    I just wanna thank everyone who recommended me that film developer combination :)

    I shot a roll of Trix 400 rated at 1600, pushed it in D-76 and it's great (and a 2,50 euros cheaper than Ilford's Hp5 Plus - my fav film).

    Trix rocks.

    Yeah, I'm still kicking myself for not using more of it over the years.

    I'm so glad it worked out for you - I've used that so often I don't even think about it anymore. :lol:

    So, does this mean you have some new pictures for us? :D

    I'm writing this down, because I just shot a roll of TriX 400, although I rated it at 400. I'm saving that roll until my darkroom is ready, so I guess D-76 is a good developer huh? :)

    Best one for Tri-X in my opinion.
    I would point out that Ilford's ID-11 is virtualy chemically identical to D-76 so you can use that if you can't get the real thing.

    One which Ansell Adams used quite alot was tri-X pro developed
    in HC-110, 'B' solution. He made 16x20 prints from 35 negs, not bad!
    There are books on the market giving film- developer combinations.

    but it's ok, HP5 Plus and TriX are my fav films, and D-76 is pretty good.
