    Women are bidding these up....

    they have discovered that a little rodinal behind the ears,
    an evening gown,
    and a candle or two, has a more profound effect on certain males,
    yes even more so than " the smell of fixer in the morning"

    The seller is running an auction, not a fixed price sale, and has multiple bids on all five bottles. The number won't drop from five, because people can still bid. And the price may go higher.

    I still think some of the bidders don't realize they're bidding a "per bottle" amount.

    Just wait until Clayton Chemical decides that they want to buy the rights from Agfa and start making it.

    I called Freestyle and asked about the chance of them getting any more, just to lay it to rest. They say they're working on a deal that probably won't pan out, but that they're also working on the idea of having a clone made for them. Aristadinal?

    I guess "necessity" really is "the mother of invention"

    I saw this auction too. I was frantic to get some original Agfa Rodinal before it disappeared completely, so naturally I checked eBay. I would sure love to get some, albeit not at such exorbitant prices!

    So I did some research, figuring that availability of remaining stock would be greater in Europe then in the US, seeing as production is more or less "local" out there. I hit google pretty hard, sent out about a dozen emails, and low-and-behold, 2 days later, I've got an order on it's way for (12) 500ml bottles! woohoo!

    I've also asked the seller to reserve an additional 12 bottles, pending the incident-free arrival of the current order - though I've yet to get confirmation on that reservation. All in all, I paid about US $14.00 p/bottle - that puts the price squarely at 1.5x what I would've paid at B&H, but a far cry from the gouging that's obviously rampant.

    I got the impression that this supplier still has some stock left over, though I dont' know quite how much. I'll be asking though, and if there is more Rodi to be had, I'll be glad to post the source.

    What gouging? The seller runs an auction, people bid what they're willing to pay. If this were food or heating oil or some other necessity in short supply, it would be different, but this product even has substitutes readily available.

    Hope the folks at Photographers' Formulary see this. It might give them a little more incentive to hurry up and get their Rodinal clone out.
