Ilford 1155064 reviews

Ilfotec HC Developer is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Economical High Quality Ilfotec HC is the most economical Ilford developer. It's designed for general purpose use and I have used it as such. I've developed Ilford films - HP5+, FP4+, Delta 400, Pan F+, Kentmere films - Kentmere 100 and 400, Kodak films - Tmax 100 and 400, Tri-X 400, Rollei films - Retro 80S, 400S, and 400IR, and Bergger BRF-400 with this developer and have never had a less than satisfactory result. I've also used it with HP5+ pushed to 1600, again with excellent results. It's true that specialized developers such as Ilford Microphen or Perceptol produce marginally better results for optimized film and conditions, and I do use them for such, but Ilfotec HC will always do the job. The developer itself is a thick, syrupy, liquid that is diluted to make up a working solution. I typically use 250ml at a time to make up 1 liter of working mix. This will keep for months in a tightly sealed bottle and is further diluted for single use developing. It's easy to use as such and gives consistent reproducible results. I regard Ilfotec HC as my most useful and versatile black and white film developer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ilford Alternative to Kodak's HC-110 I tried this for the first time about a week ago as part of a project to try a few of the more popular film developers that I've never used before. Most of my experience is with Xtol and Tmax developers (both excellent products). From all the research I've done on the web, this looks to be nearly identical to Kodak HC-110 in terms of how it is used and and its performance characteristics. It is a thick syrupy liquid concentrate that can be used in various dilutions from 1:11 up to 1:47 (and more under more certain circumstances). Varying the concentration allows you more choice over developing time. The fact that the concentrate is glycol based means it tends to oxydize very slowly giving it a very long shelf life for those who only develop film sporadically. I split the contents of the 1 liter bottle into four smaller bottles to further extend shelf life. In the interest of longevity, I mix the working solution direct from the concentrate measuring it with a medical syringe rather than mix up the 1+3 stock solution. The shelf life of the 1+3 stock is considerably less than the concentrate. If you're really interested in accuracy, measuring out the concetrate by weight is even more precise than using a syrnge, so you might consider getting one of those cheap electronic scales from Hong Kong (sold through ebay). Ideally it should have a resolution down to hundredths of a gram. One advange of Kodak HC-110 is that it comes in a smaller (16 oz) size, but I have heard that they plan to repackage it into a larger size soon (which supposedly explains why the 16 oz size is getting hard to find). While this stuff seems expensive, it goes a long way. It's convenient and you throw the working solution away after one use, which makes for very consistent results. So far I've used it only with Delta 100 film, but was very pleased with the results. Like HC-110, Ilfotec HC seems to be a good general purpose developer. It is not the best fine grain developer or the best for push processing, but not a bad choice if you plan to choose one developer for all your B&W film.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Developer Ive only run 6 rolls HP5+ through with this developer 2@400, 2@800, and 2@1600. the results have been fantastic with very sharp and dense negatives and settings have ranged from an out door wedding to a local music show at a small club. very easy to use with consistant results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good general purpose film developer FYI a good developer but not the same as HC110 and not a direct replacement. At standard dilution of 1:31 (HC110 dilution B)Ilfotec HC requires significantly longer development times so use the Ilfotec HC suggested development times as a jump off point not your HC10 time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for years Been using Ilfotec HC for years now. It is extremely consistent and has a long shelf life. It gives me good densities on almost any film with moderate to low grain.
