    As it is still impossible to get my hands on ID-11 I am wondering if anyone has processed Konica IR750 in Ilfotec LC29?
    Also, i have bought a couple o rolls of Tri-X for some portrait work. Is ilfotec or Ilfosol a good developer for this film? I don't want to stock up on too many chemicals so m looking to use what I have if possible.

    I've learned that Konica IR750 acts very similar to Tech Pan film as far as development and curves, as a matter of fact it will do well in Technidol at the same times as Tech Pan, so if you have times for Tech Pan in that developer it would make a good starting point.

    Ilfotec will be fine for both films. US photographers used to swear by Tri-X in HC110 and Ilfotec is Ilfords equivalent.
