    Back in the early 70's (1970's that is) I used Rodinal developer and formulas now that I am moving away from digital back to film I am trying to find those tables again. PLUS where can one buy Rodinal today? I live in Stockton Calif and 3 out of 3 shops don't carry it and the younger clerks haven't even heard of it. Now 30 years later what is a guy supposed to do?

    Rodinal is still widely used. I know that B&H sells it. Did you try Samy's?
    As for the tables, did you try www.digitaltruth.com ?

    B&H won't ship it though. I can't remember if Adorama does. Photo Formulary sells the old version of rodinal made from scratch. You can also buy the chemicals and make it yourself from them, or from Artcraft Chemicals.

    If you go into Berkeley or San Francisco, most stores carry it. I think camera arts in Sacramento carries it also.

    Calumet, one of our sponsors, sells it and ships it.

    Adorama ships it. That's where I've always obtained mine. Plenty of development tables out there. Check out the Massive Dev Chart at www.digitaltruth.com.

    Photographer's Formulary sells their own version of it, and as Aggie stated, pretty much all the shops in the bay area stock it.

    The closest SF-area store to you is Reed's in Walnut Creek. Call them though. Looking Glass in Berkeley definitely stocks it, as do Adolph Gasser in SF and Keeble's in Palo Alto.

    Buy a big bottle. It lasts.

    Just got 4 bottles of it from Calumet, good price and shipping was fast. Could not ask for better service. You only have to worry about the shipping $ being high if you want it shipped by air. Ed Buffalo has some data on his site at unblinkingeye.com also, also think that Ilford list it for Ilford films on their site.

    Another APUG, sponsor J and C Photo, carries Calbe R09 developer. I haven't tried it, but have read several posts that indicate that it is an earlier (and some say better) formulation of Rodinal.

    Although I also use HC-110 and WD2D+, I love the simplicity and economy of Rodinal. I like it 1:100 w/Agfa APX 100.
