    I have recently began Developing film at college using FD10 developer. I have noticed that after 10 1/2 minutes at 20C in the developer the negatives are thin and not very contrasty.
    Has anyone else been having these problems with this developer or is it just me?

    Edit: I forgot to mention that the film I've used is Ilford HP5 plus

    It would help to tell us what film you used.
