    I chose 3 - only because I'll go to the next on the list, if the former isn't available.

    1. Atomal FF (still got a couple of bags left, and they're still going strong)
    2. D76 - stock standard that you truly can't go wrong with, and almost any store will have it on the shelf if I get in trouble.
    3. Rodinal - not had a lot of experience with this developer, but the Agfa films I processed in this looked good, but I'll admit I haven't used it on other films.

    Have used ID11 in college - pretty much the same as D76; in all honesty, my Atomal FF is my favourite and I have it matched to my shooting down to a T. The others - they give me good, usable negs, although they can be a bit "thick" at times. (Purely my errors - not the dev!)

    Rodinal & ID-11 Lately I have been mixing the two for an interesting outcome. Nice. It has the good effects of both. 1-3 ID-11 diluted in 1-100 Rdnl

    T-Max RS for Kodak films and Delta 3200. D76 for everything else except pushing Tri-X to 1250. For that I use Diafine. So I use three.

    Well, as you all know i am new to film and first time i did process my film was in 2010, then 2011 i stopped due to dad death and left job, 2012 recovering year, now in this year i will try to get back to film photography.

    That period in the past i was using 3 developers, Ilfosol 3, TMAX and D-76, out of three TMAX and Ilfosol 3 where my favorite, but in 2011 i think or 2012 i started to use HC-110 [Dil H] and loved it, so this became also another favorite developer, now i have 3 nice developer i like results of it i am going to test 3-4 more developers, Diafine, Pyrocat HD, Rodinal when i will make it from scratch if i succeed, and maybe XTOL which i bought so long time ago and never opened it yet, i have ID-11 but it is same as D-76 which i didn't like much even i got good nice results but not on par as mentioned devs, also i have Microphen, and i have ingredients for Caffenol too.

    Caffenol is for tests only.
    Microphen for Delta high speed films [Delta 3200].
    XTOL is my first dream dev but its 5-L made me to change my mind to use it.
    Pyrocat-HD for my LF films [When i will prepare it from scratch later].
    Rodinal for last long dev needed when some of my devs are dead or exhausted quickly and for stand dev.
    Diafine is for push processing.
