My first attempt at developing made easy

I bought this kit after watching the Ilford Youtube video. It is an easy way to try out developing and I am delighted with my first ever home developed negatives.

Excellent for the beginner

I mentioned in another review about using the Ilford Simplicity Starter Pack to develop 2 rolls of Kentmere Pan 100 and I'm glad I chose to use it. I am a total novice at developing film and needed an easy method that didn't involve trying to remember hc110 lc29 or whatever other combination of letters and numbers are used for developing. The Ilford Simplicity Starter Pack is colour coded and simply labelled Developer, Stop, Fixer and Wetting agent, all you have to do is get the water to the right temperature, mix them with the right amount of water and keep your eye on the clock. Loading film onto the reels in a bag is the hard bit. If you are looking at giving home developing a try, start with the Ilford Simplicity Starter Pack. You can't go wrong.

Makes developing easy!

This is the perfect kit for a complete beginner. Used this to develop my first roll ever, and it turned out great! Easy to use. The only downside is that there are no instructions, everything is found online. A little paper booklet would be great.
