    That would be my recommendation too.

I also want to develop different branded films altogether in one (four reel) paterson tank.
    Would life be easier if you settled on one 400 speed film for this type of camera? When we use a simple camera that thwarts exposure control we use HP5+ and Microphen or DDX. I think that in addition to getting "box speed" you might want a bit more since metering can be a bit mean with those cameras. Hence our choice of Microphen/DDX.

    Seconded. True ISO of HP5 Plus in DDX or Microphen = 650+. Much better tonality with point-and-shoot metering at 400 or 320.

    But a lot of people confuse ISO and EI, and don't really understand what ISO means.

    Cheers,

    Shot a roll of 400tx in my Ricoh GR10 (bought as new from ebay for less than £10) this is a very slim pocket camera. It is not the exspensive Ricoh gr1. Developed the film in Ilford DDx and I like the look of the negs. I have not printed them yet but here is a neg I scanned. Thanks to everyone who contributed, when I have used up my present developers I shall try prescysol it is on my xmas list.
