        Comments about Ilford ID-11 Film Developer:

        I recently only got into developing Black and White film so ID-11 is my first developer. So far it has worked wonders! It's super simple to mix into stock solution and the develop times provided by Ilford are very acurate!
        I recommend this as an amazing and inexpensive developer solution!

                If you want to mess with multiple dilutions, hard to read charts and confusing instructions it works fine. I'll stick with the one shot, use and toss liquid developers.

                  This worked exactly as described. I used it to develop some Ilford HP5 Plus and every thing came out great for me. As long as you have air tight containers to store you stock in this is quite a deal with 5 liters of stock for just [$].

                      I've switched to this developer after using HC-110 for a number of years.
                      I've found it to produce great results developing the Fuji Acros @ its standard ISO. Sharp, detailed images with a great range. Awesome!

                          I've been using D-76 for a while, and there is, at least for me, a noticeable improvement in the quality and clarity of the detail I get with Id-11.
