    Harvey's 777..

    Any recent news from Bluegrass Packaging regarding the new batch of Harvey's 777? Last time they have advised of waiting for one component only. I need four-gallon packing if there would be some others too to place a bulk order.

    If not, anybody having some to sell? Thank you.

    I just called them and they said to check back at the end of this month. Same 'ol "we're waiting for one last chemical" spiel. I wouldn't hold my breath. How many years have we heard the same song and dance?

    What difference is there with the PF packaged version:

    I know of the varying stories from the old secretive days but am unsure of the version vs Bluegrass

    hi craig

    the formulary version is the one that was published on the unblinkingeye site.
    according to the lady at bluegrass who actually packages/mixes the developer it is " way off"
    but if you want use it ( the formulary's 777 ) , some say it is a good developer ..
    YMMV

    Well they would say that, wouldn't they? I wouldn't expect a place that had none of a product to sell at the time, but hoped to have it in the future, to just say, "oh yeah that other stuff is the same thing, just use it."

    Sounds to me like it might be time to see if the "way off" version from Photographer's Formulary is acceptable or not. At least you know it will be readily available, since you can mix it from scratch.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    I only know what I've read here about the original but someone with an established line of it could try the PF stuff and compare.

    Whatever's in it, it's unique. You don't get quite the same results with anything else. I stopped using it for a while, but I think I'll go back to it. 777 makes it much easier for me to control contrast.
