The end of my time with D76

I queried the darkroom guy at my local camera store today about the availability of Kodak chemistry. He said that the plant producing it (same as it ever was) won't start cranking it out until Jan 30 (don't know why that date, probably production scheduling), and that he's expecting product to start arriving in early March. He said they have a lot of it on order.

Was also told March onwards for new Kodak chemistry by supplier here in London. Awaiting developments 😉

I've been using D76, alongside Rodinal, as my only developers for over 40 years. Just processed a roll with the last drops of my last bottle of Kodak D76 stock. There's no more D76 available in the UK.

I I've never liked ID11, so for me that's not an option.

Hello Mike,

I use Kodak D76 too. What is it about ID11 that you find unsatisfactory compared to D76?

I know that D76 uses a different buffering system than ID11 but not sure what  visual differences in the negatives or prints you have observed.

Absolutely no difference ever observed.  It’s the packaging I dislike. Completely irrational and personal viewpoint with no merit outside my own darkroom. I happily use many other Ilford products, film, chemicals and paper but the graphic design on the packaging of their powdered developers drives me nuts!

Anything you like here ? Some of these are very old ones that I inherited.

Getting close with the R09, although a mid 80's bottle of Agfa Rodinal would have me weak at the knees. 😁

So may be here is something for you;-)
For the first one: Not sure if it's mid 80's. Could be from the 90's.
For the second I would guess late 60's or 70's. Still working!
