    Hi Dave - I hope the P-30 kit I sold you a couple years ago wasn't a bad one. It was still fresh after I did the p3.5 conversion. I read with interest your recent developer and bleach dilution experimentation/recommendations. I will be doing an "ilfochrome" run in the next couple weeks: do you have any more words of wisdom beyond that last thread? Do you think greater dilutions will affect print longevity?

    Thanks!

    Doug

    Hi Doug,
    I don't remember the sale details, but it's water under the bridge anyway. I don't really know the affect of diluting the dev and bleach on color stability, maybe PE or someone else will know. Seems to me after it's been fixed properly it should be ok. But I could be wrong.
    Long live Ciba!

    Dilution or concentration of the developer or bleach will only affect the image dyes in terms of color and saturation, they will not affect stability.

    Dilution of the fix, and then underfixing will affect the dmin and hues as the image discolors due to retained silver salts. A simple blix should help this if it takes place.

    Under washing will affect image stability.

    Storing Ciba/Ilford prints with chromogenic prints can affect the dye hue and stability of chromogenic prints due to the slightly acid nature of the Ilford materials. Chromogenic dyes prefer to be near neutral or they can discolor.

    There, more than you ever wanted to know.

    FYI: on 12-Feb I paid $85 for the P30.2 kit. I was told that as of 1-March the price was going up.

    SR, where did you buy the kit?
    Ground shipping?

    Do not see Ilfochrome going anywhere any time soon. Too many imagesetters out there using it.
