    Anyone familliar with super 76 liquid? I'm about to embark on my BTZS film tests and want to use efke 100 with d76 or super 76. Does super 76 have any of the quirks that d76 has ie getting more active after 1 month etc?

    Thank you.

    I used it for a while, and the saying is true: you get what you pay for! I was hoping for a D-76 type look as well, with the convenience of it already being in liquid form. But alas, this was not the case.

    In all recommended dillutions, the results were far too grainy, mids were muddy. I switched to HC-110, and use it & Rodinal as my 2 main developers.

    Hope this helps you out.
