The following is essentially a list of lists. Specifically, lists of developer formulations for film.
- Chemical Formulae for Use in the Darkroom (also includes formulae for print development and toning)
- I am Jack’s list of Film Developers
- Film Developers by Type
- and the previously mentioned Formulary page from FrugalPhotographer.com
To date, the film developer with which I’ve had the most experience is Ilford’s ID-11, or the very similar Kodak D-76: “standard issue” for a student of photography, at a time when the available range of analogue photography products is rapidly thinning. As film becomes commercially unsustainable, photographers in that medium may need to take control, and hack their own chemistry.
