    Thanks very much. This helps. I was mostly concerned about the amount of Rodinal available per roll of film. E.g. if you'd only done one roll in enough total solution to cover, or alternately, one roll in a two roll tank full of developer, I'd expect different outcomes, with more development where more Rodinal stock per roll is available.

    I'd expect that given the same ratio of active developer to film in your example, the outcomes would be essentially identical.

    I'm not Ole, but the recipe for FX-2 is posted in the APUG Chemical Recipes:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/article.php?a=48

    FX-2 is a Metol/Glycin accutance developer formulated by G. Crawley.

    I have been stand developing 120 roll film (2 rolls at a time) on Hewes reels in stainless steel tanks with excellent results.

    After reading these posts, it occurs to me that somewhere tonight Mortensen's ghost is smiling. Of course, Ansel's ghost is yelling"ANTI-CHRIST"

    Do I hear 1 1/2 to 2 hours?:rolleyes:

    Nah, I don't think Ansel's ghost has problems with this. Adams had a great respect for Mortensen's technical abilities, he just couldn't stand his pictures.

    Hi

    For 1+100 I use 8ml Rodinal + 800ml water, for 1+200 4ml Rodinal + 800ml water. Seems to work well for me. Obviously you don't need quite so much sloshing room for the liquid, and I have read that you need a minimum amount developer in the solution (4ml?). So far with this method I've had no problems.

    For 1+100, most 100-400 films I've tried come out ok in the 18-22 minutes range (Efke 25 works well too). For 1+200, which so far I have only used on sheet film, I have tried 45, 60 (for Efke 25) and 90 minutes. The 90m was for 5x4 classic pan 400. I have yet to scan this, and it's not yet 100% dry, but it looks good, and very even across the sky.

    Thank you all for the feedback. I'll let you know after my first attempt.

    FWIW, I've done stand development with 120, 35 mm, and even 16 mm in tanks. Works fine if you have the right developer. I like highly dilute HC-110 for this, but others like Rodinal and still others find they can use whatever. I don't personally like the very pronounced adjacency effects in smaller formats -- the required enlargement changes an acutance increase into a very unnatural look -- but it seems fine in 120.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
