    Film and developer combo. Your choices are...

    My choices are...

    PanF+ & Rodinal 1+100 (5ml + 500ml) full-stand. After reading shaping tone curve with rodinal article I will go with 1+50 with minimal agitation.

    Also, I am happy with HP5+ @ Atomal 49 1+1 for 10mins.

    Currently I am picking up the pieces to build the darkroom and this question would have been more appropriate in combo with paper but...

    CHS art films, especially iso 25, any format, in Pyrocat-HD. Followed by TMY shot at 200 developed in Rodinal 1+50 any format, mostly 4x5 though.

    It may be familiar for many but I find this useful article on developing times.

    Delta 100 & 400, also HP5 developed in Pyrocat HD, also Fomapan 100 & 200 and EFKE 25 in Pyrocat.

    Alternatively Rodinal or Xtol but the Pyrocat negatives are slightly easier to print

    it seems like it would be a good thing
    to pick 1 film and a basic developer ( and a paper and basic developer ) that are available where you live ..
    and use that film and developer ( and paper/developer ) for a year or maybe two, to learn all
    what your film/paper and developers have to offer you. then you will be
    able to use your camera, film / paper " in unison " to achieve negatives
    suited to you .

    what tends to happen is people get side tracked using 10 different films, 10 different developers, 10 different papers, 10 different developers
    and come up for air a year or 2 later wondering why they are in the same place they started ...

    its good to know and be able to predict how your "photographic system" will work in a variety of different situations
    and using 1 developer/film/paper is a very good way of doing that ...

    good luck !
