Zonal Pro Chemicalsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Printing & Finishing : One Thread
I am interested in using this company's products and their paper developer in particular. Has anyone used them and what do you think of your results??? All my work is B&W and Infrared in particular.
Thanks for any help

I've used their paper developer. It's nice stuff. Produces wonderful tones. While it's relatively 'soft', it does produce nice rich blacks. If it weren't for Agfa Neutol WA, I would probably use this developer most of the time. The only thing I didn't like about it was the lack of build-up to density(that's the only way I can explain it). With Zonal Pro, image build-up is slow, and intesity at the end of development is quick. With the Agfa, build-up is rapid, and intensity is slow. I prefer the latter, as I don't really stricly time a print in the developer. Seems to be expensive initially, but winds up lasting a long time due to dilution. Most of the photographers that frequent my local store swear by the stuff.
