Ornano / Bellini Nucleol BF200 ~ Pyrocat B&W Film Developer ~ 2x 100ml

£13.80£15.30 Inc. vat

Revived and refined from the Ornaon back catalogue comes the wonderful Nucleol BF 200.

Coming to you in a choice of packaging BF200 is a pyro developer that is specially designed to take advantage of the characteristics of modern emulsions.

A Pyrocatic developer that has the magic three properties most desire in a film developer:

  1. Fine Grain
  2. High accutance
  3. Great Tonality

On top of that BF200 has considerable capacity for compensation and is equipped with great energy…all  features that make it very suitable for maximising the sensitivity of many films.

Supplied in two concentrated solutions to ensure better shelf life over time, extended by not storing it below 5c ie NOT in the fridge!   The two solutions are then diluted in the quantities required immediately before use and used as a one shot developer.

This is the developer that the guys at the Bellini factory rave about….note that Part A may appear darker that in the photo shown and show a little detritus in the bottom….don’t worry about it.

We shall be trying more films in this brilliant product over the year, results so far have been very very lovely and seem to have a retro feel to them.

To use, (we recommend one of our 10ml measuring syringes to make life easier) measure out Part A and add that to the correct amount of water at 20c or 24c as required then add Part B to make up the solution ready for use.  There is no need to use de-mineralised water…

It is important to do it in that order so that the chemicals react with each other properly…easy as that!

Our test photos are from Ilford HP5+ rated at 800asa and processed per the chart shown…we love the classic look from the results of this roll….

Quick note here:  If you’re just starting out in home processing we’d recommend you start with another, easier to use developer, but once you’ve done a couple of dozens rolls and would like to try this then let us know 🙂
