PROCESS ALL B&W FILM:

Df96 monobath easily processes any standard black and white film at its native ISO. It is designed with traditional cubic-grain emulsions in mind, like BwXX, TriX and HP5, with high silver content. It also works well with tabular grain films with color dye technology, like Tmax, but may come out of the bath with pink/purple dyes in the emulsion, and require double the processing time to clear. High speed films like P3200 and Delta3200 can be processed at their native ISOs between 1000-1600 by the instructions on the label, or pushed to 3200 by adding 10°F (6°C). All films can be pushed or pulled by adjusting temp. +/-10°F (6°C).
