Ilford Ilfosol-3 Film Developer for Black and White Film (500ml)
Key Features
  • Fine Grain
  • Optical Sharpness
Ilfosol-3 Film Developer is an enhanced, one-shot updated version of Ilford's Ilfosol-S. It has been created to suit the needs of photographers who prefer to use slower speed films such as Pan-F, FP4 Plus and Delta 100 Professional.

This is a fine grain and ultra sharp developer when used with films processed at full speed. However, you may use it at a 1:14 dilution for other films with only a minimal loss of image quality. It is supplied as a concentrate in economical 500ml bottles and is diluted (typically at a ratio of 1:9) for one-shot use.

What's the difference between 1+4 and 1+9 , I'm confused.
Asked by: Safwan
Well, 1 part developer and 4 parts water makes a stronger solution, so all other things equal, it would develop film faster. When I was young I worked in a newspaper darkroom. With press deadlines we sometimes had to push things as fast as possible. If needed, I could go from an exposed piece or roll of film to a print that was ready for the engraver in about 10 minutes. But it was grainy, still wet and not permanently fixed. What you want is different. You want smooth tonal range, detail in the shadows and fine grain. Use 1 to 9 and take your time.

If i want to develop 2 rolls of 120 films at the time or 3 rolls of 35mm films, how much will be the chemicals and water?
Asked by: Safwan
Ilford Ilfosol-3 once diluted is for one-shot use. Dilute it immediately before use and discard directly after development. The should be diluted 1 to 9 with water. How much chemical to use will depend more on the size of your developing tank. The Ilford Technical Data Sheet linked here will give information on how much to use for different tank sizes. https://www.ilfordphoto.com/amfile/file/download/file/572/product/1576/
