    In the Church of Rodinal it's not just the sacrament but the chalice, too, that counts.

I've since moved up and moved on to larger formats... at least for now. I wouldn't mind passing it along if the price was tempting and I could ship it without problems within the US.
    It's hit and miss. No completed listings for the "real stuff" on ebay right now. I've seen it sell for as high as $40 for a 500ml bottle or as little as $15-20. My most success buying it has come from when it's part of a "clear the darkroom package of junk" that gets posted but the Rodinal is not listed but can be seen in the box or the photos. Got a real old glass bottle of the stuff that I think is from the 60's. Worked perfectly! The auction went for $5 plus $5 shipping and I got a bunch clips, reels, bulk load cassettes, spotting brushes and inks, etc.

    Thanks. You know I saw that thread after doing a quick search on APUG, but I got lost in the technical minutia of the discussion that followed. I am going to have a look at Ancell, when I get home tonight as well as a couple of other sources. I have also copied down one of Patrick Gainer's excellent suggestions. I am planning some stand-development experiments with 35mm and 120 film. 500 ml of this stuff will go a long way mixed 1:100.

    According to FedEx, my 500mL bottle of Compard 09 from Freestyle will be here in three days. Can't wait to try it out. I've used D-76 in the past, and I have a bottle of Ilfosol 3 Im planning on using day after tomorrow. I'm really waiting to see the difference.

    Wow, that's getting up there. I still have 8 out of the 10 500ml bottles I got from Freestyle back in early 06. It was $11.99 back then, Adonal, which they are out of is only $2 more, so not too bad all in all. Maybe I will buy another 10 and be good for the rest of my career, LOL!
