    Reed's (they are close to me) does have it, but they are double the price on everything they have in the store compared to Looking Glass in Berkeley.

    Reed's are just following the Inverse Square Law of photo retailing ....half the service at twice the price.

    I just tossed a bottle in my cart at Calumet. Price seemed good.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Calbe R09 is a good developer.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Adorama ships the stuff and has reasonable prices as well.

    I just received my order from Calumet and was a bit confused by an extra 12"x12"x10" box. It contained nothing but a 125 ml bottle of Rodinol that I had tossed into the order as an afterthought... and a sh**load of foam peanuts. :?

    Neal, would have to say that is the same box my 4 bottles from Calumet came in, including the load of peanuts. Guess since it still treated as a bio-hazard it must ship separately from anything else - I had ordered some paper as well that came in the same size box, with the same peanuts.

    Maybe they got a good deal on that size box.

    [size=6]Drug stores sell a 10 ml syringe attached to a rubber device for placing into the mouth of a bottle. This is perfect for measuring out small amounts Rodinal.

    To tame Rodinal grain some people add sodium sulfite while others add borax plus sodium ascorbate or sodium isoascorbate (nearly identical when it comes to use as a developing agent).[/size]

    I've never tried the stuff, so I got a small bottle to use tonight. I have some Tri-x 320 and Tmax 100 (4x5) city skyline shots to try... I shoot the Tri at 200 and the TMY at 50, anyone have a dilution/time for trays as a starting point?

    What's the deal with the dilutions anyhoo, "1:50" is that 10 ml of what's in the bottle and 500 ml of water or do you make a stock solution first?

    I've also heard of 1:100 for this stuff, Jesus is it really that concentrated? What effect does more dilution give you?

    I know a lot of cool APUGers use this stuff so I want to give it a good go...

    I doubt that there's a real shortage of places to obtain Rodinal locally in the Bay Area. Back east here in NYC, I get my supplies from both B&H and Adorama. Both stores offer very reasonable prices on darkroom supplies. However, B&H doesn't ship photo chemicals; Adorama does. I'm not up on shipping costs since I usually visit the store, but you can check if you like.

    For processing times you should visit http://www.digitaltruth.com and look up "The Massive Dev Chart." I've gotten arguments about the accuracy of the data posted here, but the time/temp combinations listed there have always gotten me closer than just in the ballpark for my needs. Obviously, you'll need to make adjustments to account for your individual techniques and conditions.
