The Santa RAE emulsion is new outside the powers of the north! Early testing was done with various developers across 8 rolls of the film. Today 6th of March the first test rolls began shipping for human testing. If you are one of the first testers please share your best practices and feedback on the film - comment below this post, tag santa on instagram, or send us an electronic mail letter. If your findings are super helpful we will gladly send you some new film for your help.

Developing Santa Kodak D76 at for 13 minutes 30 seconds So far the best results for developing Santa Rae have come from using Kodak D76 black and white film developer at and for 13 minutes 30 seconds. You can see some results via this process at the Santa review below.
Through this process some quality degradation occurred when continuously spun on a JOBO for the duration. While continuous agitation worked well here keep in mind hand agitation is recommended for XTOL as mentioned in the previous section. This method was performed by Nicolas Llasera and the images can be seen in his YouTube review. More options For developers not mentioned above please develop Santa as if it were Kodak TRI-X iso, we expect good results from this.
You Will Need: ml Water to 10tsp Instant Coffee 10 tsp teaspoon soda crystals 1,5 tsp ascorbic acid Vitamin C 2,5 tsp iodised salt Measure ml clean water and divide it equally to two cups. Add 10 tsp soda crystals to first cup, stir until dissolved.
Add 2,5 tsp salt to solution, stir until dissolved. Add 1,5 tsp ascorbic acid, stir until dissolved. Stir until all substances dissolve and liquid is clear. Add 10 tsp instant coffee to clear water in the second cup, stir until fully mixed.
Combine these two solutions in one cup. Developer is ready!
XTOL vs D-76/ID-11
You dissolve the powders sequentially in warm water to make a stock solution that can be stored for a few months in full PETE or glass bottles. The fine grain effect is achieved using a silver solvent, sodium sulfite, which dissolves the edges of the film grains. This provides additional smoothness of the final image at the cost of reduced resolution and fine detail. The solvent action is reduced by dilution or by ageing of a replenished solution. XTOL is an ascorbate-based developer and is therefore relatively environmentally friendly. The drawback is that if you are using an inversion tank, the economy is poorer than necessary, e.
Developing Black and White Film with Kodak XTol
Chemistry Preparations Prior to developing film with this process, you will need to mix some chemistry. Both are bags of powder. First, fill your 5L graduate with 4L of Distilled Water. This is going to look like: Next, pour in the powder from Part A and use your chemistry stirrer to mix all of Part A in. This will take a few minutes. Make sure everything dissolves before moving to Part B and remember, this is 6 months worth of chemistry! Part A Dissolved — Look at that pretty color!
