Ilford 1960529 overview

  • 1Description

ILFORD PERCEPTOL is an extra fine grain developer which gives excellent image quality and very fine grain. It is optimized for use at the slower end of the exposure range. PERCEPTOL has been specially formulated to yield optimum results from high resolution lenses, to exploit the superb grain structure of ILFORD medium and slow speed films and to produce significantly finer grain in ILFORD fast films compared with a standard fine grain developer.

PERCEPTOL gives excellent results with any lens/film combination and is therefore ideal when texture and definition are critical; negatives processed in PERCEPTOL are capable of producing finer grain and better quality enlargements than those produced in a standard fine grain developer.

PERCEPTOL is supplied in powdered form and shows exceptional consistency throughout its working life. It is made up to a stock solution for normal tank and tray use, and can be further diluted 1+1 or 1+3 for users who prefer to use fresh solution each time.

Ilford 1960529 reviews

Perceptol Developer (Powder) for Black & White Film is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-use for low-ISO film scans The is the only developer I've found that gives me the OCD-quality scans I like with below-100 ISO films. It's slow to use and costs much more than anything else (you get about 1/4 as many uses from it), but unquestionably worth it for those that view their work as art. There are other developers people prefer (Rodinal, X-tol, etc.), but I find those developers don't yield a negative that scans nearly as well as Perceptol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff, especially for Ilford films Gave spectacular results on Delta 100 sheet film when diluted 1:1. I tray processed some 8x10's and was pleasantly surprised by the tonality and preservation of detail. Incredible, truly. I'm not so sure about its performance with non-Ilford films, but Kodak T-Max 400 35mm film was a little on the thin side, even following Ilford's recommendations on the box. Probably better to some testing with these other brands, but overall this is a fantastic one-shot developer, especially for sheet film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing results I use this product to pull my Iford pan F to 32 asa and do the 1/3 extended development time. The long development time under carful temperature control allows for very consistent results. I get extremely small grain with a sharpness I have never seen before in B & W film. I shoot 6 x 7 and print using glass plates a must for the format and I have been told over and over that my work is the sharpest they have ever seen many think I shoot 4 X 5!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go To Developer for Detail I use this developer almost exclusively for Ilford Delta films. If you are shooting a small format like 35mm film, it's great that it brings out details. The Delta films are similar to Kodak T Max films, so you need a developer that is matched to the film. I prefer to dilute 1+3 for better tones. It has a fairly good shelf life if you leave no air gap in your bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nobrainer for B&W lab After having a break of using (B&W)film for tha last 12 years I was happy still finding this fine grain developer on offer. Being a powder developer it can be sent to any place worldwide, which is another important aspect for me living at the Red Sea. I think this developer is well known within the community and doesn't need that much explanation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works insane with fomapan100 rate fomapan 100 at 50, develop for 7 minutes 45 seconds, and you have yourself some solid results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Use I have been working in a university darkroom, and they had the cheapest materials imaginable. When I decided to create my own darkroom, I decided I would work with quality. Yet this being one of the most expensive developers it is by far the best I have worked with and gives wonderful quality.
Date published: 2010-10-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low grain, fine detail developer My packet of Perceptol had been sitting unused for a long time before a combination of a shoot with my Rolleiflex on a very bright sunny day and the need for a developer well-equipment to handle the contrast extremes led me to make use of my kit. I was very pleased with the results, both on Ilford Pan F at 50 ISO and with Fomapan 100. Shadows and bright detail were well caught, but without sacrificing contrast.
