I'm new to this board nad also new to developing b&w films and
And please forgive me about my bad english, I'm from Finland...
My first film I developed was Ilford Delta 100 Professional, I used
Ilfosol S (1+9) as developer. I carefully measured the temperature and it was a little bit over 20 degrees. Maybe max 0.5+. Stopper and fixer are from Ilford also. Ok, the first film was good, no problems what so ever.
The second and the next films didn't go that well. After development the films were pale and greyish. They had somekind of "veil" all over them. It think the films were not fully developed, as the space between the frames also had the "veil".
I have now tried to variable developing times, but not gotten any better
results. What else could be wrong?
What are the development times to use with Delta 100 pro and Delta 400 pro with Ilfosol S developer?
Manual that came with the developer says this:
Ilfosol S - Delta 400 1+9 = 9:00 (10:00)
Ilfosol S - Delta 400 1+14 = 14:00
Ilfosol S - Delta 100 1+9 = 6:00
Ilfosol S - Delta 100 1+14 = 10:00
And the pdf file from ilfords www site says: Processing your first black & white film. (Could not find it anymore, site has changed)
Ilfosol S - Delta 400 1+9 = 9:00
Ilfosol S - Delta 400 1+14 = 13:00
For Delta 100 the times are the same.
Please help a fellow in need...
