Kodak 5160296 overview

  • 1Description

Kodak D-76 Developer is a classic multi-use black & white film developer.

D-76 provides full emulsion speed and excellent shadow detail with normal contrast, and produces fine grain with a variety of continuous-tone black-and-white films.

For greater sharpness, but with a slight increase in graininess, you can use a 1:1 dilution of this developer.

It yields a long density range, and its development latitude allows push processing with relatively low fog.

Yields full emulsion speed and good shadow detail with normal contrast.
For general use.
Moderately fine grain, excellent development latitude.
Replenish with KODAK PROFESSIONAL Replenisher D-76R.
For normal or push processing.

Kodak 5160296 reviews

D-76 Developer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 133.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic! After years of being out of a darkroom, I set one up at home. I instinctively went to the developer that I learned with - Kodak D-76. It is the classic and there's a reason - it works! I get great tonal range and shadow, good detail and very little grain. It's also very forgiving and with a little practice yeilds super resuls even under less-than optimum conditions of heat & humidity. I've tried other developers but came back to the old stand-by D-76. In powder form is has a good shelf life, too. That is the one minor fault I can find... mixing a powder (any powder) takes longer and requiers more care, but that is honestly the only fault I can find with D-76!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all-around results. The standard in black and white developing. I use this one-shot, diluted one part stock solution to one part water and get consistent results. I've run Tri-X, Ilford Pan F+ and Ilford HP5+ through it. The stock solution needs to be stored in airtight containers, with as little air as possible, otherwise storage life will be significantly shorter. I keep mine in a set of 8oz bottles and get 16 rolls per packet, 8oz per roll. Kodak states 6 months shelf life for the stock solution; my last batch was still good after 5 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think I've found my perfect combo Prior to trying D-76, I've been using Tmax Developer for processing Tri-x 400 and Tmax 400 films. I've found D-76 to give me the perfect look that I strive to achieve in my images, epecially when used with Tri-x film. To me, it's the perfect combination. I can understand why so many people stick to d-76 as their tried and true developer. Tmax was great, and when done right, can give fantastic results. However, using it required a very consistent method. D-76 seems to be more forgiving with exposure or developing times, and I still get great images. Maybe not as great with shadow detail compared to Tmax Dev. but It's perfect for photojournalism, family pics, even fine art..and it's more economical.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The old standby--still a good choice Developers come and developers go (sometimes), but Kodak D-76 has been around since the 1930s and is still one of the most bullet-proof approaches to developing black and white film. I've been using it for my photography classes for eons: mix the stock solution, dilute 1:1 and do T-Max400 for 11.5 minutes at 70 deg. F. Discard after each use, which is both easier and more predictable than reusing stock solution and increasing development times with use. The other important thing about D-76 is that it lasts practically forever once mixed. I think Kodak says to use it within a month or two, but I've used it after a year and it still works. Also, almost no matter what film you are using, you will find a time recommendation for D-76.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The basics that still work every day There are plenty of developers out there and I have tried lots of them. The reality is, d76 is easy to mix, easy to use, and it works every time. For Tri-x, Neopan, HP5, and a host of other films, it gives you a nice range of tones and decent sharpness. It will reveal what your film can do and then you will have a baseline to try other things. This is a wonderful tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kodak D-76 Once upon a time there was a photographer that decided to shoot black and white film. He decided to pick up a roll of Kodak tri-x. After he was done shooting his roll he stopped and thought to himself "For once, I shall process my own film instead of sending it out." but when he went online, he saw that he had many, many, many options. He eventually came across Kodak D-76 and took a chance. He buys the developer, and by the works of magic a package shows up at his doorstep. He mixes all of his chemicals (you can assume he got stop bath and fixer too!) following the instructions provided by the manufacturer, and at the end realizes that processing film wasn't so difficult. He might even dare say, "These picture came out better than the lab!". Well.. let me tell you. He never sent out another roll of tri-x ever again. The end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best developer for home/private use I was using ilford developers for a while, but due to the somewhat sporadic schedule I have for developing personal B&W rolls I decided dry chemistry was better since I could mix it when need be. 1 liter of this stuff develops approximately 3 rolls, and can be stored for much longer than wet chemistry. For anyone with a home darkroom/reels and a developing bag I'd highly recommend getting this over other chemistry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect at what it does I develop my own film and the great thing about this powder is that I control how much I need to use, right out of the box. I don't have to mix in and measure out concentrate solution, although, for some folks, it's a preference. Mixed this in with a gallon of water, dropped in the developer, stirred it up, viola, developer is done and can be stored for 6 months. Does the job perfectly and as expected. Make sure to have your room ventilated, this stuff stinks pretty bad.
