The ARS­IMAGO ­ FD FILM DEVELOPER is a highly concentrated, high energy, mildly compensating one shot developer for processing black and white films.

It fully uses the film speed and many films will show an increased (foot) film speed as well as increased E.I. with appropriate developing times.

This developer produces good acutance and an accurate grain rendition without softening or excessive grain crumpling even in push processing.

 

Cheap: high capacity

Effective: maximum exploitation of the film sensitivity

Energetic: particularly suitable for push processing

MIXING INSTRUCTION: The ARS­IMAGO FD FILM DEVELOPER is a liquid concentrated developer. Dilute the developer with running water, just before use and discard afterwards. This is a "One Shot" developer that should not be reused.

The recommended Diluition 1+39. Dilution can be varied from 1+19 ( for low contrast films) to 1+59 (for high contrast films.).

The volume of working solution you need depends on the size of your tank and on the number of film that you are developing in it.

TEMPERATURE: Use the mixed developer solution at 20°.

AGITATION: First 30'' continuous, then two gentle inversion very 30'' (development in small tank).

CAPACITY: 40 films with 300ml of ARS­IMAGO FD concentrate.

STORAGE: The developer has to be used within 6 months, after opening the original pack. Store the chemical in a full tightly closed bottle.

DEVELOPMENT TIMES: These times of development are suitable to achieve an excellent tonal range. Look at the development table.

4 (more) good reasons to develop your films in black and white!

The new line of chemical products manufactured and distributed by arsimago, dedicated to all analog photographers from professionals to those who are about to enter for the first time in the darkroom, was born to a specific need: expand the use of film and the traditional analogue techniques, looking to the future .

Why?

  • The answer is simple: because all users required it, to innovate and remain vigilant on photographic practice that is at the heart of our passion, to guide the end user in the wide world of analog products and offer quality and alternatives.

How?

  • Through research and the identification of simple and professional basic products for the development and printing.
  • All the ars-imago chemicals were subjected to empirical tests described with transparency to the user. The products have specific characteristics that can be followed according to the working standards or according to user testing, including through dialogue and verification with the ars-imago staff.
  • The technical documentation of our products are available in digital format and the documents can be expanded through the practice of users and empirical tests coordinated by arsimago increasing the amount of information that can be shared to our customers.

Why you should choose the ars-imago chemicals?

  • To purchase products for professional analog photography at a fair price and accessible without losing the guarantee of big brands.
  • To support our project and our research of specific products promoted by users: the line of ars-imago chemicals will not be limited to the basic chemicals but will explore the many possibilities offered by analogue photography.
