    Rollei IR 400 in Rodinal ?

    Greetings fellow apugers!

    I just got back from a hiking trip with my RB67 (up a mountain) and I shot a roll of Rollei IR 400 with an R72 filter. After reading all of the differing opinions on the net I settled on metering at ISO 12 and bracketing. I will be souping this roll in Rodinal and I was wondering if any of you had any recommendations for dilution and developing times. The massive developing chart gives me 1:25 for 7.5 min at 20 degrees C. The iso on the chart is 400 (10-25) and the parentheses are for filtered shooting. I will probably go with that dilution/time unless any of you can recommend anything better.

    Sounds good to me. Show us your pix when you are done.

    Personally, I wouldn't use rodinal; this film is grainy to begin with and rodinal will not be kind to it. But yes, do share your results.

    This was shot on Rollei IR 400 with an R72, metered to EI 12, and developed in HC110 dil B:

    Rollei IR 400 is not grainy in my book. Not at all! I would purposefully use Rodinal on it just to get sharper grain. Efke IR 820C, on the other hand, is quite grainy.

    The film is drying now, and the negatives look good. I only managed to get 2 shots due to bracketing (first time using this film), but looking at the negatives they look good. I was not really worried about grain considering this is 120 film, and from eyeballing the negative the grain looks pretty small. I will post the results as soon as this film dries and I can get it scanned.

    Who ever took the included photo is to be congratulated! That is an excellent IR photo. As an IR worker. getting one like that is quite an accomplishment indeed. I have tried it for years and never had one that good. Good work!

    I'm assuming you are referring to my photo above. If so, thank you.

    You probably don't want to hear that that was from my very first experiment with IR sensitive film

    I can only attribute this to three things:

    1) Blind beginner's luck!;
    2) All sorts of great information and references found by me through the assistance of many here on APUG; and
    3) The inherent suitability of Mamiya TLRs for this sort of work.

    Here is a more recent experiment - this time using the Ilford SFX near infrared film:

    Ok here are the scans, straight from the scanner aside from rotating them.








    I would have liked more separation between the rocks and the trees, but overall I am pleased.
