hi all. someone on OS is doing an MO for the wonderful developer, diafine. check it out here.

a bit more expensive than normal developers, but oh so nice grain and sharpness. long lasting too.

best used with tri-x, in my opinion.

do check it out.

i have only tried Rodinal. How do you use Diafine? Do u have to mix 2 chemicals together? Is it carcinogenic?

i use rodinal too. carcinogenic? hmm didn't hear anything of it. diafine is a 2 solution developer (unlike rodinal which is a 'one shot' developer), tried it only once before a few years ago...long story. (short version is i found an old bottle under the sink) like a long lost love. its a very old developer...so i guess should be quite safe - would have been scrapped if there was a problem. of course, don;t eat it or anything.

mix into 2 solutions A and B. There's a good thred on OS detailing use of diafine, much more than i can remember.

It's a Vitamin C (absorbic acid) based developer. Good thing about it is u can see your neg in 6 minutes time using tap water straight off.

Each gallon pack work out to $60, with the freight cost.

Let me know if you need any (I'm the one doing the order on OS :) )
