    If the roll in the water stop bath is good, well then... I guess that's the answer!

    This was the last roll of a few I bought about a year ago, the others were fine although used much earlier. Truthfully I'm not excited by these tab grain films, they're sharp yet they dont look sharp. I just wonder if this film had an accidental exposure to tropical heat and humidity

    Just another voice crying out in echo:

    Several rolls of Delta 100 135-36 in Rodinal at 1:25 for 9 minutes with Ilfostop and Ilford Rapid Fixer - No nasties to report.

    Looks like everything has been covered and again lots of Rodinal use (1+100 to 1+25) on several types of films without any problems. I only use water as a stop-bath though rather than lfostop.

    Have you considered the Rodinal Moth? Nasty little beasties and the only thing Morten is scared of

    Aha! So that's why he wears that latex suit.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Any chance of some remnants of powder developer getting on the film while loading in the darkroom?

    Have you looked at the spots under high magnification, such as a microscope? A student binocular dissecting microscope with above and below illumination might reveal whether the spots are bits of emulsion damage, developed silver, some additional meterial stuck on the surface etc.

    It was about a year ago when many people using Ilford films reported this problem. I had one roll with these small black specks myself. At the time I was hanging around the Ilford forums (with several other suscribers and members currently hanging here). Ilford investigated and said it was a manufactor problem that was corrected, and issued a recall at the time. Only certian batches were affected and if I remember correctly, it was a small number.
    I use Ilford HC and Rodinal and have always used Ilford stopbath. With the exception of the one roll mentioned above, I've never had a problem with film.
    Coffee shakes, poor judgement and lack of focus :o is another matter...

    I conclude that the Rodinal Moth hatches in acetic acid
