    I think that rodinal can do a better job than expected with long soup time and minimal agitation. I was going to try that this weekend - sorry I have no results yet to help you out.

    My tests with TXT at 1600, 3200 and 6400 between Microphen and Rodinal indicate that I can get roughly the same results with the two, with proper technique.

    Hey I'd be interested in those times for 400TX + HC-110. Last time I tried 36mins at dilution H (1/2 of dilution B) and I got rather thin negs. PM me if we're hijacking the thread...

    Not to be a spoil sport but as long as you are taking a flashlight along to be able to set your camera why not point it at the model?

    Good Idea...

    Right now I am even thinking of bringing one of my strobes...then I can shoot ISO 400 instead...

    Hi Morten,

    Whilst I've a feeling we've spoken about this before (I'm a little minus on sleep at the moment and not tracking 100%) it's probably worth mentioning again:

    When using Delta 3200 with DD-X, develop for the recommended time for the next speed up to avoid anorexic negs. E.g. shoot at 3200 ISO, dev for 6400 ISO.

    Whilst I haven't pushed the film myself, I've seen some wonderful shots taken on Delta 3200 at 25,000 ISO in a Japanese baths in B&W (US version) a few years ago. I think B&WP UK also featured the work more recently but couldn't swear to it (Ailsa?!). Unfortunately I can't remember the photographer and I'm not sure the dev was stated. Great work though.

    (Did any of the above make any sense at all?!)

    All the best,

    Frank

    3200: 20 min.
    6400: 30 min.
    12500: 45 min.

    HC-110, Dil. A:
    3200: 13 min.
    6400: 20 min.
    12500: 30 min.

    Greetings Morten
    FWIW, I've found that something between 1.35 and 1.4 is the increase factor for a one stop push. You're using 1.5; that's pretty steep.

    For example if your 3200 time is 20 minutes say, (using 1.4x), then a 6400 would be 20x1.4=28, and a 6400 would be 28x1.4=39.2 minutes.

    I would really avoid the Rodinal. The loss in film speed is substantial, and as much as I'm going through a grain-is-good phase (see my last gallery submission), I think Delta 12500 in Rodinal isn't going to look terribly good.
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    AVOID??

    I'm in shock!
    Morten: next time, don't ask in here - ask me ;-)

    I've "just" found that delta 3200 at 12500 developed in RODINAL!! 1:25 at about 18-20 min (ca24 degrees c) works like a charm!!
    NEVER seen such beautiful and crisp grains!!

    stick to your religion - don't change..

    att. a sample - allthough grains are hard to scan proberly....

    Morten, Can you get X-tol where you are? According to the MDC, X-Tol stock will do your Delta 3200 at an EI of 6400 in 12.5 min.

    Sorry, that should be an EI of 12,500 in 12.5 min and 6400 in 10 min.

    Thanks. I was using the multiplication factors of MDC, but will consider yours.
    I will be using HC-110 as I couldn't get hold of either DD-X, D76 or XTOL. I could only get Rodinal, HC-110 and some Tetenal stuff (I think it was Ultrafin). I got the two first already and don't like ultrafin that much.

    Ok...now I am stuck...I have used Rodinal with Delta 3200 and found it to be weak and powerless a high speeds. Delta 3200 in 1+25 for 11 minutes (@3200 and 20 C) was very weak. But 18-20 mins @ 24 degrees C...I might consider it.
    I will wait for a few days to process this film to see if other opinions are coming along the way.
