    So many developers, and so little time to use all of them :}...even with your criteria, as many answers as there are members of APUG...my vote is for DDX at 1:9....others named work just as well. Simply test your film using whatever developer you choose and your results will be fine.

    Let us know what you decide to use, and best of luck.

    If it's your style, then welcome to the Church of Rodinal. Don't hear that too much any more, but there used to be Rodinal wars.

    (Sounds like a great Sci-Fi novel.)
    Developed a roll of FP4 in Rodinal at the weekend for the first time in ages. I'd forgotten what punchy negatives it produces. For other options, don't overlook Fotospeed FD10, which is very forgiving and capable of fine results. It's cheap and the concentrate lasts for months, even it part-used bottles. Development times given seem a bit ambitious, though, and at 1 + 9 and 20 degs C I find a good ten mins are needed.

    Best wishes,

    Steve

    Hi again
    You say Ilford devs are cheap here!!
    At AG Photographic, they are 3x more expensive!
    Anyway, I have just decided. HC-110 is for me!!
    It lasts ages and is Great Value!!
    Thanks for your help
