Which 35mm Developer is Right for You?

  1. I hated mixing D76 and Microdol (and Kodak fixer), the powder sometimes blew around when we poured it in. plew So we had to mix it in the classroom or better yet, outside.
    And we sometimes had trouble getting the powder to disolve into solution, so we used warmer water than what was on the instructions.

    HC-110 was neater and easier to mix.
     
  2. It still is ;)
     
  3. The long shelf life of HC110 concentrate makes sense for occasional users. Back in the day when I processed film every day or two I could always use up D-76 (or Microdol-X or DK-50) long before it went bad.
    If one lives in an area where it is difficult to get D-76 it is possible to mix it from raw ingredients.
