Subject says it all.
Lee, you dont do well on comprehension tests now do you?
Xtol as my first choice for that film. Similar in technology to TMax I think and TMax loves Xtol.
For some god information about HC110 to help you decide go to this site:
That resource recommends HC110 for high contrast negs and XTOL for Normal. Also Dil D (1-39 from syrup) if your development times are under 5min. The site has mixing and dilution charts, history and other usefull info.
I will have to say I have tried Delta 400 in both Rodinal and HC110 as well as XTOL and PMK. I agree with the previous posts that either XTOL or PMK is better overall. In high contrast HC110 holds its own. I would get blown highlights with Rodinal 1-50, but stand development or greater dillutions may work. I am just not a fan of Rodinal in fast films.
Delta 400 in Xtol 1+2:
Delta 400 in Rodinal 1+24:
Sorry, no HC-110.
I've persoanlly opted for xtol 1+1 for delta (my primatry film) and rodinal 1+25 for tri-x, fuji, and fortepan
rodinal can be a harch mistress for tabular films, even tight ones like tmax 100
I have used hc110 and rodentall and I don't like either much. PMK is a better deal for me. That's all.
None of the above.--Perceptol.
