    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)

    If those are your only choices, then definitly Rodinal.

    Pyrocat-HD is excellent for stand develpment, as well as normal developing. My question to you is why stand development.

    Hello Rick,

    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.

    recommended steps:

    1) get diafine 2) shoot at whatever EI you like

    Diafine > rodinal

    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...
