    Great stuff and dirt cheap too!

    I secretly think that I like it better than Delta-100 and FP4+, but don't tell Ilford (half the price, too!)

    FWIW, love it at EI 125, souped in HotRod at 1+50 for 13:30 at 20C.

    Really sharp and contrasty and huge range.

    YMMV,

    Thank you!

    Question did you use a SS tank? One or two rolls? Do you think two in one tank would be alright? 68F?

    Thanks in advance

    I use a Jobo 1540 when doing two rolls at a time. I haven't had a problem yet (please knock on wood).
    When doing one roll, I use a Jobo 1520.

    I would use a minimum of 5ml rodinal for each roll.

    I shoot APX 100 at box speed, develope in 1:50 Rodinal for 13 minutes at 20*C. I use a paterson single roll tank for developing.

    I got very good result with reasonable lighting situation. Never tried at very dim light(Long exposure).

    Hey all,
    Thanks for all the advice. I ended up developing for 13 minutes at 1+50. The results were great. Really nice grain structure and the contrast was just right. I usually use TMAX100 for all my 100 ASA stuff, but I think I may switch over to APX. TMAX tends to be a bit too cold looking for me. The APX had nice smooth gradations in tones, but still extremely sharp and detailed. I can't wait to try it in 120.

    Just because you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

    I'd suggest you agitate just once every minute intead of every 30 secs.
    EDIT: Duh! too late

I'm tempted to try the 1+100 at 22 minutes, but I think I'm going to try the 1+50 first just to get used to Rodinal. I'm going to try the agitation for 30 sec then 2 inversions every 30 suggestion. Keep the suggestions coming though, maybe you can change my mind.

    yes, in fact Rodinal is a very funny developer.

    Be aware not to go under the minimum amount concentrate for about 10 ml/film so 1+100 needs a 1000 ml (1010 ml) developer tank.

    Further the life time (stock) for this liquid developer is very long.

    I have developed with as little as 5ml(1+100 for one reel) of developer without any problems.
    Also used as little as 2ml for stand development(with 1 sheet film), but I wouldn`t try that with a roll...

    I have usd 2 ml for a 36 exp/35mm in 1+200 stand.
    I have to say it worked! Contrast was quite low but negatives were very much printable.

    Robert, I disagree with this figure.
    I use (normally) 7ml/36 exp (1+50) or 4 ml (1+100) with repeatable results.
    I guess the 10ml/roll figure is to make you buy a lot of rodinal.
