Whew…Found A Good HC-110 Substitute

Since Kodak has gone out of the film developer chemistry business now…at least to the degree they sell it to film photographers as opposed to commercial processors…I’ve had to scramble for a source of a good HC-110 substitute. I found it at The Film Photography Project. They sell an FPP-110 developer that appears to be a functional clone of the new now discontinued Kodak product, that is, not the old HC-110 concentrate but the new version that had a limited lifespan. Fine…I worked with the Kodak product once and it behaved like the old concentrate did. So I was hoping this product from the Film Photography Project did the same.

I have tanks that hold 1, 2 and 4 reels of 35mm film. I loaded a single reel of Tri-X from my California trip as a test, and kept my fingers crossed that I wasn’t sacrificing a roll of good Leica shots just to prove the thing I got in the mail didn’t actually work like HC-110. But it was a complete success. So now I can finish off all the rolls I took in California.

Except for the Agfa Copex Rapid, which I intend to develop using the old H&W Control developer recipe. I ordered the raw chemicals for that from The Photographer’s Formulary. B&H didn’t stock most of what I needed and wouldn’t ship half of them anyway. Photographer’s Formulary ships but you had to specify UPS Ground shipping for two of the chemicals, since they’re declared to be hazardous. Most likely won’t get them here until sometime in mid January.

Still need a scale good to .01 grams.
