    Rodinal, usually 1+100 but I've tried 1+300 for a 2.5 hour stand
    HC-110, B or G
    XTOL 1+1
    D-76
    Pyrocat HD
    PMK Pyro
    TD-3 (I bought this for Technical Pan but I actually prefer Rodinal for it and this stuff is rotting)

    Really is a very versatile combination, but having said that I use three mainly, Pyro-cat HD, PMK, and Rodinal.I still use a little ID11 on occasion

    Looking at the poll we are mostly monogamous or bigamist!

    Dang, I can't possibly read all the posts...

    Like Ralph Lambrecht, I always use D-76 1:1.

    Lately I've been experimenting with Dektol for Tri-X for tkamiya.

    For someday... I have a pack of Microdol-X and a half bottle of TMax developer and some Technidol powder and liquid on hand.

    But generally D-76 1:1.

    I think the most interesting take-away so far is that after 126 votes no one selected the lab processing option.

    I'm sure there are some but they are probably embarrassed about it :-p

    Mainly shoot 120 and use D76 or Xtol with Tri-X, Neopan 400, HP5, TMY2.
    Rodinal for anything slower: FP4, Efke 25. Acros.
    Love the convenience and longevity of HC-110, but it doesn't seem to look as good as the D76 or Xtol tones.

    I'm one of them! I'm at a strange place right now. Just this week I began making b&w prints in my bathroom for the first time in years, but I'm not set up for developing film; it was always my least favorite part of the whole process. I'm mostly printing older negatives that have never been printed.

    And I've been shooting mostly color for a long time, but every once in a while I get the itch to shoot b&w. I don't know if it would be worth it to me to soup my own b&w negatives since I don't shoot it that often. I'm considering it though; the lab recently made a hash of my last roll of Kodak P3200.
