Another new developer for me and when I find a new developer I’m usually excited to see how different films react to it. And to make it even. Let’s say i have 1 litre of Microphen stock solution, and i can use it for 10 films. My film developing tank takes only litre, so i should poor While I do experiment with other developers often (Golden Bullet Syndrome), Microphen is my consistent favorite. I use Ilford FP4 (EI) and.

The characteristics of this developer can’t be found in any Kodak alternative, so if you want some of the finest looking results in push processing, try this stuff with a ilfor speed film or a speed film at There is just no other product on the market speed increasing fine grain developer that is so easy to use.
Refer to the data sheet for more information regarding times for speed increasing. Overall I was really happy with this developer, and will certainly use it again especially if I do a project that would be best done on Pan F.

Then there is the odd case where you find a film and developer combination that just looks like pure magic. You can reliably increase by two stops, but sacrifice some of the fine grain properties of this good all round developer. IMO this gives smoother and finer grain. I didn’t care for the results at 1: I used this to push Tri-x to and Grain size is reduced and grain clumping is prevented because of the low alkalinity of the developer. Midtone gradation is excellent and the developer helps prevent blown highlights.
Tri-X can be developed to a higher contrast within usual limits. So for slow and medium speed films I chose to shoot at box speed, while faster films I went and did some pushing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Best developer out there. It is working well I always use manual settings and measure exposure for the mid-tones; I also overexpose one stop ; I tried Kodak Tmax developer and Ilford ID11 and and like Microphen more.

Grains that, in my experience, unless the enlargements are 11 x 14 or bigger, are negligible. The TMX negs came out just fine. Does anyone use it as their normal developer? HairyHippy Posted 4 years ago. It’s great and convenient.
It really helps smooth out the grain and gives really good contrast. Place your order by 5pm Wed Jan 2 and your order will ship the same day. That is, there is a speed increase while giving the type of grain associated with a standard developer.
I vouch by this product! All in all, it delivers the goods as promised.

It could be decanted off or strained out, I suppose. Oh, I suppose it could be done with continuous agitation – never tried this.
Much better for pushing than D in my experience. While I do experiment with other developers often Golden Bullet SyndromeMicrophen is my consistent favorite. Large expanses of same-toned areas such as skies are virtually grainless, as you’d expect from TMX.
Thank you, i’ll definitely give it a try on both, stock and diluted. Also great for push processing. Overview Discussions Photos Members Map.
