I personally have not tried any yet but I will eventually face that inevidable decision. One concern is the shortened development time. For Tri-X, under 4 minutes for dilution B which makes it useless. Another experience from another board is that the emulsion is very soft and floats off the film.

Any thoughts, comments, experiences? </td></tr></table><span class='postcolor'>
M. Covington, http://www.covingtoninnovations.com/hc110/, has mentioned that he believes the Kodak times for Tri-X in HC110b to be erroneous. I hope so as that has been one of my stand-by combinations for several years.

Concerning Ilford&#39;s HP5, I find it rather soft when exopsing at an ISO of 200 and "normal" development in D76 (undiluted). Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Truly, dr bob.
