Continuing my medium format work, I've started using Kodak HC-110 developer which is a gloopy orange syrup, much cheaper to use than Ilford chems and used by Ansel Adams. Using an unofficial dilutiion (1:62), named H I doubled the development time (from dilution B) and the results are amazing, nice fine grain and nice sharp scans. I'm pretty sure this is now my favourite developer so far, and I can see why Ansel liked it so much....

 

Pentacon Six TL, Carl Zeiss MC f/4 50mm Flektagon Jena DDR, Kodak T-Max 100, Kodak HC-110 Dilution H (1:62) (600ml) 20.1ºC (coldest running water I could get) 12 mins dev time, agitation first 10 seconds of every minute.
