Fine for bulk/school developing


from NC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The standard stuff, reliable and priced fairly. I hope Kodak continues to manufacture it. Also wish Adorama would send large orders in sensible shipments. I ordered 50 packs and had three shipments (owing to their stock/inventory I guess); one of which was 2 packs... a total waste of shipping resources.


D76, Hope Kodak does not go way


from Du NCrham  -  Photo Enthusiast

Good developer, Use it for tmax and tri x All ways know what to expect. Have used since 1977


Good Old Stand-by


from Largo, MD  -  Pro Photographer

I needed this developer for a photography class at a community college. We normally use Sprint Cemistry but ran out and needed this in a hurry. Adorama shipped this out really quickly and the class was saved.


Excellent product.


from Hudson, MA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Mixes easily. Performs beyond expectations consistently.

D-76 is the standard for B&W developer


from Croton on Hudson, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

D-76 is the standard black and white developer. Works with just about any B&W film (except maybe high contrast microfilm and other unusual applications). Tri-X 400 mix 1+1 at 75 F. for 7:45 minutes. Really nice tones, contrast and grain. Simple to mix, just follow instructions. Lasts well in the bottle. If you are starting out, you can't go wrong with D-76 and you may never need to try anything else.


The old stand by!


from Upstate New York  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Inexpensive, easy to mix and use, and produces reliably excellent results.


just like it should be.

Our high school art program includes traditional black and white photography classes. This is the product we use with our students to develop their film. We get consistant results and that is important!
