I switched to Eco Pro's ascorbic acid developer way back when Xtol was having failure issues, and never switched back. I'd originally used Xtol for tray development of sheet film, for the sake of its lower toxicity, but I also found that it rendered a beautiful negative. I get the same results with Eco Pro, on everything from 8x10 down to 35mm. It's reliable and consistent from batch to batch, with a great shelf-life. My HP5+ negatives are sharp and fine -grained, with a near-linear contrast that is easily controlled by development time.

I really like EcoPro Developer the results are always great. I love how it handles pushed film the results are also great and It is not as harsh as D76. The one thing I do not really like is how it has a packet 1 and 2 this also sometimes take a while to fully dissolve however it works wonders.

Easy and Fun

This is a very easy developer to work with, and gets excellent results. Obviously, avoiding harmful chemicals is wonderful, too. Do be sure to take your time with mixing; if the A batch is not dissolved 100%, you can get strange marks on your negatives (unless that is what you want). We also use this with Eco Pro Fixer, a great pair.

Works well

My first experience with an XTOL like developer. I have only developed one roll of Kentmere 400 with Eco-Pro undiluted stock solution. Compared to D-76 as a 1 to 1 dilution, the Eco-Pro developer produced a finer grain with similar contrast. Compared to ilfosol-3 as a 1 to 9 dilution, Eco-Pro had finer grain and slightly less contrast. I will have to see how the shelf life compares to D-76. I am storing stock solution in plastic one liter bottles and have squeezed them to remove excessive air. Mixing was not a problem. If the storage life is long enough I will keep buying this developer.

Used this to develop Ilford HP5+

Just got into developing my own B&W film and discovered this product as an alternative to the typical, more toxic photo chemicals. The developer works and it's not smelly. It's easy to mix. I processed 2 rolls of HP5+ shot at 1600 for the recommended time (from digitaltruth website) and it worked flawlessly. Seems like a very forgiving developer for this film. Give it a shot.

Ok

Not my favorite, it is a low-contrast developer, and I was going for a high-contrast look on IR. I won't be trying it again, but if you need a gentle developer to bring out a wide range of tones, you could do a lot worse than this developer. Took some time to mix and dissolve, but worked well. Just not to my taste.

Great results, great price

I've used this so far to develop HP5 and Kentmere 400, pushing up to ISO 1600. Great results, at least on par with XTol (my favorite developer) with similar mixing and keeping properties, but at a better price. Win-win.

decent developer

The Eco Pro LegacyPro Ascorbic Acid Powder Black/ White Film Developer (Makes 5 L) is ideally suited to film developing. They make a separate Eco Pro Black and White Paper Developer which comes in a few sizes. https://bhpho.to/3RYEElH
