    My option would be a lot of films with one developer: XTOL

    Many films one developer. I tried DD-X, its ok, but I've found rodinal to be easier to use, so my one dev would be the white bottle in the red box!

    I'll take lots of films with one dev. To me, the flavor of a photo is more in the film than the dev.

    Scaring. Until now we all agree, what's wrong ?
    I was about to start a thread about developer differences.
    I wondered how e.g. Ilfosol S, Ilfotec LC29 and microdoll X differs just to name a few.

    "I`ll take the lots of film. I can mix any kind of developer I need"

    Sorry Ronald but I said mixing your own soup was not permitted. Does this affect your answer?


    "Scaring. Until now we all agree, what's wrong ?"

    Actually Soeren I am going to throw a spanner in the works as I would prefer one film with a good choice of different developers. The film could be pushed or pulled and so many different results could be got by using different developers.

    Developers can affect the look of a picture but they can't make one film look like a different film or radically change the film speed. So I would take many films and one developer.

    Moving your hypothetical question to a more realistic scenario where such situations would be forced upon us by manufacturers -- it's easier to mix your own developer than it is to coat your own film.

    If mixing my own developer is not permitted, can I at least add a pinch of Metol to an existing soup? Then I'll go for Kodak HCA - which isn't a developer, but dilute it enough, add a pinch of metol and a little soda - Hey Presto: Beutler's!
