Kodak D-76 Developer is a classic multi-use black & white film developer.

D-76 provides full emulsion speed and excellent shadow detail with normal contrast, and produces fine grain with a variety of continuous-tone black-and-white films.

For greater sharpness, but with a slight increase in graininess, you can use a 1:1 dilution of this developer.

It yields a long density range, and its development latitude allows push processing with relatively low fog.

Yields full emulsion speed and good shadow detail with normal contrast.
For general use.
Moderately fine grain, excellent development latitude.
Replenish with KODAK PROFESSIONAL Replenisher D-76R.
For normal or push processing.

          I needed to develop black & white film. Went with something easy and time tested. I like the Sprint System too, but this was much cheaper.

            Good old Kodak chemistry. Developed 9 roll of film in one day. Used my old darkroom guide "wonder wheel" for temp and dev times. Follow the mixing instructions and you can't go wrong.

                D-76 gives me consistent results regardless of what film I use. I only mix enough to do a set amount of film and this seems to work great for me. B&H has always fulfilled my orders expeditiously. Win Win with both.

                    I bought a packet of D-76 after getting back into film photography. It's just as I remember it from 20 years ago: easy to use, predictable results and usable for a wide variety of B&W films. The mixing instructions are on the package and easy to follow. You won't go wrong with D-76.

                                          The standard in black and white developing. I use this one-shot, diluted one part stock solution to one part water and get consistent results. I've run Tri-X, Ilford Pan F+ and Ilford HP5+ through it.

                                          The stock solution needs to be stored in airtight containers, with as little air as possible, otherwise storage life will be significantly shorter. I keep mine in a set of 8oz bottles and get 16 rolls per packet, 8oz per roll. Kodak states 6 months shelf life for the stock solution; my last batch was still good after 5 months.
