ansco130 / GAF universal : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

i found a old can of gaf about 7 years ago in a studio i used to rent .. it must have been 20+ years old ... it had instructions for using the developer to process film.

i started to use ansco130 again since maybe march for prints as well as film. i dilute around 1:5 and process at about 70 by inspection -

does anyone else have experience with this developer to process film?

In my experience this is a print developer with many nice qualities - a long delicate scale.

I have used much of this developer, both for printing and films. The long scale Mr. Simmons mentioned is in negatives made with this developer too. Instead of 1:5, maybe 1:4 givees better contrast, still many nice tones. Bye Mikal

I use PMK for all of my film and have for 20 years. The long scale I was referring to is in developing prints with 130.

i like its long scale in prints, the negatives made from using this developer are nicer that those i made with xtol. i'm glad glycin is still being made :) -john
