Photographers' Formulary 02-0080 overview

  • 1Description

Photographers Formulary 130 Paper Developer is a superb black & white paper developer that produces a full scale of rich blacks. The developer has an excellent shelf life, high capacity and is very suitable for batch processing. The prints obtained with 130 are surpassed only by the Amidol developers. However, 130 is much more pleasant to work with. This box makes 2 liters of stock solution.

The chemicals in Formulary 130 are used to make 2 liters of stock solution, which is diluted 1:1 with water to make the working solution.
The stock solution is stable up to 6 months
A capacity of about 50 - 8 x 10" prints can be expected for 1 liter of working solution

Photographers' Formulary 02-0080 reviews

130 Developer for Black & White Paper (Makes 2 Liters) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think this will replace my Dektol I mixed it up into 2 dilutions, 1:1 and stock and used both. With Ilford paper I don't see much difference between dilutions but with Oriental paper I had problems with staining with the stock dilution. That being said, it gives better tones and detail especially in the highlights than I ever saw with Dektol. Mixing is a pain, I would wear gloves and a mask from the time you open the plastic bag the box comes in until it is a liquid and you have cleaned up and sealed any residual powders. I wound up sealing the box and all the little bags even the instructions in a zip lock before disposing of it. I made myself a little sick handling it before mixing it without gloves and mask.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PF 130 The PF 130 has a long tray life 24+ hours.� �In my well illuminated darkroom with 2 Premier Red filtered� 5x7 safelights� I use� 25 and 40 watt clear� tubular bulbs + assorted "Brownie" safelights for observing the print's images emerge.� �I only use graded paper (no contrast filters) so� I can have have a bright� red darkroom environment� so "peak" development can really be seen on llford� Ilfospeed� #2 resin paper. (wish� it was still available in 11x14 size).� The print then goes in a water tray (no stop bath) for further development� of the shadows� before fixing in regular Kodak powder fix......The best prints come out on PF� 130 (formerly Ansco 130)� paper developer (nothing else comes close!) I have been doing Amateur� printing for only 60 of my 76 years,� so what do I know????� � � � �Mark Reever in Colorado.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but misleading description I purchased this product thinking that it would give me 4 liters of stock solution. It does not. It only gives you 2 liters of stock and you can get 2 or 4 liters of working solution depending on your dilution. I have to see if the shelf life is as long as described but it is odorless and has been working great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long working solution life I've just started developing my own B&W prints at home, so I have no other developer experience to compare to. I like the results this developer gives me though. It develops to completion quickly with RC papers I've tried and gives a very pleasing tonal scale. The main reason I chose 130 over more common options like Dektol is because of the reputed long tray life. While I won't be leaving this out in a tray for extended periods, I tend to print small amounts on an irregular basis. Being able to put the working solution back into a bottle and continue using it for my next printing session, even if that might be a couple of weeks later, is a deciding factor here. So far, after a couple of weeks, with a handful of short printing sessions, I'm still seeing good activity. The developer is darkening somewhat, but clearly still works. I have about 10-15 8x10 sheets through it so far. The only real downside is the mixing, which has to be done from multiple packages of chemicals, one at a time. This is somewhat less convenient than liquid concentrates or all in one powder mixes, but it's not something I'll have to do often, so not a big deal. If the idea of having to do this is off-putting you may want to try something else.
