    Reading about stand development here , I decided I`d give it a shot.
    2ml Rodinal in 400ml of 68F water, agitation for the first minute, and I plan to let it stand for two hours(25 minutes so far ) :smile:

    Is two hours to little? Too much? Just right? :smile:

    Anyone tried this combination?

    Hard to say, not knowing. I think PanF for two hours is too much but 90 minutes is just about right. Being a faster emulsion, hence normally longer dev times, maybe 2 hours is correct for Fuji400. Only you will be able to tell from your tests. Did you bracket?

    I didn`t bracket as I decided to try stand development after I exposed the film.... The results was a thin negative, and from what I see I should have exposed the film at EI 200. The film was also a bit unevenly developed, so I `ll try again tonight with APX 100 @64, and agitate a couple times every 30 minutes...

    1+200 Rodinal works very well, didi you presoak?
    That has helped me avoid uneven development
