    Rodinal statistics

    After all these threads on Rodinal, after the establishment of a church in its praise, how many of the apugers use rodinal as their prime developer?

    I'm a lapsed user.

    Excellent with APX100 and APX25, (I have some rolls left), as well as with Tmax100 in all sizes from 35mm to 5"x4"

    Still use Rodinal ocassionally but nowadays tend to prefer Xtol & Pyrocat HD

    Another lapsed user. I`m tending toward D76. I like the smooth grain and if I need a sharper image, I dilute 1;1 or 1:3. Plus I can mix D76 myself for $2 per gallon/4 liters.
    I just found a source for sodium sulfite for $2 per pound . The borax is laundry powder borax and too cheap to cost. I have tons of Hydroquinone given to me. Metol is $.75 if you get 100 gr at a time. Keep it im plastic bags inside the bottle it comes in so you keep air away from it.

    Mix time is 1/2 hr. Works as good as the package mix if not better.

    Like anything else, Rodinal is another tool in the box (OK, it's a rather soggy box). While I like Rodinal for some films in certain situations, I don't have - nor do I want - a "use-it-for-everything-all-the-time" film soup.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    For 90% of the stuff I do I use Rodinal. Delta 100, Pan F+, FP4+, HP5+, Tri-X and Delta 400 are great with Rodinal. When I go ultrafast (3200 and above) I use HC-110 or T-Max, but will soon test D76, XTOL and DDX.

    But as the High Priest I firmly believe in Rodinal!

    For 35mm slow films (namely Pan-F and Efke 25), Rodinal or the J&C R09 is all I use. I've used many different developers, but there's something about slow film and Rodinal that can't be beat: fine grain, sharpness, mackie lines, tonal variations, etc. I only do it for 35mm, but for that, I just don't think anything else compares.

    Don't use it much any more since I shoot mostly 35mm developing the film in an ascorbate based developer.
