    Delta 100 - Rodinal or HC-110?

    Yesterday I shot my first roll of Delta 100. I have Rodinal and HC-110 developers, which would you recommend? Most shots are of my nephews, mostly outdoors in the sun or shade.

    I am in the same boat, but I think I'm going to try Xtol first. I have both HC110 and Rodinal but from what I read and the result of others, it appears Xtol might be my best bet. After that I will try PrypCat HD. The problem with using HC110 and Rodinal from what I understand is that it's really hard to control the highlights. I could be wrong, I often am.

    Good luck.

    I've used Delta 100 in XTOL 1:1 with 120 film and it produces pleasing results (to my eye). Processing is in small tanks with slightly reduced agitation frequency (10 sec every three minutes) and a corresponding increase in total development time (12-14 minutes at 68F). Grain with this combination is very fine and shadow detail, assuming adequate exposure, is well maintained. Hope this helps,
    Daniel

    I use Delta 100 and Rodinal as my main combo when shooting portraits, and will recommend it ANYTIME! I shoot it @100 and develop for 13-15 minutes in Rodinal 1+50 (68 f). The longer you develop the more contrast you get. Go for 14 minutes and you are pretty sure you can print it nicely.
    HC-110 will do good, too. But you have got to try Delta 100/Rodinal 1+50!

    Greetings Morten

    If I had to pick 1 of the 2 it would be rodinal. But XTOL is my flavor for Delta 100. Have tested all 3 and XTOL does great for the subtle value changes and polished grain.
    Stop trying to get into my mind, There is nothing there!

    Hey Mindy!
    If you use the Rodinal, remember that "agitation" is an overstatement....more like "gentle swirling" is the key. I like using Rodinal...but I'm an acolyte

    For my last roll of Delta 100 I used HC-110 diluted 1+49 from syrup, 5.75 min at 23C. Came out great.
