Where is the best place to buy chemicals online. I live remote and the nearest store is about 4 hours away from my house.
kjsphoto said:Thank you or all the links. I check them out but the chemiclas I have never heard of soem of them before. What would you recommend for a developer? I am interested in a 2-bath as well as a normal developer. Right now I am using TMAX developer.
kjsphoto said:I am thinking of mixing from scratch as I heard that they do not ship certain liquid developers. Liquid is nice though. As far as films I am now using Acros 100, Delta 400, 3200 films. I would like to go with one or two developers for all film types to keep thing consistent. I also world like to get a 2-bath developer for negatives that are a little tricky and I want to hold the highlight with more detail in the shadows. I have used D-76 in the past and currently TMAX. I will also shoot TMAX film from time to time. I am now trying to find a film I like and so far it is the delta and acros. I do not like TMAX that much but that is all I used to shoot.
I also think non liquid will have a longer shelf life as I only have to mix what I need for that run. With liquid that I use now I have to mix the whole bottle.
Anyway any suggestion / recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I had a pleasant surprise out shopping tonight. We were in a fairly new store to the area, Trader Joes, and found they stocked pure acorbic acid powder in the vitamin section. Needless to say I bought a bottle of it to try out. I'm glad so many folks have posted ascorbic developer formulas in the forums, makes it easy to play!
