I was going to stick to MG RC for paper and maybee some MG FB when I am settled in again (I remember really liking FB papers when I last had a darkroom).
    Those sound like reasonable choices, although I confess to not knowing much about Ilford's paper developers, so I can't comment on that aspect of it.

    Yes DDX gives a little "boost" to speed, which means gives good detail in the shadows.

    DDX is awesome with Ilford Fps,Hps and Delta films, Fuji Neopan 400 and Acros, Fomapan, Efke 100, AGFA APX100, etc. I normally shoot them at box speed.

    IIRC it was developed by Ilford from their old Dip and Dunk (hence DD) for household use (the X)

    Also the working solution can be reused in the same session, I normally develop 5 or 6 rolls of 35mm and 120 so I do 4 or 5 batches in one night.
    Adding a 10% of the time per batch is reccomended by Ilford and it works very well and may extend the umber of films you can develop with 1 bottle of DDX.
    Anyway 29 Eu seems extremely expensive, the price has increased in my local store but it is in the oder of $18/l

By the way, I read on the Ilford site that DD-X was developed for Delta 3200 films and that "With some fast films such as DELTA3200,DELTA400 and HP5 Plus a it gives an effective speed enhancement".... perhaps it is one to try when using HP5+ then.
    Mama took my APX away.....

    Thanks again to all those who have helped me with this. Today I ordered some ID-11 to start my home developing experience.... exiting times. Will stick to as few films as possible. I promise!
