Favorite!

I use it to develop my 4x5 films. I love the very small grain and flexibility in developing. Also good shelf life.

limited use developer

I have used a lot of films with this film developer and in my experience it only works well with one: Tmax 100. With every other film it produces mediocre results at best, and it is particularly poor with 400 speed films. But if you only plan on using one film ever (Tmax 100) it will work great! That is why I am giving it 2 stars instead of one.

Great developer

By

consistent results every time. I have used it with Tmax-100, Superfine 400 and Ilford 3200. long shelf life after mixing. you'll need a two gallon container, or 2 one gallon containers to hold the solution.

Nice all round developer. gives consistent results every time. makes 5 liters so you will need a larger storage container than one gallon

my go to developer for most films

By

I like Xtol,it is my all around go to developer. I use for most of my films. It works well for most films, I like the results. You can also use it at different dilutions as well. I would recommend making the stock solution with distilled water. I have found it keeps very well. I do use argon or nitrogen gas to displace the air, but it keeps fine without. The only complaint I have is that it makes 5 liters. I have gallon jugs so I have to keep the rest in another jug. You should buy a 5 liter jug to store your stock solution. You can also use some computer duster spray to keep out the air. I would recommend Xtol to anyone who runs their own film. Great for schools too.

Great developer if you follow guidelines

By

This stuff gets a bad reputation for going dead without any visual warnings. I've never experienced this but I follow the usage guidelines very closely and don't use it after it's been sitting for a month. I generally use 2-3gal/yr processing up to 30 rolls/gal. I use it 1+1; one shot. I get my dev times from [@] and have been very happy with the results.

My standard film developer

By

Works great for tray, reel, & motorized processing. I like the grain structure, even on 16x20 prints from 4x5 film.

Great stuff!

By

Xtol is great. I use it straight most of the time as directed, but it is also good for shooting Ilford's Delta 100 at ISO 250. Use it 1:1 @ 70 degrees F for 12:15 minutes. Agitate five seconds every 30.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  can you mix a little at a time?
MICHAEL L  Yes you can. You need to be careful and mix the amount that you need for your working solution in the same proportion (water to to chemical) as the entire package. I usually mix some solutions in 1 liter bottles from 5 liter chem packages.
