    1:80 for enlargements. I never knew rodinal was a paper developer too and at such high dilution too.

    Everyone knows that if you put it in glass bottles and put a very old looking label on it then it will not only work better overall but suddenly acquire enhanced edge effects in rotary processing!

    Good one. Just my opinion but if you are decanting Rodinal into glass to make it last longer you aren't developing enough film and if you need an old-timey label you may be paying attention to the wrong things, but hey, everyone can enjoy their hobby their own way.

    On the other hand, if I'm already going to be using Rodinal for all of my large format negatives anyway (and I am), then if given a choice of containers to purchase, I'd pick the old-timey square-ish brown glass bottle with faux antique label every time.

    Well I probably would too (though I never got along with Rodinal but will try it again) because they are cool, but not cool enough fit me to waste my time trying to duplicate.

    I've never been keen on the commemorative tin but I'm somewhat surprised that Kodak and Ilford haven't done up some film in throwback packaging.

    I see another thread starting with photos of old films and developers.

    Haha! I always move it to a new bottle because the child proof lid lock fails to function after a while, that's the main reason, I do this with ilford chems too.

    The nifty antique bottle is just cause it makes the process more fun. Makes me feel like I'm "back in the day" after all part of why we do this is the joy of the process.
