Another option of contrast control is to use two-bath development. The Leitz two-bath developer as given in The Ilford Manual Of Photography (1958) is of similar composition to D-23. Solution A; Metol 5g Sodium sulphite, anhydrous 100g Water to make 1 litre. Solution B; Sodium sulphite, anhydrous 6g...

Ken Keen.

This is a short film about a photographer who is nearly completely blind, but still taking photographs and making his own prints.

Re: Increasing Exposure Latitude in B&W 35mm film

Barry Thorton was a fan of Ilford Perceptol which uses Metol as the only developing agent. When diluted 1+3, Perceptol will give the results that Ornello has already mentioned.
Err towards the generous side with film exposure with this developer.

I have not tried any of his products personally, but he seems to have a large array of specialist processes for sale on his website and there are plenty of images of his work on Flickr along with technical details there.

Re: Anyone tried the new 'Promicrol'?

Re: Anyone tried the new 'Promicrol'?

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, Champion Promicrol sold as a liquid concentrate is a totally different formula altogether from the original May & Baker Promicrol formula. Even if you can still get the HEAP-Sulphate (Atomal) developing agent, I have to ask what you think it can do that newer fo...

Re: Kodak BW400CN.

I have used XP2 Super before out of curiosity, but it's not to my liking. There are some people who like it though.

I much prefer regular films like FP4, HP5 and Tri-X.
