Without wishing to directly contradict Thomas (whose counsel is worth listening to), it's worth saying that while this is excellent advice for someone who enjoys doing one thing until it is perfected, it can be a bit stultifying for someone who likes to try new things or is easily bored.

If you feel like trying different films and developers, do go ahead. The down side of doing so of course that consistency is harder to come by.
