    I'm rather new to Emofin and developed so far 12 films in the batch I prepared about 3 months ago. Stored in a glass bottle and spayed with butane gas. Now I had the impression with the last two films that the developer became less active.

    Tetenal says shelf life 3 - 6 months and 15 films capacity. How are your experiances?

    Many thanks in advance - Reinhold

    My experience is that Emofin keeps very well. My current Emofin is prepared about half year ago and I haven't noticed any problem with it. Expect the change of developer's color.

    I store it in plastic bottles.


    It could be more the issue with film volume than shelf live?
