Cinestill Df96 Monobath Black and White Chemistry
The single-step solution is now available in powder concentrate or ready-to-use liquid. Processing all of your B&W film at home is easier than ever with this magical and versatile Single-Step BW “Developer-Fix” mono bath solution, akin to D96 motion picture developer but with no need for stop bath, fixer, or any other chemicals, is perfect for processing CineStill BwXX along with any other black & white film. No special charts, timers, or apps are needed! Just a processing tank and water. The foolproof self-completing process guarantees motion picture quality, the smoothest grain structure, and a crisp tonal curve. Flexible processing in 3-6 minutes at any room temperature (70-80F). Just wash with water and hang to dry. No more complicated measurements or strict margins to deal with. Process all your black and white films in one chemical with absolutely wonderful results! Df96 mono bath easily processes any standard black and white film at its native ISO. It is designed with traditional cubic-grain emulsions in mind, like BwXX, TriX, and HP5, with high silver content. It also works well with tabular grain films with color dye technology, like Tmax, but requires double the processing time to clear, and may come out of the bath with pink/purple dyes in the emulsion. This is normal and will fade away. High-speed films such as P3200 and Delta3200 can be processed at their native ISOs between 1000-1600 by the instructions on the label or pushed to 3200 by adding 10°F (6°C). All films can be pushed or pulled by adjusting temp. +/-10°F (6°C).
