    Adox CHS 100: id-11 or rodinal?

    Since i don't care about grain size, what developer brings out the best of CHS film?

    thanks

    Well, I've used CHS 100 in Rodinal and it worked well. I've not used ID-11 but I would have thought it would be a good combination - these are both very 'safe' choices as developers.

    Since CHS is an older style emulsion, it should be more responsive to different developer dilutions and types. Maybe minimal agitation in very dilute rodinal might give more pronounced acutance compared to ID-11. I've not really put it to the test, yet.

    I don't know about CHS 100, but I have developed some CHS 25 in D-76 1:1 that was very nice.

    I quite like the tonality of the Adox 100 in Rodinal:

    Adox/Efke 25-50-100 like high acutance developers because they are all single layer type films.

    In order of higher acutance: (Agfa) Rodinal, (Tetenal) Neofin Blue/Blau, Beutler A+B, FX-1.

    With all these type of developers you can have marvellous results. Agfa Rodinal and Tetenal Neofin Blue are commercial available. Beutler and FX-1 you have to make yourself. In fact FX-1 (G. Crawley) is a modified Beutler with a very small addition of Potassium Iodide.

    I really like ATM 49 for CHS, fickle but crispy.
