    Is HC-110 no more?

    I havenít been keeping up with the Kodak news. Canít find it anywhere, has Kodak stop making HC-110? Is Kodak planning a come back on HC-110, if so when? If not, what is a good developer replacement ? Should I use Ilford Ilfotec HC or some other? I shoot T-max 100, 400 and Try-x sheet films. Iíve used HC-110 for years and like the results. What are your thoughts for a substitution?

    I sure haven't had any trouble getting it in this part of the world. And there are alleged direct substitutes, like the one
    Freestyle sells, though I haven't had any reason to try them yet.

    I think it has been discontinued I tried to buy some about a month ago and could not find any available to purchase. I wanted to try it HC-110 because it comes in a liquid concentrate but i guess I will stick with the X-Tol ive been using

    Adorama and B&H list it as "discontinued", "no longer available".

    HC-110, and its replenisher, are still listed on Kodak's site. But then they also have a 2003 tech sheet for Microdol-X up, and that's been discontinued for a few years, hasn't it? Perhaps our big NYC retailers aren't interested in shipping liquids anymore.

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    There was a lengthy thread on this over on APUG. Apparently Kodak discontinued the small bottle we're all familiar with here in the US, and introduced a larger bottle under a different SKU number. You can get it from Freestyle.

    Yeah, just a packaging and shipping thing. Even the local camera store carries it here.

    If you are worried about it, buy a LARGE bottle. It keeps several decades. K

    My local brick and mortar store (Henry's on Queen St), doesn't stock the pint (473ml) bottles anymore, only the quart (946ml). Supply of anything darkroom or film related is getting spotty over there, so I've decided to switch to XTOL because if I have to I can order it (or Eco-Pro), from B&H or Freestyle.

    I see Freestyle has it in a large 16L bottle, maybe. Iíve tried B&H and Amazon; they do not have it. It looks like I may will need to change my developers, which means more developing tests. I do not shoot a lot of film all at once which makes HC-110 convenient. Iíve never used XTOL due to that I would have to mix 5 liters at a time. To all you masters of the darkroom: whatís the shelf life after mixing XTOL and has anyone used Ilford Ilfotec HC? Thanks
