    The church is saying that it can be perfectly acceptable to develop in less than 10 ml. pr. film. I use 6 ml. + 300 ml. of water (306 ml. 1+50) pr. film (35mm). The result is great. Others are doing 1+100 and use 3 ml. per roll of film with great results.

    I tried a pictorial roll reducing the time to 14 min. Bad idea. The contrastiest scenes looked good in the overexposed bracket but the normal scenes were much too flat. I'm going back to 15 or maybe even 15.5 min and watching the exposed leader on my film for comparative d-max changes.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I have very little experience with the combination, but what I did notice is that the Rodinal is very sensitive to the agitation. I did two rolls in a controlled lighting, both for the same time. First one had agitation every minute, second at 10 and 5 minutes. Seems if you mix it up too much, the highlights block up like crazy, everything else being equal.
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    I agree with you. I am afraid that I have traded my problems with Pan F shadows to problems with the Highlights but I have been very encouraged with my results so far. It is apparent that this will be a very critical process from exposure to dilution to process control.
