    I forgot to answer your second question. I think it is easier to keep on hand a supply of the ascorbic acid-borax solution. You can use it or not as the spirit moves when you have time for play. When I was learning to play the oboe, I read that a famous oboist said "If you want to learn to play the oboe, you must play with the oboe." The word "serendipity" comes to mind.

    Does the ascorbic acid-borax solution increase/decrease the film speed versus just plain rodinal?

    I usually bracket my exposures +and- 1 stop when I am doing pictorial tests. I don't see any difference except density between box speed and 1 stop over. 1 stop under begins to lose shadow contrast in both plain and perverted Rodinal. This change in curve shape makes it more difficult to get a good print unless that is what you seek. More development will make ends meet so to speak, but the inbetween may not suit. These same comments apply to most developers I have tried.



    Of course, a lot depends on how you use film speed to calculate exposure from your meter readings.

    I've been using Gainers' Rodinal variant and referring to it a G-Rodinal. But I think I much prefer Perverted Rodinal better.
