    You might have had to pay through the nose for that film, but by the looks of those shots you are certainly getting you dollars worth. If you have a fairly contrasty scene shot with Fuji Acros try stand developing it in you soup for 1 hr. I took a shot of a black steam locomotive with a Rollei and Acros and developed it in Rodinal 1:100 for one hour and was amazed. No grain and sharp as a tack.
    As for the Chinese film? I have tried some ERA film in 4X5 and it really was good stuff, but can't get it anymore.

    There was a LONG thread on the Rodinal formulas. Which one corresponded to the original formula and how it has changed in the years since then. I don't think that there was ever a consensus on these points. Of those responding Ian Grant had the most information.

    I've never tried the PA version, but Rodinal stand develop 1:100 for one hour seems to develop just about everything, including C-41 film with really beautiful tones, it's like the answer to everything

    However most of my B&W work I use it 1:50...

    Wow, that pricing is a Bi*ch

    The cheapest way to buy film here is getting from eBay from USA, paying 50% more as import taxes.

    BTW, all chinese films sucks. I only use TMAX 400 and Acros 100 in 120 and Tri-x, double x and acros in 35mm.

    I think Stone said something about tmax and dd-x, Now I'm souping Tmax in parodinal getting good results.

    LuisJorge:

    Those costs for film are unbelievable, I feel for you. Your image "pre-visualization" skills must be highly developed.....

    BTW, great pics you posted, very nice results!

    Stay safe

    It's simple: Rodinal, 1:100, stand (30s agitation in the beginning only) or semi-stand (30s @ beginning, 30s at half way) for 1hr. Develops pretty much any B&W film properly. Yeah, even pushed/pulled ones :LOL:

    I use it with 4x5 when I want a pleasant amount of small but sharp grain, and when I have multiple rolls of 120 that I can't be bothered to develop each one separately & differently. Never really fails.

    That about sums it up

    And what about that god-awful Rodinal grain?

    Go see for yourself:

    and do that search (Rodinal + stand) on Flickr for other examples
