    Harman (Ilford) Warmtone/Cooltone Developer Available!

    Greetings,

    My local photo store has the new Ilford Harman warm and cooltone developers in stock. Just a FYI in case anyone was waiting for their arrival here in the US. I did pick up a bottle of the Warmtone; comes in a brown box, similar to the warmtone Ilford papers. Price was $14.99 for a 1 liter bottle to make 10 liters. Includes some instruction sheets, etc. Go get some and help support Ilford!

    Marco

    The entry cost to produce paper developers is quite low, formulas are well known and most of the materials are trivial to source. The most expensive technical items, I suggest, is the PC to run some billing software. The costs and prerequisites are quite the contrast to those demanded by coating for the production of high quality paper and film. Its nice that Ilford are offering more chemicals but what is "terrific" is that they are coating. Loads of companies form large to smaller than small (1-man) are making film and paper developers but only a few are and can make the papers to go into these developers.....

    Good grief, edz, thanks for your enthusiasm! If you take all good news this way, you sure are a happy fellow...

    The new warmtone developer had been long announced, thanks for letting me know it's available now. Agfa Neutol WA (alas!) out, but now Ilford Warmtone in... Truly good news to me. :-)

    and

    http://www.thedarkroom.co.uk/product...roductID=201.2

    nowhere else (eg silverprint, first call etc) seem to have it listed yet., but I find RK's prices to be pretty much the best anyway (just look at the list price for fotospeed Legacy 12 x 16!)

    Note From ILFORD Photo / HARMAN Re Cooltone & Warmtone:

    Dear All,

    I am pleased that most of you are happy to see 2 new paper developers :

    As to availability the answer is simple, USA was first launch, everywhere else should be late January early February 06 in the retailers, all the distributors have ordered, by which time the US APUG members should have posted their verdict, I will be watching closely...it was my product launch.

    Simon, is the Warmtone chemically similar to Neutol WA? Those of us who use(d) that developer for Azo would be pleased with such news. Can't seem to find any product info yet on the Ilford Web site.
