    On a regular basis, one for films (D-76) and one for papers (54-D). But I explore others on fairly frequently, and I sometimes find some excellent developers. Windisch 665 and Pyrocat HD are among the excellent developers I've tried. Sometimes I also mix up a special developer for special use, like D-19 or D-67 or a warm-tone paper developer.

    I realize that I should also have ticked off the "lab" choice as well.

    I let the lab develop my Ilford C41 black and white film.

    Which developer you use for LF sheets? I don't have any problems using any developers for 120 rolls, but few developers stating it is not suitable for sheets and only normal process such as TMAX, so what is your recommendation? Rodinal is out of availability for me.

    how many developers do you use, or have you settled on one

    The problem with this poll is we constantly change, wish the poll was fully open so you could choose different choices as you evolve.

    hey tareq

    it is only tmax that is not recommended for sheets,
    if you can get ahold of tmax rs you will be OK with sheet films.
    the RS version of TMAX developer is formulated to work,
    the other version ( without the RS ) is not ... AND you can use
    the tmax rs with roll film &c and it can be replenished if that is something
    you like doing

    good luck waiting for that lens !

    Thanks John!

    I think i better go with something else rather than Tmax for sheets, there are many developers to choose, so i may go back to D-76 and give it a try for sheets, if no go then HC-110 is my new fav dev anyway.

    I'm catching up with APUG threads, I've been away and travelling. Just processed a backlog of 104 sheets of 4x5, 320TXP and HP5+, all in XTol 1:1. I've been using XTol this way for a good few years now, it has been my only film developer.

    Now I wonder what have I been missing, and I have an itch to go back to D76 (but XTol seems kinder to the environment), or even to my roots with Rodinal.

    Xtol, Rodinal, D76

    Xtol for tmax films, acros, agfa pan 250, panatomic-x, sometimes for plus x and fp4+.
    Rodinal for Eastman XX, occasionally tri-x.
    D76 for tri-x, neopan 400, plus x and fp4+.

    Color I send out though.
