great photos ! but got a really (REALLY) basic question
The instructions say to mix dd-x 1+4
so thats 1 parts dd-x and 4 parts water ...
however on something like the 'massive dev film chart'
there is options for dd-x stock and dd-x (1+4)

my question : when some says they use dd-x (1+4) does that mean
1 part dd-x and 4 parts water
1 part dd-x (already diluted as per ilford instructions) AND 4 parts water?

Hi chi_p - My bad, I'm just now seeing your comment. I use 1+4, meaning take 1 part DDX straight and 4 parts water. I haven't diluted before mixing, I think the DD-X instructions are poorly written now that I look at it. Hope this helps.
