What would be the best developer for foma 100 stand developed?
i would say rodinal 1:100 for one hour
i dont think that d-76 is a developer for standdevelopment. (but maybe another one will know more about this)
edit found some times an dilutions http://www.photomalaysia.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1329858
its trix but as startpoint it should work
If those are your only choices, then definitly Rodinal.
you would suggest other developers?
Pyrocat-HD is excellent for stand develpment, as well as normal developing. My question to you is why stand development.
so I can switch the ISO setting on my camera on the same roll and still do 1 development.
Have you varied the ISO greatly or just a stop up or stop down? I would be thrilled if I could do more then one stop at a time.
1) get diafine 2) shoot at whatever EI you like
Diafine > rodinal
markrewald: I have varied greatly
olleorama: unfortunately i don't like the look of diafine at any speed
FX2 (TFX2) is suppose to be an ideal stand developer. The formula which incorporates metol prevents speed loss, and glycin which inhibits streaking. It is an acutance developer and generally used with slow to medium speed films. If your looking to vary exposure on a roll within a stop or two, I've had luck with Diafine, but it's not the best developer for all films per se'. With Foma it might just be the ticket. It does last a long time and it's basically temp insensitive within a range which is nice.
Your post is not very detailed, is there a particular reason you need tonal compression?
Its an ancient thread comefor. But I like that you try to dig into the past instead of creating a new.
60 minutes in 1:100 Rodinal @20C with Foma 100 or 400 can be very high contrast I'd try 45 minutes, I'd not try any agitation either.
You will still get a reasonable toe speed and fog level.
I've not detected streaking...
