    Yes I used a few rolls of APX100 in R.S. and found it good. Nice tones and fine grain.

    From what I can remember, it was definitely smoother than ordinary Rodinal which I must say is still my favorite developer for 120 film.

    I use Rodinal Special as my standard developer for most 400-1600 ISO films, here is an image APX 400 RS at 1:30 increasing dev times by 50%


    It seems pretty sharp, nice tonal range with a little more grain than say ID11/D76

    Rodinal Special IS NOT like D76 or Xtol. Is SO MUCH BETTER

    Absolutely NOT correct. I started using Studional in '94 for my Agfapan films, and the smooth tonality and finer grain is amazing. I've got 1½ bottles left of it. While not the same as Rodinal, if these were the only 2 developers on the planet, they're all you'd need.

    In '94 It became my standard developer for all things Agfapan.

    Thanks again for your input. Sounds like a great developer.

    Agfa Studional - not a MAGIC BULLET - just another competent PQ developer.

    I'll take a competent PQ developer over some of the other developers I've seen out there. Are there any major caveats to using Studional?
