    Morten,

    I'm not leaving the church, I'm just gonna visit a different service for a Sunday. Besides, I've got way too many of those little white-and-red bottles around!

    Now I'm relaxing...when you are done fooling around with other developers, come back and confess

    I myself must admit that I have bought D76 for some testing...

    Morten,

    Those young women in your personal gallery are a perfect example of what I'm talking about. They're young, with nice skin; detail is their friend. However, I recently shot some photos of my dear old gray-haired mother, devved in Rodinal. She was none too happy............

    I get your point...

    This is what I say to the girls:

    "I have got this developer that I have pledged allegiance to, and it only works with young and pretty girls...so you HAVE to come into my studio now"

    I kinda miss the old brown glass bottles with the rubber stopper that had to be breached with a hypodermic syringe. ;-)

    Have you tried Ilford's DD-X (liquid concentrate) developer, Doug? I think it provides a nice balance between fine grain, sharpness and smooth tonality. I haven't tried it with APX100, but it's nice with FP4+ and PanF.

    Well, ya know, good old D-23 has so much sulfite in it that it smooths and reduces the grain quite well. It is one of the simplest formulas around.

    Good point I was happy using Ilfords Pan F; FP4+; HP5+ and Delta 3200 souped in DD-X until I found I prefered the look of Rodinal. Again not tried it with any other makes of film.

    Doug just tell her how much the Rodinal has captured her character and wisdom

    Have you gone to unblinkingeye.com to catch the article about adding Ascorbate to Rodinal to reduce grain?
