    hi all, i am just beginning to work with rodinal and have developed a few rolls of neopan 400 at a dilution of 1:50. i want to try some acros (120 roll) at box speed in the same dilution, but the massive developing chart does not list the time for this combination. does anyone know the proper developing time for acros at asa 100 in rodinal 1:50? and what agitation do you use? thanks.

    developing acros in rodinal 1:50

    Try 10 mins @ 20Celcius, agitation according to Rodinal: prewash 1-2 mins, 1st min continuous, then 1x every 30 secs. Water stop. Fix as usual. I got EI80 with 120 film and 100 with 4x5". Hope this will help.

    I have had great success developing Acros (@ asa100) for 10 minutes in 1:50 rodinal @ 20degC as well. I will tell you that this combination is most successful if you use VERY slow agitation... I do 4 inversions (forward twisting-backward twisting = 1 inversion) in 10 seconds, and do this each minute for the 10 minutes.

    I never pre-soak, and I only use water for a stop bath between developer & fixer.

    Hope this helps. I LOVE Acros! :smile:

    BTW... here's a shot I did using the equivalent of the above for 35mm:

    Same as for ISO 100 unless scene brightness range is abnormal.
