    Go with HC110 or D-76.

    Is dissolving powder such a battle?

    I think DDX is excellent. Used two bottles of it several months ago and the negs are beautiful. If it weren't for the steep price I'd gladly use it as my main developer.

    On the other hand, I also can't see what's so difficult with dissolving powder.

    I love Rodinal - but for HP5+ I use HC110: so another vote for HC110

    I haven't tried it, but I understand the Sprint film developer, which is liquid, gives results very similar to D-76/ID 11. I came across an old review of Sprint system chemicals in, I think, Camera and Darkroom. I have used Sprint's liquid paper developer and rapid fixer and am satisfied with both.

    I'm sold on Pyrocat HD, also. Have been using the same bottle(s) for years.

For liquid developers I use Rodinal(APH09) and Pyrocat-HD. Both have extensivly long shelf lives and are easy to use. They all have their special "look" and produce excellent negatives when used for the right reason.

    That wasn't what we found when we tested them a few years ago, we found HC-110 gave larger grain and a slight drop in film speed. That's what Kodak indicate as well in there data (and still do).

    Guys I'm probably going to end up going with the HC-110 and I'm going to get some Rodinal to try as well.

    I just need to get some more bottles now. The prices here are ludicrous.

    while a valid question, it will get you no closer to an answer as there will so many choices to figure out.... Everyone has their own pet brew, but it could end up causing you too much heartburn. If you know ID-11, why change?
