    Kodak 5160361 reviews

    Professional XTOL Black and White Film Developer (to Make 5 l) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 47.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite B/W Developer I can't say enough about how much I love Xtol. I am forced bu circumstances to use other B/W developers and I always wish I had Xtol. I tend to use it diluted 1:3 and, because the two components are in decent quantities, I mix stock from 1/2 or even 1/4 of the package. The remaining dry chemicals keep much better than mixed developer although the mixed solution keeps at least 2 months if stored properly. I mix full strength and dilute just prior to use. Negatives come out sharp and with very little grain. Images are not particularly contrasty which preserves the maximum amount of detail in both highlights and shadows and can easily be increased in the printing process. Tip: Wash your film in developing temp water before pouring in developer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Developer Taste in developer is subjective. That being said the results I like best always seem to be produced by XTOL. For me it consistently produces finer grain and can be used with a wide variety of film. I use it with Kodak T-Max, Tri-X, Ilford Delta, Pan F, and HP5+. I routinely use it to push HP5 3 stops and Delta 400 2 stops with great results. It also has a great shelf life. It takes about a year for me to use a 5 liter batch and I see no negative effects.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If I only had one b/w developer... This is my favorite developer. It never fails me. Stores well. Gives a great tonal range (if you got the exposure right). Doesn't raise grain in finer grained film. It is a pain to mix. Be REALLY careful to hit the temperature in the instructions and completely dissolve Part A before adding Part B. Really let it sit a while and look for tiny un-dissolved particles. Keep shaking it until it's really completely dissolved. It works well stock but gives beautiful results up to 1:4. In fact, I prefer it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from XTOL Super T-Grain Developer for T-Max 100 and delta 100 XTOL is better than D76 When Developing T- Grain Films Like Kodak T-Max 100 and Delta 100 I could Never get a Dektal RC print as clear and as Sharp and Zone type of Development 8x10 a True ASA 100 dynamic range I have many Developers have been developing and printing from My College CPC days and my Home since 1991 and I also do C-41 and ra4 processing. I do have a personal Home Pro Lab So I am Telling you This Developer is a T-Grain Film Super developer better than T-Max developer and D76

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Economical Developer I don't develop lots of black and white film so 5 liters is more than I can use before it would go bad. So even though Kodak does not recommend it, I mix one liter at a time. I use a precision balance scale to measure 1/5 of part A and part B by weight. So far it has worked great for me. Also once mixed and stored in airtight bottles, the developer stays good for months.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best developer for BW film! Xtol is my favorite developer for black-and-white film. I get lower contrast than D76 (better for scanning), smooth gradations, good shadow and highlights. It's basically self-exhausting, too, so it's hard to overdevelop. Since I work overseas, it's good to have a developer that's not very sensitive to questionable water supplies, heat, etc.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent! I have just started using XTOL on Tmax 100 Professional and Ilford HP5 film. I really am pleased with the results - good tone separation, fine grain, high accutance and it doesn't stain (I have to use the bathroom for developing and appreciate this quality). The results are as good or better than what I got with HC 110 which I used for years. The only drawback is the packages make 1.5 liters - an odd amount. 1 gallon would have been better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Consistent and LESS TOXIC I love Xtol because it is really consistent, stores really well (if you follow the instructions) and is far less toxic than other traditional B&W developers. I don't worry so much about my health using it and I also don't worry about pouring it into the drain. It can be a bit difficult to mix at first but it is worth the effort.
