Here are a couple of old Gevaert Film Developer Recipes I got from an old Amphoto Processing Data Book. As usual, mix chemicals in the order given and exercise caution when mixing chemicals together.


GEVAERT FILM DEVELOPER G.207

This film developer has some compensating characteristics as well as offering soft tonal gradation. It is particularly useful for flash photography negatives as it will hold back highlights and allows shadows to develop more density.

WATER(52C OR 125F)-----------------750.0 cc
METOL-------------------------------4.0 g
SODIUM SULFITE,DESSICATED---------100.0 g
SODIUM CARBONATE,MONOHYDRATED--6.0 g
POTASSIUM BROMIDE-----------------2.0 g
ADD COLD WATER TO MAKE-----------1.0 litre

Develop roll and miniature films for five minutes at 20C with constant agitation, seven minutes with intermittent agitation.


GEVAERT FILM DEVELOPER G.215

A softer gradation compensating developer, this is more suitable for flash exposure on sheet films and plates as well as faster roll films.

WATER(52C OR 125F)------------------750.0 cc
METOL--------------------------------4.0 g
SODIUM SULFITE,DESSICATED---------25.0 g
SODIUM CARBONATE,MONOHYDRATED--12.0 g
POTASSIUM BROMIDE------------------0.5 g
ADD COLD WATER TO MAKE------------1.0 litre

USE AT 20C.
Develop medium speed films and plates between 6-9 minutes, depending on agitation and desired contrast. High speed films may require as much as 50% more development time.
