    There is a thing about Rodinal that is not always appreciated. It has a limited contrast index with HP5+ and perhaps with FP4+ as well at higher dilutions. I could not get any more than 0.61 out of HP5+. Extending development may build up density, but it may also cause grain clumping which leads to excessive grain. I am not referring to stand development, which if done well is not extended development. The upshot may be a fine looking negative as far as density is concerned, but a grainy one. This is a suggestion, not a pontification. It is something to look out for. If that is what is causing the excess grain on FP4+, reducing development time will help, and wont have much effect on contrast.

    Yes, Jim. I freak out if I can't see grain in the enlarging scope. Grain is our friend when it is sharp, and Rodinal makes sharp grain. (Speaking of MF and LF. In 35mm with Tri-X the grain is just too much.)

    you know what is amazing? That Modafoto hasn't posted, "I told you so"

    Hey Photomc! This is the third posting about your "stand" technique. Could you post one so I can see it--- pretty please?

    Has anyone the curiousity to try the 1:200 dilution listed in some of the data books?

    This is all I have on this laptop. There's more at work. AXP 100 stand processed. It did not downsample well. Sorry.

    Cool! Almost makes me wish I didn't give my bottle away to the kids at Deep Springs college I've got a bottle from 1971 un-opened upstairs. I'll soup something this weekend in the 34 year old stuff and report back.

    Take a look at this link.

    This was done with APX 100 and Rodinal 1+100. Great combo. The scan hardly matches the actual print.

    True! Maybe someone should check if he isn't trapped under something heavy?
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    David - Complimenti! That's a beautiful scale; the print must be quite something. I'm off to try some stand dev't!
