    Sorry, but your post is incomplete. You are supposed to go on to say how this means you will NOT be supporting some other company that has done you some sort of perceived ill or wronged you in a horrible, I'm-takin'-this-personally kind of way.

    Do better next time!

    I love the Tri-X and will use it forever if I can. That and Ilford FP4 are my two mainstay films.

    Brad, if you're handy with a cutter, you get two 5x7 sheets from one 8x10... I haven't seen much transparency film in 5x7. Seems like it's a b&w kind of format.

    Just returned from my favorite camera shop where I put some $$ down on a Nikon 50mm AF 1.8.

    Hey Brad,

    I had the exact same thoughts after reading the "I switched chemicals" thread

    That's awesome. I wish I could get to like HC-110. I'm probably doing something wrong. Mixing it straight from the concentrate, is that okay?
    It's sticky and messy, like maple syrup. I have a few lab pipettes and none can pull this stuff. Didn't mean to jack your thread, but how do you use HC-110?

    Phillip,

    I use Dilution B mixed from concentrate. That is one ounce syrup to 31 ounces water. I start with about 16 ounces of water, then measure 1 ounce of HC-110 syrup using a tall Paterson graduate. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...5oz_45ml_.html

    I pour the syrup into the water, then fill the graduate with water 6-8 times until all the syrup is out of the graduate and mixed with the water. Fill the quart graduate to 32 ounces, stir and develop film.

    Works like a charm,
    John Bowen

    HC-110, good stuff, all-purpose dev. Yes, mix it straight from the bottle. I use a syringe from the drug store. It will pull it up for you and is great for using small amounts of devs like HC-100, Rodinal or Pyrocat.

    I can't say whether you're doing something wrong or not. Some devs just don't click with some people. It can sometimes take several rolls before you hit it.
