    Does anyone know how to tell if I have a bottle of European or American HC110? There are references to both on dev web sites. I bought mine in England but it says Made in the USA on it!
    Thanks

    It says "Made in USA" on it and your question is ... what, again? :blink:

    If it looks like this, and has the same numbers for the "To Make 7.6 liters ..." part of the label, it is the North American version:

    Regardless of where it's made, the formula is the same right? :blink:

    Evidently there is a difference in dilutions between USA and Euro versions.

    I've never seen the Euro version in the flesh, even when I lived in Sweden the version on the shelves was the US one (but it was in a square shaped bottle).

    My bottle (bought from Silverprint) looks like the bottle in MattKing's post but the label is slightly different. It says "Fabriqué en France pour Eastman Kodak SA - Genève". The volume of the bottle is given as 500 ml.

    Well, it's not as simple as some people think. Mine says Made in the USA but it has the CAT number 5010541. It says 1 Liter on the bottle too. Confused? I am. Thanks for trying to help one and all.

    If the bottle says dilution B is 1+9 you have the european formulation.

    My bottle does say dilution B is 1+9, confirming that it is the European formulation. Worked very nicely with HP5, though I think I may have overcooked the negs a bit!

    Which is for sure you have the USA concentrated version. I have the same. Dilution B = 1+31.

    best regards,
