• ILFORD MICROPHEN is a fine grain film developer which gives an effective increase in film speed. A speed increase of up to half a stop can be achieved with most films but with faster films such as HP5 Plus, Delta 400 Professional and Delta 3200 Professional it is more. Many developers that give an increase in film speed usually produce a corresponding increase in grain size, MICROPHEN is formulated to overcome this disadvantage, the low alkalinity of the developer reduces grain size and grain clumping. Therefore MICROPHEN is said to have a high speed/grain ratio, i.e. it gives a speed increase while retaining much of the grain characteristics associated with fine grain developers.
• MICROPHEN is particularly useful when using extended development times to push process fast films such as HP5 Plus, Delta 400 Professional, Delta 3200 Professional and SFX200.

This was exactly what I needed. For a first time film developer, the results turned out great! Better than most mini labs in my area anyway... The process was a little confusing at first as the directions that came with were less than stellar for a first timer such as myself, but that was easily rectified by one google search.
Good quality, consistent product. Good for pros and student alike.
