View Full Version : wd2d+

I've been playing with Wimberly's wd2d+ and J&C 400. Shot at full emulsion speed. My Mix Has been 1.5- 2- 40 at 70 degrees for 10 min. brush development technique. Has any one else been using the wd2d+ formula?...and if so I would like to know of their results. I have been getting beautiful results with this combo.

I've used it on roll film, hand inversion, nice results, especially with Ilford PanF and FP4+.

I think I better be careful here. Given it's reputation, it must be an excellent developer, and this forum is a perfect place for discussing this developer. But, people become so passionate about pyro. This is all I meant with my comment.

When he updated the formula to the plus version, it included EDTA. Does anyone know what the original formula adjustments are in the plus version?

Craig, Yes edta tetrasodium is the only new additive that is posted. But the concentrations evidently have changed also. The wd2d+ is recommended at a 1-1-50 mix while the original formula was mixed 1-1-15. Being it is a propietary formula I guess it is top secret. That part I don't understand - Is the market for pyro developers so great and is wd2d+ so good as to keep the formula a secret when every other pyro formula is posted? Or is it just about money?
