    Which films with...

    Okay folks dawn your flame retardant suits.....

    I am about to pick up some HC110 (either today or tomorrow), of the following films, are there any you would NOT recommend to use with it:

    Ilford FP4, Ilford Delta 100, Kodak Tmax 100, Ilford HP5, Ilford Delta 400, Kodak Tmax 400.

    If you think one of them should NOT be used with HC110, could you please provide a reason.

    Thanks

    I can speak for the TMX and TMY. HC110 yields great results for me at Dil B for six minutes. Thirty seconds constant but gentle agitation and two inversions every 30 second afterwards. Processed at 68F 20C. Great contrast for the fineness of grain in those films.
    Thank you.

    Oh, and that's for 135 and 120 rolls films.
    Thank you.

    I'm a firm believer that if you work long and hard enough with a combination of film and developer you can reach good results with any two paired together, unless it's a task specific developer, such as lith developer, etc. You know what I mean.

    The rest is a matter of taste.

    As far as I know HC110 will work with any of the mention films.

    I've only used it with HP-5 and TX, but had good results. Thomas has a great point, you really can achieve the results you after with almost any combo.

    The biggest problem with this sort of enquiry is that your range of films is so wide that fine tuning your development could end up being a long and potentially confusing process.

    For example, an adjustment that works for FP4 might worsen the results from TMax 400.

    I've only used it with the Kodak films on your list, but am happy to confirm that HC110 works well with them.

    Should work well with all of the above films and really any monochrome film if you take the time to experiment a little and fine tune. My preference is for Dilution H and minimal agitation. Good luck and enjoy using HC-110.

    What you might find is that for some films is that development times for the popular Dilution B might become very short (5 minutes or less).

    I would suggest trying dilution H over Dilution B. (I believe H is dil. B 1:1 with water, but verify before doing, please.) Great stuff, I used it for years before I became a pyro addict.

    Which is why I worded it the way I did. What I was looking for is things like it does horrible grain with this film, or really knocks the stuffing out of the tonality with that film.

    Here is the reasoning, I have used almost exclusively FP4 and HP5 with a little PanF for B&W for a donkeys age. Tried a roll of XP2 and was not impressed.

    I want to try the cubic grain films, so I figure I'll run a roll of FP4 and HP5 to see what the developer is like with films I know, then I'll buy a couple of rolls of each of the others, use them, process them, and see which ones I like.

    Now comes part 2 of my question:

    Are there any other cubic grain films I should add to my list. Not sure what Fuji has available in cubic grain films. I use only 35mm at the moment, I limit my films to those I can get here in Canada, so films that are only available in the US or Europe or Asia are of no use to me, I don't use enough film to warrant the hassle of dealing with customs and exchange.....
