    After years of processing film we have three basic standards

    D76 - for low light and normal lighting conditions,, end uses are varied but I
    like pushing a bit the dev and printing lith or solarizations with this dev.

    Pyro- our standard developer for strong lighting conditions.. we recommend over exposure by one stop minimum and we develop accordingly.

    HC110- multi purpose developer with different dilutions and times.
    this is a go to developer with tri x for lith negs. under expose over develop.
    this is the developer I process my film from the image recorder.
    this is the developer I used for enlarged negative applications.

    All three are amazing developers if used for the intended purpose.

    I'd get something that is distinct from D-76, as there's little point in duplicating what you already do and produce.

    With that in mind, I'm going to suggest Rodinal. It gives distinct results, and its practical sides (cheap, lasts forever, easy to mix liquid) are pretty compelling.

    Cool,

    So playing to the strengths of the combos involved.

    In that case, like Bob, I'd suggest the overexposure route on your Tri-X with a Pyro for one and I might use a slower film like FP4 in Pyro for two.

    For three maybe Tri-X in DD-X, at box speed and pushed.

    Will this ever going to stop??????????

    After D-76?

    you still got a lot of D-76... let´s go...: divided bath d-76, d-76 straight, d-76 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4, 1:5, d-76 plus sodium chloride, temperature variations, sulfite tweaking, substituting borax (supposedly makes grain a bit fuzzier as i stated compared to sodium carbonate and also stated by geoffrey crawley), substituting metol and/or hidroquinone,agitation..


    well every change in development changes the look, even if it´s just a bit.

    set with few developers and take pictures...

    ex: one for high acutance like fx-1
    one for everything like PC-TEA or x-tol or D-76
    one for fine grain like d-25 or D-76 + sodium chloride

    but take it easy, D-76 is fine, dilute it
    vive la resistance!
