The Ag Essentials kit is ideal for anyone who wants to experience the magic of traditional black and white film processing. There is no need to have a darkroom to use this kit because the processing tank has a light trap enabling the chemicals to be poured in and out in daylight. The film needs to be loaded into the tank in darkness, however, but a changing bag (available separately) or a dark place such as under a duvet in a darkened room or a dark cupboard could be used to do this.

Included in the Ag Essentials Film Processing Kit:
  • Tetenal Paranol S Film Developer
  • Tetenal Indicet Stop Bath
  • Tetenal Superfix Plus Fixer
  • Tetenal Mirasol wetting agent
  • 2 x 500ml top quality (UK made) graduated measuring mixing Jugs
  • Measuring Syringe to accurately measure the chemical concentrates
  • Thermometer
  • Film drying clips (one weighted)
  • 35mm / 120 Processing Tank with 2 reels
  • Detailed easy to understand instructions
Chemistry details

Tetenal Paranol S Film Developer 250ml - Will process up to 41 35mm films when used at 1:50!
This is a very old developer formulation known as Rodinal, in production originally by Agfa since 1898. Has excellent shelf life (takes years to go off) and normally used at very high dilutions - 1part to 25 or 50 parts water is normal. So it's very economical. Negatives display extreme sharpness and this is one of the features of this developer (it's known as a "high acutance" developer). When looking up development times for different black and white films, follow times for Rodinal.

Tetenal Indicet Stop Bath 1L
Straight forward stop bath, used after film developer.
Has indicator - changes colour when over saturated with developer. This bottle will last for ages when used to full capacity. Excellent shelf life, never really goes off (it's like vinegar!) 

Tetenal Superfix Plus 250ml
Standard fixer.
May be re-used after dilution. Excellent shelf life.

Tetenal Mirasol 250ml
This is the wetting agent. Add a few drops to the final rinse and it reduces the surface tension of the water and helps it to "fall off" the film and not hang in globules which can evaporate leaving marks on the film. Also has anti fungal agents.
Excellent shelf life, lasts for years, treats 100's of films from one bottle.
