I've got some waiting to be done, although I've had excellent results in HC-110 1:51. With Neopan 400, Rodinal 1:25 is a definite winner! Super-fine grain for a 400 speed film, and excellent tones. So I don't see why it shouldn't be the same with Acros.

Just a quick message to say thanks to PC Headland, nze and other APUG contributors to this. Last night I wanted to process a 120 roll of Neopan 100 Acros and wondered whether rodinal would be any use (having run out of the ID-11 I normally use). As the rodinal instructions didn't mention this film so I searched this forum and found the recommendations above of 1+100 at 20 degrees C, agitate 15 secs for each of the first 3 mins, then 1 inversion every 3 mins.
I have to say I was a little skeptical, only adding 3 ml to 600 ml of water, which, to my inexperienced mind, seemed a very tiny amount, and that the rodinal instructions only refer to 1+25 and 1+50 dilutions.
After fix and wash my skepticism was removed, and (whispers quietly) having scanned the negs - sacrilege I know, but I don't have a darkroom (raises voice again) I'm very impressed with the results.
So thank you again APUGers.

That would be 1+200; did you actually use that dilution, or is it a mis-typing?

Thanks for spotting that one Magnus, indeed it was a mistype, I did use 6 ml.
Glad you liked it!
This was the first film I developed, and it took quite a bit of searching for a time for Rodinal and Acros. It was also the first roll of film I ran through the newly acquired Yashica LM. Fortunately, the results were excellent.

Any comments on this film with studio flash lights? I plan to use test this film with both available light and flash, but would like comments on it anyway.
1:50 @20C 6min 45 seconds with 120 ( ACROS ) rated at 32 for N. .11 z1 and 1.25 z8.
Just amazing results. Using Jobo with a 5 minute water pre-wash and water stop bath.
1+100 two hour stand development rated at ISO 200
