    i'd be happy with a handful of different films and only ansco 130.
    after souping 35 sheets of film in xtol the other night, and souping the "twin in the film holder" in ansco 130, there isn't another developer for sheet film i would rather use.

    I like to be able to choose different film speeds so I'll go with only one developer (assuming I'm the one that gets to pick it<g>)..

    OK Neal, I'm feeling generous, you can pick the soup.

    What would it be?

    If the only film left was Tri-X Professional, then I would opt for one film and many developers.

    If the only developer left was D-76 or HC-110, then I would opt for many films and one developer.

    Otherwise... I don't know.

    Lots of films, one developer. That gives more flexibility in terms of possible film speeds, which is important to me. Besides, I can always mix my own developer.

    p.s. forget about mixing your own soup as that is not allowed.
    This is a totally unrealistic restriction, so I reject it.

    I'll take any film as long as it's 400TMax and don't much care about the developer as long as it's either ABC pyro or Harvey's 777.

    As it is, I've only used one developer and film for the last 15 years. If everyone were on the same page, then we would spend less time talking about it and more time doing it and I bet we could really get more out of every square inch of the film we used.

    YMMV
