    Microphen stock shelf life

    I just bought some today and have mixed up a litre because Jessops never had any HC-110. I've put two films through there. How many more can I get out of it before throwing it? I'm used to just using one shot but obviously this must be good for some more.

    It'll have a similar shelf life to D-76/ID-11, i.e. 6 months in a full closed bottle, and 2-3 months in a partially-filled one.

    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?

    In my experience, it lasts much longer. I ran a replenished liter for over a year. Finally dumped it out because all the silver falling out of solution and settling at the bottom of the bottle. The dev was still fine...just looked gross.
