Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Robert J. Mathes, Aug 28, 2003.

  1. I'm interested in hearing from Kodak HC110 developer users. Likes, dislikes,
    good qualities, bad qualities, from those who have used it or are using it.
    All comments are welcome........well, almost all are! Thanks.

  2. I like it. I don't mess around with different developers and HC-110
    seems to do the job for me.

    I like the fact that it can be diluted different ways for different
    results. I am able to do N, N-1, N+1 and C (compensating) through the
    use of different dilutions and time.

    Also, it lasts. I micx a stock solution and go from there. I guess
    I'm not much of an innovator. I kinda just do what the Great Yellow
    Father says.

    BTW: I mainly use Tri-X Pro in 120 roll film and 8x10 sheets.

    I haven't used it in a couple of years, but it was great stuff when I did.
    The liquid concentrate is very convenient, and it lasts a long time without
    deterioration. It is slightly grainier than D-76, and it produces a little
    less speed, but the tonality is excellent. It is also quite versatile.
    Aside from the fairly wide contrast range you can get from varying the
    development time, you can change the dilution easily to match different
    kinds of work.

    I used it a long time ago when I was still using hp5 and fp4 (or is it
    fp5?). As memory serves it's a bit grainier the D76 but gives better
    tonality. I haven't used it since I started using Tmax film and
    discovered the Tmax developers.

  6. Very interesting, Richard! It seems that I have avoided using it for
    all the right reasons, as I prefer, by necessity, an S-shaped curve
    for condenser enlarging.
