Ilford 35mm Film Cassette Opener

Ilford SIMPLICITY Starter Pack

Containing all of the necessary chemistry for developing black and white film, the SIMPLICITY Starter Pack from Ilford contains pre-measured portions of four concentrated chemicals to produce working solutions for processing one roll of 120 or two rolls of 35mm film in a two-reel, 600mL developing tank.

SIMPLICITY Film Developer

Film developer sachet contains 60mL of ILFOSOL 3 concentrate, which is then mixed with 540mL of water (1+9 dilution) at temperature to create a 600mL working solution for developing one roll of 120 or two rolls of 35mm film in a two-reel, 600mL developing tank.

ILFOSOL 3 is characterized by its ability to produce fine grain results with high sharpness and full film speed, and it is particularly well-suited for use with medium-speed films.

SIMPLICITY Stop Bath

Stop bath sachet contains 30mL of ILFOSTOP concentrate, which is then mixed with 570mL of water (1+19 dilution) at temperature to create a 600mL working solution for processing one roll of 120 or two rolls of 35mm film in a two-reel, 600mL developing tank.

ILFOSTOP is a low odor, citric acid-based stop bath that stops the development process and helps to prolong the life and activity of the fixer solution. It is recommended to ensure accurate development times.

SIMPLICITY Film Fixer

Fixer sachet contains 100mL of RAPID FIXER concentrate, which is then mixed with 500mL of water (1+5 dilution) at temperature to create a 600mL working solution for processing one roll of 120 or two rolls of 35mm film in a two-reel, 600mL developing tank.

RAPID FIXER is a rapid-acting, non-hardening fixer that should not be used with any hardeners.

SIMPLICITY Wetting Agent

Wetting agent sachet contains 25mL of ILFOTOL, of which two cap-fulls are required per use during the final rinse. This sachet contains enough wetting agent for eight rolls of 120 or 16 rolls of 35mm film in a two-reel, 600mL developing tank.

ILFOTOL is a non-ionic wetting agent that aids in rapid, even drying of film, helps to prevent water spots from forming, and promotes anti-static qualities.

I see everyone using the changing bag and basically doing this blind. What I wonder is can you just do it in lets say a closet with a safety bulb, kind of like a make shift dark room?
Asked by: Charles
If you have access to a light tight space, you may load your film there instead of using a changing bag. Unfortunately, loading your film to a tank must been done in complete darkness, changing bag or light-tight room otherwise.

If only processing one reel at a time, can the chemistry be stored to be reused on the second?
Asked by: Jeffrey
According to technical specifications provided by Ilford (I've attached a link below), yes, you can. However, they have some further instructions listed: "2. Process one at a time and re-use the developer: Another method is to use only approx. 500ml of the developer solution and retain the remainder. Process the first film as normal. Remix the used developer with the remainder of the unused. Use this solution for the next film and increase the processing time by 10%." https://www.ilfordphoto.com/amfile/file/download/file/1947/product/1731/ Keep in mind that tank solution (developer + water) has a relatively short shelf-life, and loses strength rapidly as the day goes on.
