I've been experimenting with pushing film and Microphen is recommended for this. The sample shots are Ilford HP5+ pushed 5 stops from ISO400 to ISO12800. That did mean developing it for 85 minutes, 1+3 at 24°c. You'll never be able to make posters either these, but it really copes well with pushing and the grain is as under control as you can hope. Really highly recommended.
Use this with all sorts of 400ISO films, and gives excellent results at box speed or pushed. Even helps with those films where manufacturers ISO is a trifle optimistic......
Great developer. Easy to dilute and you can develop up to ten rolls of film. You can use it at box speed with great results I have used it with Ilford Fp4 at 32 asa with pin sharp results using my manual focus nikon 24mm F2.8 ias lens.
My first time with a powder developer and it works great I found using 1+1 is ideal although 1+3 works well but you have a 23 minute development time which seems to be a wee bit long all in all a great developer in my opinion
