately it cannot develop all films and you need to find times on the massive drive chart but is really budget friendly and easy to use
