Our friends at The Film Photography Project have crafted for you their FPP D96 black and white negative developer powder in handy packages that makes 3.8L of developer when mixed with water.

NB: as always you will also need FIXER to develop your film - not included

Long considered the go-to BW developer for the motion picture industry, D96 is a highly adaptable lower contrast film developer that enables you to increase the contrast by increasing your developing time or agitation.

This developer has a very long life, when you mix the gallon, you can store it on a one 4L jug OR store it in 4 1L bottles. If you store in 4 bottles, as you use it and the contrast begins to lower, start a second fresh bottle, and save the first one for extremely contrasty lighting or films. FPP recommend using it as a stock developer, use it without diluting and pour it back into your quart container for re-use.



Form: Powder
Chemistry: B&W
Size: 3.8L
Capacity: 50 rolls +
Perfect for: Fine-tuning the contrast of B&W negatives



FPP is short-hand for the Film Photography Project: a US-based collection of projects headed up by the charismatic Mike Raso. They are most famous within the global film community for their podcast (entering it's 10th year in existence) as well as the associated School Camera Donation Program whereby donations are sought and sorted to bring analogue photography back into high schools and colleges all over the country. Not only that but Mike also runs the FPP store which sells a multitude of analogue film products all over the US and hand-rolls a fantastic selection of unique films. We are honoured to bring some of those films to the European market and hope you enjoy shooting them as much as Mike has making them!

Cinematic goodness

I've been using this developer with Eastman Double X motion picture film (rated at ISO 200) and the results have been excellent. My method has been different to the one suggested by the FPP and after 11 rolls I'm still getting consistent results. I've been re-using 1 litre as stock solution and replacing 70ml with fresh stock for every roll I've developed.
Previously I was using the liquid D96 from Bellini Photo but found that after 7 rolls through the 1 litre of stock solution the contrast and density of my negatives started to drop and it only came in a 1 lire kit so there was nothing to replenish with.

Industry standard

Great product & does exactly as described. Used with 30+ rolls of 7222 BW. We have a pretty contrast-y image having pushed to 800ASA. Kodak suggest 9mins at 21oC with D96 to achieve what we want. With their help, depending on what we shot, we’re developing between 9-11 mins for pushing two stops and it’s a great look, capturing lots of detail. At 9mins our scanner said it lacked in density a little, so we’ve gone for 11 and it’s working great. Going to replenish 70ml per roll like review below suggested and we’ll see how it goes. 3.9L perfect for replenishing the 1.9L we need for our Lomo tank too.
