Intended for use with a variety of black and white films, Kodak HC-110 is a highly concentrated liquid black and white film developer with an extremely long shelf life, great shadow detail, and precise contrast control through dilution choice.
Originally designed as a fast developer for press photographers, HC 110 is now widely used by large-format photographers and adherents of the Zone System. This developer takes advantage of the film's full light sensitivity and allows to get more precise control over the negative contrast.
HC-110 comes in the form of a liquid concentrate, allowing users to mix up just enough concentrate with water to make a single-use solution of the volume required by their developing tank. These characteristics make it a highly convenient and cost-effective developer choice for beginners and experienced darkroom enthusiasts.
Dilutions vary, see data sheet. Dilution B (1:31) is most common. It can be used for replenished and non-replenished systems but one-shot use is recommended.
