    You can always find different times and different solutions here with different films,

    but what agitation do you normally use? Agfa`s??

    Thanks!

    This applies to all film-developer combo's, not only for Rodinal.
    It would be a great extention to the MDC on digitaltruth.com

    Whenever I try a new developer in my soup, I follow my own agitation scheme. It's easier to stick to it and adjust dev.time than using x agitation schemes and remember them all.

    If your talking about film- 30 sec at start and then 5 sec. every 30 after.:cool:
    If your talking about people- usually a sharp stick to the ribs works well.:D

    I depends, when time is in the order of:
    - 10 minutes - 30 secs then once every minute
    - 30 minutes - 30 secs then once every other minute
    - 1 hour - 30 secs then once every while

    This is pretty much what I do, too.

    If I am in for some contrast I agitate to times every 30 sec.
