    Source for Rodinal?

    What are folks doing these days to find Rodinal? Are we strictly in "Make Your Own" land?

    Or you can watch eBay and over pay for the original stuff! Kidding aside, after Agfa shut down the original Rodinal that would pop up was going for serious coin. Then it settled back some when stuff like RO9 came out but now seems to be going up again. Go figure.

    Funny. I just got off the phone with Freestyle and, oddly, their Adolux and Fomadon versions of this developer are out of stock. Compard 09 seems to be in stock though, so we will see how it goes. I did a search on APUG and came up with some Patrick Gainer recipes; a little something to keep in the back pocket if things get tight. - Ben

    Edit: Rich - great stuff on your website! I lived in the Bay Area in the 1990's and was never able to really capture my sense of the light there.

    Thanks Ben.

    I owe it all to Rodinal, I mean Adonal, I mean R09, or whatever...... :-)

    What's the going rate for the real deal? I've got a few 500ml plastic bottles of Rodinal and a few 17.5m 35mm rolls of APX25 I had set aside for a special day. That day still hasn't come yet. 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.
