    developing Kentmere 400 in Rodinal

    I have shot a roll of a leftover Kentmere 400 at ISO 200. I want to process it in Rodinal as this is what I have at this moment. What would be a good way to do it? The chart lists K400 at 1/25 for 17 minutes, but does not say anything about 200.

    You know it's going to be super grainy, don't you?

    Scenes of average contrast? Cut the development time by 30% or so. Rodinal 1:50. As Tom said: there will be grain. K400 is pretty grainy anyway.

    Yeah I realise that it will be grainy, but it was the last roll I had and I didnt want to throw it out. Scenes are of average contrast. I Will try your method. Thanks

    Agree, 30% pullback in development time. And yes, here comes the GRAIN.

    Could just about develop normally in Microdol or Perceptol !:3 and have pretty pictures. Then keep the Perceptol for everything from now on.

    I would develop it normal. If the light was of average contrast, you end up making low contrast negatives if you under-develop 30%. Is that what you want?

    All you grain peepers out there - there's more to a film developer than its graininess, haven't you heard?

    I agree with Thomas and what is it with the anti grain movement that seems to have reached APUG. Grain is our friend it gives the photo a human touch and organic feel as opposed to a overly perfect look without soul.

    My answer was based in experience with this film, shooting it at about 200-320 and developing in Rodinal. And if he plans to scan the negs at all he definitely wants to pull back on development time. Just my opinion based on my experience.

    Hi Krisb,
    Could you post some images here, when developed? I would like to see how it looks.
    Grain can be beautiful.
