Hi Martin,

Hi Michael,

HP5 in ID-11 is a great combo. Very reliable. It is one of two developers that I regularly use with this film.

One thing to be careful about with ID-11 is storage - full bottles...

Quick update: picked up two 19L jugs of distilled water today, plus a hand pump. It was so reasonably priced that it really wasn't worth it to get a Brita. It should last ages...or all winter at...
