    For all the endless threads about the different brands of Rodinal, the history, all the formulas and all the heat the discussions sometimes create, does anyone really see a difference in the final print between the brands? Really?
    Differences are for sure noticeable between the old and the new recipe. New Rodinal works less grain accentuating. This can be measured and observed. Also the devtimes vary between the formulations. If adjusted differences can be minimised.

    The former owner of the trademark rights in the USA did not care enough for prolonging his rights. Adox slipped in and finally got the rights granted.
    Not quite. We got his TM canceled because he was not using the brand.

    I like rodinal, I just bought myself another bottle of adonal from B&h for my own darkroom and wrapped up a bottle at work restocked in an order from freestyle. The bottle of adonal that is just finished does have a collection of crystallized chemicals caked on the bottom but the developer still worked the same. I have never used the competing r09 product though. Cool to see the old name back as well!

    Can you say who the retailer is in the US? Let's bring back glass bottles again!

    So now I have to drink 3 bottles of ADOX APH 09 because I told Stone if it wasn't Rodinal I will drink it. That was 2 days ago. Today I opened the first bottle, I am still waiting for the film to dry.

    Do I drink it?

    Pour it down the drain?

    Mail it back to Germany?

    I'm actually pretty upset. I am stuck with ADOX APH 09 garbage now. I was trying to buy Rodinal all along. My last bottles of whatever I had which were labeled Rodinal and worked great to the last drop yesterday!

    What a mess!

    Don't worry Randy. I'm sure all 3 grains in your negative will be just as big with either formula. Or you can use it for its best purpose--rat poison. But best regards Adox. I'm glad you're still out there, profitable and strong.

    Dear Mirko,

    I have a request: Write on the bottle that Stand development is NOT recommended and that it shall not be spread around as a valid and official development (sloppy) technique.

    For some reason, Rodinal has become a synonym of 1:100, 1:200 and Stand development.

    Thanks in advance...

    Amen, friend. If I see one more Rodinal stand development thread on the internet, I'm gonna barf. Tell you what--why doesn't somebody pour a capful in the ocean and everybody can throw their film in and wait 6000 years, and we won't have to hear about it any more till then.
