excellent developer

My favourite Ilford developers seem to be unobtainable at present so I have started using Fomadon. It can bemused at 1:1 dilution which I find is helpful in maintaining consistency. Using HP5+ Seem to get results very similar to D76/ID11 so Imagery happy. I would heartily recommend this developer.

Great reintroduction to analogue

I spent the first 14 years of my life as a professional medical photographer and for a time really did think that analogue was going to die. I've now started to discover the artistic possibilities of analogue and have broken out all my old cameras again. Such a relief to find AW with their reasonably priced products including this developer. Brought the old days back for me mixing this - very easy to do and very happy with the results, especially as I can now teach my 12 year old son about analogue photography. Thank you for making this possible AW.

Best Value when used with Foma films-especially low ISO in medium and large format

This is a very good and economical developer if you are just starting out in photography or even if you are long standing. It produces (though I've never tried it for this long) about 10 films to my knowledge.
I would like to thank and recommend Analogue Wonderland, as this is the cheapest you can buy Fomadon Excel anywhere in the UK - I've checked! £4.50 a bag plus postage is great- even if you only develop 5 or 6 rolls you've still made a massive saving.
The only problem I've found is that the images are fairly grainy compared to some developers, so a low speed film shot in open daylight is very much preferred. I shot this on some 9x12cm large format Foma film last summer (ISO 100) and it produced stunning portraits, capable of big enlargements- even at 8x10 the grain is scarcely noticeable.

P.S. Forgive the marks on the image- it's just my scanner.

Great with Fomapan

I use Fomapan in 5x4 and I’ve tried several developers before settling on Fomadon Excel as my preferred developer for Fomapan 100, 200 and 400. It gives me good looking negatives with a full range of tones and has proven to be very reliable with all three film stocks.

Don’t be put off by the “beginner” tag, this is a very capable developer in my experience and used as stock I get 12 rolls of film developed with a single packet of powder which represents very good value for money too.

In short, a reliable and well-priced developer which in my experience works particularly well with Fomapan emulsions in both 120 and 5x4.
