    I have been searching message boards and photo sites, but i still can't decide on chemistry. I process most of my negs at home and my questions all revolve around Developers and fixer.

    I shoot Ilford B&W films, usually HP5 400asa either 35mm or 120mm (sometimes 125asa)

    In the past I used good ole D76 and Kodak rapid fix
    I really like Ilford products and have looked into Ilford D11 and Ilford fixxers, i'm just not sure if it's better or the same.
    What are you recemondations?

    ID11 is supposed to be exactly the same as D76, although the London b&w shop I use, Silverprint, reckon it is easier to mix. I'm about to start developing, and I'm probably going to go for ID11 to begin with.

    ID11 and D76 are formulated pretty much the same so they are interchangeable. You won't notice any difference swapping between them.
    I always preferred D76 though, but only because I preferred Kodak products.
