    I too think the 130 is an awesome print developer. I have been printing with lith for a long time and decided to do some normal prints. I've had my 130 concentrate for a year now, and it's still good as new.
    Funny bit is I thought my prints looked a hair dull compared to what I could muster before I got into lith printing. So I tried some Ilford Multigrade and realized that the developer was not the problem... The Ilford was excellent too, gave nice warm tones and I'll use it up.

    Now with the outlook to use it as film developer too I'm really excited about it. Two more negs souped successfully in the 130 last night...

    The negs all look much better than I had hoped. If I have time tonight when I return home I will scan them to see if my first visual impression is right.
    I diluted 1+4 and the full cycle was between 3 and 5 minutes. Next time I'll try 1+10 upon John Nanian's advice. Slow it down a bit, avoid uneven development.

    OOPS the glycin before the BZT. I am happy, the glycin never lasts long enough to turn brown!!!

    glad to hear you like it thomas

    i usually use my 130 1: 5 or 1:6sh when i shuffle sheets of film ..
    Tom Hoskinson has experimented with 130 a bit too, and he
    suggested i dilute the developer 1:10 .. i am just spreading the joy

    I just recently tried 130 for stand development of some roll film -- worked great! Diluted 1:50, 1 hour stand with a single inversion at the 30-minute mark. Nice tonal range and no outrageous edge effects. Thumbs up.

I'll still use amidol for some things, but I think I'll be keeping a tray of Ansco 130 filled for general use.
    Yes, David...Ansco 130 is a superb print developer. Even Ansco 120, the soft working lower contrast dev is amazing, too.

    Another developer with super-long tray life is Ethol LPD, and the tones are wonderful as well. A nice feature of LPD is the fact that you can get warmer tone by increasing the dilution, with no change in contrast. A great parlor trick!

    A-130 with Delta 100 4x5

    Here is an example of using it as a film developer. Just a test neg shot in my back yard.

    Delta 100 exposed at box speed. Developed in Ansco-130 (Photographer's Formulary version anyway) 1+4 for 4 minutes at constant agitation. About 68*F temp. This is a neg scan.

    It seems to work very well, and holds wonderful shadow detail.

    I have a few formulas for glycin film developers, which I've never tried. If there's interest, I could start a new item and post them.
