    I mostly develop B&W PlusX 125 and TMax 100 in my darkroom. When I first started developing film 35 years ago, I mostly used D-76, and then in college in the early 1980s I used mostly Microdol-X. When I built my darkroom a couple of years ago, I started using X-Tol developer for my film, but have not been real happy with it.

    I am now back to using Microdol-X and now getting the results I have been looking for.

    What B&W film developer do you like to use?

    I like HC-110, it keeps for ages with consistent results!
    I geet nice shadow and highlight detail with moderate grain.
