Great for pushing

When I am looking to seriously push film, I choose Microphen. I can do it with ID-11 or others, but Microphen is designed with push processing in mind and it shows in the grain. I regularly shoot in a music club and at night, often Ilford HP5+ at 1600ISO or faster. Microphen is exactly what I need. Like ID-11 it comes as two powders that you dissolve one after the other. That makes for cheaper postage and longer shelf life before it's mixed.

Excellent developer

This is a great developer, I have used it for many years. Usually I use it at 1:1 dilution which provides consistency from film to film. Adjusting times as per the instructions gives opportunity for boosting film speed. Even used for increasing film speed the developer delivers fine grain and wide contrast. All in all a flexible straightforward to use good developer. It remains my "go to" brew! I have use it successfully with HP5+, FP4+, Pan F+, Adox CHS, Kentmere films and others. Highly recommended developer

Great for pushing

It's the first developer I used and I stuck with it because it's easy to use, cheap and produces great results, even if pushed to 6400.

easy to use fine grain developer

This does exactly what it claims. Produces very fine grain and sharp negatives with relatively low contrast. For that reason it is best used on slow speed film. I have processed fomapan 200 in this and had outstanding results. I process films in a stock solution, which can be re-used a lot, though you can dilute it down for one-shot developing. I have used my stock solution 6 times now and its still going strong.

It is really easy to mix. Two sachets of powder in a litre of water and thats it. Shelf life of made up chemical is reasonable if stored in a dark bottle.
