    I've used Rodinal 1:50 with both Efke 25 & 100 (4X5 on both & 2X3 for latter) with very good results - some of my best negs so far. Good appearance with enlargement (my max is 16X20 prints).

    I printed that R50 in Rodinal 1:50 this evening. It could have used a bit more contrast but a small boost in dev. time will fix that on my next roll. Tone and grain look very nice. I'm down to my last few rolls and have been avoiding the JandC site (Too many temptations there) but I guess it is about time to put in an order. (Oh my achin' credit card )

    Here's a scan of a print for what it's worth.

    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Nnnnnnice apple from the Big Apple (?). I'm getting quite fixed on those high dilutions of rodinal in certain situations.

    I've like R50 in FG7 too. Nice tone. I'm going to play with it in
    Rodinal for a while though.

    I like the 100 in microdol 1+3 and the 25 in rodinal has been good to me too. I have a post of each in my gallery.

    LOL Jay, Each to their own as they say, some like sugar with their coffee and some like sharp salt and pepper grain with their prints .... mmmm that's me on both counts I've used it with speeds as low as 25 and as high as Tmax P3200 and Delta 3200, I just love the look.

    PMK or Pyrocat

    At the risk of offending those among us who are Rodinalians, I've had good luck with both PMK pyro and Pyrocat-HD.

    Efke 25 is incredible for its sharp grainless prints, which can be enlarged from 35mm shots. Efke 100 has a much longer tonal scale, but it does show some grain. I've settled on 25 for low contrast shots and 100 for larger film sizes or high contrast lighting situations. The PMK does tend to help mask grain and give a smoother rendition of tonality, but shadow values are degraded somewhat due to the general stain.

    The enclosed chrome shot is a 35mm enlargement to 5x7 done with PMK. The print looks better than the scan, but I think you can see how nice tonality and acutance are, even in this harsh contrast situation. This would not be my first choice now, as the 100 would be better with respect to tonality, but Efke films are a great bargain with respect to flexibility and print quality.

    The desert shot is a bit longer in scale and is also a 35mm shot. Sorry about the lousy scan, but you get the idea. Both of these images were done in PMK pyro. I've recently made a change to Pyrocat, so I'm still working on times with these two films, but I like what I'm getting already. Perhaps this weekend I'll have something else to post with pyrocat.

    Would someone tell me if D76 would work with such a film? I´m in Brazil, and my acces to devs is very limited... And I always wanted to buy Efke!
