    Lith Developer No Longer Available?

    I don't know if anyone else noticed, or have any information about Rollei Vintage Lith developer (formerly LP Superlith) having disappeared. Freestyle no longer lists it and, after placIng an order with Digital Truth, they have informed me that it is no longer available. As some are aware, it is (was) a great developer to use with Slavich paper.

    You could always mix up your own.

    Kodak D-8 Lith developer:

    Water (90 degress F) 750ml
    Sodium Sulfite (anh) 90g
    Hydroquinone 45g

    *Let cool before adding

    Sodium Hydroxide 37.5g
    Potassium Bromide 30g
    Water to make 1 litre

    *Very important to add sodium hydroxide to cool solution as it generates quite a lot of heat and can spatter. Make sure you are mixing in a well ventilated area. Wear gloves and mix in sink.

    Mix 2 parts stock to 1 part water.


    Wall's Normal Hyrdroquinone Developer

    Solution A
    Water 500ml
    Sodium Sulfite, dessicated 100g
    Hydroquinone 20g
    Cold water to make 1 litre
    _

    Solution B
    Water 500ml
    Potassium Carbonate 120g
    Water to make 1 litre

    Mix equal parts A and B.

    I've never used this developer. It doesn't contain sodium hydroxide.

    Macodirect still seems to have some but at very inflated prices
    Have you tried Moersch Easylith or Freestyles own lith developer Arista Premium A&B Lith.
    LP Superlith was my go to Lith developer in the past so I can feel your pain I hope that they haven't really discontinued the stuff.

    I use Moersch lith with Slavich - it gives nice results. I don't know can you get some to try it yourself if you don't find Rollei lith.

    Here is one example:

    Thanks, guys. Darko, yes, I do use Moersch and LD20 as well with Slavich, but Rollei has its own look, which suited certain images. Any day where a choice vanishes, is not a good day

    Looking at the part number of the Rollei Lith Developer I see that it uses the same one as the Rollei Vintage Lith Developer (RSL70) for the 2x500 ml package.

    Maybe just a change of name, Maco announced they would do that with some products some time ago.
