    Some time ago someone gave me a link to a website that had all the development times for different films with different developer chemicals. For the life of me, I can't find it now and I didn't add it to my favourites at the time - can anyone point me in the direction?

    I need to know temps & times for ID-11 for KODAK T-MAX 100 and Ilford FP4

    Cheers

    Likely digitaltruth.com and their massive development chart. This is an ongoing and active compilation from many sources with many different methods and end uses for the negatives, but it can help get you started. Be sure to read any 'notes' for any given combination, and pay attention to which version of a particular film was used. The chart goes back far enough to cover films that have been revised in their currently available form.

    I would start here:

    http://www.ilfordphoto.com/Webfiles/20062161159472874.pdf

    The massive development chart is a useful tool. But, in my opinion, one must remember that there is a "wikipedia" aspect to it. It may or may not be accurate.

    You'll get combos on the MDC that may not be listed in the manufacturers charts. Wherever possible I'd check that the MDC times bear a passing ressemblance to the nearest manufacturer's combo. There seems to be times for all your films and ID 11 and initially I'd stick to the Ilford times. I have used ID11, Perceptol, Ilfosol and DDX and in my experience the Ilford times are pretty close to what's required for printable negs.

    An APUG search can often reveal peoples' times and it's always comforting when say 5-6 or more people give similar times.

    Check kodak.com for TMX, Ilford for FP4

    ID-11 and D76 are the same

    The advantages of using Kodak and Ilford is all the context their data provides

    Otherwise, you might as well as guess 8' or 11' and go from there. Since you don't know what
    informants at digitaltruth intended, and what they got, that data is, at the very best, speculative.
