    If you're talking about film developers, I use Ilford ID-11. My 'standard' film is FP4+, which I develop in ID-11 @ 1:3 for 20 mins @ 20 degrees. This combo gives me the results I want (fine grain, good sharpness, full tonal range) with the minimum of fuss. ID-11 also keeps for ages as a liquid stock under the correct conditions. I can't be bothered with expensive esoteric brews that give little advantage. That said, I have some 10 year old Perceptol to use up
    one day...

    Cheers,

    I started off with rodinal, used it for
    A few years before I really started testing and becoming immersed in developing.

    Then I moved into hc110 b for a while an loved the results. But I wanted a replenished developer.

    Next was xtol, used it for about 1 year and never really liked it too much.

    Then moved to d76 for its classical look and loved it but was not shooting as much so I am back to hc110 b

    I included hot (120F) water for developing my carbon prints.
    Potassium oxalate for platinum/palladium
    Ilford PQ Universal and Dektol for sheet film (and Dektol for silver gelatin paper)
    D-76 for roll film, and for sheet film when I do not need the major contrast boost.
    Plus odds and ends, such as D-19 for contrast (someday). Technol for Tech Pan
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I use 3. My choices are based on availability. I like using Tetenal Ultrafin and Ultrafin Plus, and Kodak HC-110. Given the state of Kodak, I'm trying to stock up on HC-110, but knowing the Tetenal gives me some good choices.

    I shoot TMX, medium format. I use three developers. Which one I use depends on the contrast in the scene.

    For high contrast scene--ID-3 (metol only developer, low sulfite)

    For medium contrast scene--Rodinal (Adonal)

    For low contrast scene--D-19

    I use Pyrocat HD for nearly all my sheet and 120 film these days using contant agitation.

    At one point in time, i ran into issues with pyrocat and roll film with anomalies at the edges during stand development, and switched to TMAX dev 1:4.... I know how to use it, but have since gone back to pyrocat HD again

    And lastly Diafine..... a catch all developer for most of my 35mm film, allowing me to develop non similar films together in the same tank.
    Please check out my website www.amoxomphotography.com and APUG Portfolio .....

    HC-110, and Rodinal because i like the tones of both and the acutance of rodinal, but sometimes rodinal is not ideal.

    E6 and C41, for obvious reasons

    Mostly Rodinal (of which I still have a boatload) and, with some films, HC-110 (of which I didn't stash enough, so Ilfotec HC lately).
