    ID-11 diluted 1+1 is very hard to beat, although I personally use Kodak D-76.
    It can be used undiluted, although there is a slight initial fog and less shadow detail with some slow and medium speed films when exposed at box speed. I much prefer the results when the developer is diluted 1+1 with FP4 Plus and HP5 Plus. I use it undiluted with Kodak HIE infra-red film.

    DDX is too expensive.

    Xtol OK it's not Ilford, so ID-11 then.

    No ID-11 full strength and replenished, far higher quality and very much more economic. That's how D76/ID-11 is really designed to be used.

    ID-11. You can soup any film made with it, you can use it 1+0 for a fine-grain effect, dilute it 1+1 for a compromise or dilute it 1+3 for an accutance look. It's not great at anything; there are better devs out there that will top it in any one catagory, but ID-11 is good at EVERYTHING!

    With costs and quality in mind, ID-11 in a packet to make 5 liters.
