    Hi

    I'm having some Ilford Delta 100 which I want to develop in Rodinal 1+50 with the times I found on Massive DevChart. Any recommendation on which speed I shoot at. 50, 100 or 125? I will be shooting portraits and landscape with this combo.
    Anyone who has a comment on that combo and recommendations on speed and dev.time.

    Greetings Morten fra Denmark

    I've found that a speed of 50-80 gives the results I want with my system. Delta 100 and Rodinal are actually a nice combination. Just watch out for blown highlights.

    Be carefull not to overdevelope. At the recommended 1+50, 9min, 68F, 4 inversions every minute, I ended up with bad definition, excessive grain and blown highlights. The results hardly enlarged more than 5x without detail falling apart. If I had to do it again I would rather cut times to 7:30.

    I found my lost thread 'bout Delta 100.

    I have now tested the combo at 12-15 minutes in Rodinal 1+50 (68 F, 10 sec. inversion every minute) and find 13:30 minutes doing the job for me when shooting portraits and 14-15 minutes when shooting anything else. What are your comments on my times. Massive Dev Chart says 14:00 minutes.

    That sounds like the time for 1+25, though. But thanks for comment.

    Hi Morten,
    Did you end up shooting iso 50 as silverpixels5 recommended or did you go higher?

    Hi Morten,

    Interesting ... I've just tried Delta 100 rated at 100 in Rodinal 1+50, 20 C, 10 sec twiddling every minute, 14 minutes. The grain is stronger than I'd expect from Delta 100. Highlights are slightly blown and I'll reduce the dev time next time round.

    I shoot in @ 100, but will try the 50 later.

    Yes. The highlights are on the blowing side, but to hit the contrast I like I do it that way. The grain issue...yes, it is a bit grainy but I like that, too.
