    Consensus seems to be to go with TMAX, so I'll just do that!

    Thanks!!

    Although not 100% unanimous, is this the first Film/Developer-combo thread on APUG to have ever come to a consensus? Whoa!

    LOL!

    Consensus seems to be:

    1. XTOL
    2. TMAX
    3. D-76 (ID-11)

    Another question that I come think about in the store (after the lab guy was gone), they had a bag with D-76 for mixing a gallon, and on the bag it clearly said that the content should not be portioned and mixed for smaller volumes.

    Why is this? Is the content of the powder mix not evenly distributed, or has it something to do with storing an open bag of powder?

    Interesting discussions, seems it shouldn't really be a big deal splitting a bag then, though probably easier anyway to mix the full gallon and store in accordion bottles...

    Oh well, I only bought the liter bag after all anyway, though I was just curios...

    TMAX should work great as well from all of the recommendations I've read. I've never used it because shipping liquids is expensive, but if you can get that, go for it.

    And pretty much all films work well with D-76.

    I grabbed their last bag of D-76 (for mixing a gallon) today, and another 2 l. accordion bottle, so now I have filled the locker here with both D-76 and TMAX enough for a while.

    Question: Is there a minimum amount of developer needed per roll/tank?? If I decide to dilute mixed developer 1:1 for one shot, and run in my Paterson 2 or 3 reel tanks (with 2 or 3 films), that's gonna be ok?


    Thanks!

    Make sure you have at least 100ml of stock developer per roll. More is better.

    Suggestion: Go buy that developer!! And then find some old Kodak Technical pan film.

    A perfect wedding!! (Much better than the original Kodak developer INMO)
