I've been using d-76 powder for a few months now and, after developing a roll today, discovered that it had become tired. Today's roll was really under developed and I had the same problem with my last two rolls as well. I should've known when I saw that it had the color of cat pee when I poured out of the bottle. Fixer, I'll continue to use the powder, but for film, I think I'll make friends with liquid. You only have to mix small quantities at a time and they fit into a smaller space. With that said, I've been using tri-x and fomapan. I've looked at t-max developer as well as arista (freestyle) and am thinking of going with the arista. What do you folks think?
