    Sorry Ed, that's just unforgivable ( I do my c-41 in Walgreen's, Dev. only)

    For B&W, I like Edwal FG7 diluted in 9% Sodium Sulfite for smooth grain with fast films and plain water for slow films.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I guess if I were to list the ones I use the most it would be XTOL for all film formats and HC110 for some LF applications. I have pretty much standardized on using Delta 100 and Trix for 35mm and the XTOL produces great tonal range, and as Thomas pointed out, it has great flexibility with dillutions. Of course there is the occasional TriX or HP5 in Rodinal and I am moving more towards PMK for sheet films.

    I use Pyrocat-HD a lot, but voted for "other". I use the Pyrocat-HD mostly for 5x7" and some 4x5", and Beutler's for smaller sizes which won't be contact printed. Unless the contrast range is extreme, in which case I'll use Maxim Muir's compensating Pyrocatechin - or divided D23.

    Trying to simplify my life - I use Diafine for all sizes/types of film, with an occasioal experiment (eg, pyro-HD).

    I use HC110 mostly and sometimes Rodinal. I shoot mostly Agfa APX in 120 and Ilford HP5+/FP4+ in 4x5. I would really like to try PMK/Pyro but I hear it's very bad for septic systems.

    You have *NO* idea how ashamed I am. For penance, I went to my darkroom and deliberately lightstuck two sheets of 16" x 20" Ilford MG Portfolio.
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!! :roll:

    No kidding!! - You develop slow black and white film in plain water? I thought I was being cheap!! What times are you using?
