Are you new to film developing? It’s surprisingly simple to develop black and white film at home. You can find out how easy it is in our guide: How To Develop Black And White Film

How To Find Your Developing Times

First, you need to know which film you want to develop. We have grouped the films by their brand. So, simply find the brand of your film on the list below and click the link.

On the next page, you will find developing times for all films made by that brand. You need to find the specific film you are developing to see all the relevant developing times.

Next, you need to find the developer you are using in the table. In the following columns, you will see all the possible dilutions and corresponding development times for the developer.

Choose which option you want and you will have your film developing time.

All these times have been sourced from the manufacturer’s recommendations. We cannot guarantee the results and therefore all times should be treated as a guideline. Always remember, times shorter than 5 minutes may lead to uneven development and are therefore not recommended.

If you are unsure about anything, please get in touch before you start developing and we will be happy to help.
