    Which developer to try next.

    I have been using ilfosol-s for a while now and want to try something different. I have been thinking about rodinal or perhaps one of the pyro based developers and thought I would ask your opinion. In the past I have mainly shot on delta 100, though I am going to try FP4 and a perhaps Agfapan.

    Since you shoot 35mm, I would suggest you keep your developer, but switch to Pan-F and FP4+. But then again I have a deep dislike of Delta 100, and an equally deep love of FP4+ in Ilfosol-S.

    I have used APX100 and FP4 extensively. Both work well in either Rodinal, HC110 (dil B) or PyroCat-HD. Each developer has it's own look, so experiment to find out what it looks like for you. Then use the appropriate developer for the creative expression you want to produce. BTW I have used FP4 at both 64 and 125 asa's with PyroCat-HD. The 64 asa was with LF and the 125 asa in 35mm. Each produced excellent negs.

    Developers are cheap, so go nuts!

    Just our of curiosity, what is the Kodak equiv of Ifosol-S?

    While I have been shooting 35mm I just picked up an old Yashica Mat-124G Friday, so I will be using MF as well. This is actualy what prompted me to start looking at diffrent film/developer combos.

    I think APX100 and Rodinal 1:50 is the best (in my opinion, of course). Pan F+ and FP4+ are also great in Rodinal.... so basically what I'm saying is that I love Rodinal. I'm not a big fan of the Delta films, so I don't have a lot of experience with those. And I am just starting to try pyro developers, I have only tried WD2D+ thus far, and I really like it with APX100. -Grant

    Another vote for Rodinal and against the Delta range other than Delta 3200.

    Film suggestions are Pan F (25-50);FP4+ (50-200); HP5+ (200-1600) - I love Ilford films
    Other possible developers ID-11 or D-76. DD-X if you like fluffy grain.

    All just my personal preferences of course.

    I think I'll try FP4 and APX100 with rodinal then. Thanks for your advise.

    I use FP4 and Alta Zonal Pro developer.

    No huge reason, I just like the results.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    FP4 in Ilfosol-S is even better in MF - that's all I used when I did "commercial" work! The only reason I don't use Ilfosol-S now is that I don't use enough film to keep the supply fresh. It turned out I was the only one in Bergen who used it...
