Hey guys, I promised I would report when I had done more rigorous testing and found the right combo.
After being unhappy with "grain edge sharpness" which seems to be rather generalized to what we all look for in terms of image detail, I have finally found a happy medium for at least 1 film, AND I get to keep using Rodinal!
Delta100 @100 in Rodinal 1:50 12 minutes.
I may play around slightly with those variables for optimum exposure/development, but it's an EXCELLENT start!
I was so excited with my results I am of course pre-posting before I have the time to fully share the resultant examples. And they are of course scans so a fair amount of you will find less value in the results and that's ok.
But I felt that it was important to share some kind of conclusion with those of you who followed the previous sharpness thread that went all haywire.
That takes care of the 100 speed, and most of my shooting.
Still working on 400, but not done testing that yet, I've run out of sheets of HP5+ I still have 25 sheets of TMY-2 however I've decided that the only film I can justify shooting at "higher than ilford prices" is the Acros100 that I love so much for nighttime long exposures. Those rotary tests will be done at a later time, if I have no success, I may keep JUST the Acros100 development to hand processing and leave for truly important shots. And if it goes well, well then that's even better!
That's it for now, if I can get done before my GF gets here I can post a few examples.
