New Classic EZ400
How do you want it ...?
EZ400 can be processed in every common negative developer. We do though vouch for the development methods and the provided developing time chart. However, if you find a different formula that you prefer - let us know how it goes!
Agitate or turn over continuously during the first 30 seconds, then for 10 seconds every following minute. These instructions should yield medium-contrast negatives.
See dev chart below for options. We encourage you to experiment!
Once development has elapsed, you can rinse this film with a branded stop bath or plain distilled water.
You can fix the developed film for 10 minutes in any common type of acidic fixing bath, or for at least 3 minutes in a rapid fixer. Temperature range should be 18-25C / 65-77F.
You should rinse your negatives thoroughly after fixing. To save water, you can exchange fresh water 8-10 times, as opposed to simply using running water for a long period of time. A rinse in wetting agent before drying will help reduce drying marks and help preserve your negatives.

Making things a bit more interesting ...
Try these different exposure and development techniques to alter the look of your images:
rate your film at ISO 200 (develop as 400) in order to give it more light -- blooming highlights, increased shadow detail, less overall contrast
pull develop your film -- less contrast, more shadow detail, "control" the highlights
pull means to overexpose your film and compensate during development (develop for less time)
push develop your film -- more contrast, more grain, deeper blacks and shadows
push means to underexposed your film in camera, and compensate during development (develop for more time)
