    Yep, as the others said, they are available. Also, if you do a search here on whatever film & rodinal, you will probably find some mention in a thread or three!

    If you can't find anything about a particular film, just ask! There are many of us RAs (Rodinal Acolytes) just waiting to answer questions & help others learn the Way!

    I recently purchased Agfa Rodinal concentrate in the bottle. It was easier to use than the powdered developers, which has to be mixed to a stock solution and then diluted again for your working solution. The negatives turned out great; probably the best I've developed in my short alchemist career. It probably helped that I was developing Agfa film...but we'll see how it works on Ilfsord soon enough. I'm hoping the prints turn out as well.

    There are lots of folks who just despise HP-5 in Rodinal. I like what I see when I use that combo, but I haven't done it a lot.

    On the other hand, Ilford's FP-4 and Pan-F in the old magic elixer are pretty much universally accepted.

    Fine Grain Developer

    I've never used it myself, but my local pro lab uses Kodak Xtol developer for their b&w dip and dunk system. It produces very nice negatives where a 16"square print from a 6x6 neg using Agfa APX400 has very little visible grain.

    I still think Rodinal has a sharper look to it, and prefer it unless really large enlargements are called for.
    Some people don't recommend Rodinal with higher speed emulsions, but I love it with Tri-X and APX400.

    I guess that's the way for most of us.
    I started using Metinol and Rodinal from AGFA, then moved to D76 for years (under kodak or clone names), experimenting here and there, specially with home-brews.
    When I moved to the US in 99, I started using FG-7, Acufine, Ilfosol-S and DDX, then got back with Rodinal.

    I finally settled with Rodinal and DDX (now Clayton F76+)
    Though I love to experiment with things like Caffenol, Rodinal+VitC, etc.

    Right now I have 3 developers on my shelf - Rodinal is definitely the mainstay; I keep a bottle of DDX handy mostly for Delta3200, but sometimes I use it on HP5 or APX400 depending on what I'm looking for; and I'm just starting to experiment with some PMK. I may still have some ID-11 sitting around, but it's been so long since I used any that it's probably time to dump it.
