510 Pyro And Pyrocat HD Test
Having just received a bottle of 510 Pyro developer, I was curious as to how it compared against my standard developer which Pyrocat HD.
This is my no means a scientific test, it was just more of a quick experiment to see how much of a difference there was between the two pyro based developers.
For the subject, I chose a very simple still life, no fancy lighting or props just a pair of mole grips and an egg.
The film was Fomapan 200 35mm rated at ISO 100 and the camera was a Pentax Spotmatic F with a Mirage telephoto lens.
I bulk loaded two rolls of film each having 7 frames on each and then exposed all 7 on one roll and then swapping out for the other roll and then developed one roll in 510 Pyro and the other roll in Pyrocat HD
The negatives were then scanned as Gamma 1.0 Linear scans using Vuescan as the software and then converted to a positive using ColorPerfect.
Apart from cropping the scan no further edits were done to either.
