    A huge THANK YOU to everyone who responded and added their thoughts to this one. Just developed 2 rolls of Ilford Pan F 35mm rated at ISO 50 and for the first time developed in Rodinal diluted at 1+50. Looking at the negatives on a light box and with a lube, the negatives look beautiful so I can't wait to get up to where I hire darkroom facilities to get some prints as film scanning just won't do then justice :-). Kind regards Tony

    Hi Tony,

    I realize I'm a little late with this response. Thought I'd pitch in to recommend Ed Buffaloe's method with this combination:
    Shoot at ISO 50
    Rodinal 1:100 dilution
    12 min @ 68*F
    Agitate 10s every full minute

    Results are great! Although it already seems like you've found your recipe for success.

    Hi Thomas

    Thank you, all contributions are very welcome and the higher dilution information especially useful. I have posted my first Ilford Pan F / Rodinal contribution in my gallery under the title Rodinal Rose. The scan doesn't really do it justice, so more exploring / experimenting is going to follow very quickly. I really love this combination and it has finally given me the look I wanted :-)

    Kind regards Tony

    _Very_ nice, Tony.
    The tones even look great in the scan. The print must be gorgeous.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Neil, Thank you for your kind words. The print has come out really rich and with a beautiful texture, in fact I think it's one of the best prints I have every managed. It's also come at just the right time as a local card company which produces B&W prints wants me to submit samples of my work, so this will be one of them.

    Kind regards Tony

    That is the main thing. I had been playing about with Rodinal at 1:100 with minimal agitation and gave FP4 something like 20 minutes with 5 secs agitation every 3 minutes ! Mostly floral pics and got nice negs although I have not printed any yet. Oh, I forgot to say that the developer was a few years old and the film well out of date !

    Thanks Roy, maybe I should get around to playing with some of my outdated rolls soon. I'm sure my wife would appreciate the space in the fridge with summer coming lol Your times for FP4+ will also be very useful as well ;-)

    Add me to the list of Pan F+ in Rodinal users. 1:50 for 9 minutes at 72F works for me.

    There have been threads in recent months about members using Pyrocat with
    "partial stand" and "minimal" development agitation also about how long Rodinal lasts, you may have read them. I just thought that I would experiment a bit with a film and a developer that I was considering throwing away because of their age. Use a 120 film if you have one because it does not take so long to expose it. I usually find that when I am limited with film for some reason, it goes quickly and when I want to run it through quickly, I cannot find the subjects !

    Bob - Welcome on-board it sounds like we will have enough for a Rodinal Forum at this rate (I jest - honest :-))

    Roy - Yep I know what you mean about subjects and of course here in the UK we have the added problem that the weather also changes as soon as we stock up on film. We either lose the light or the fluffy clouds all disappear from the sky all at the same time. I've recently been given a load of out of date 120 film, so now all I need is a nice cheap Russian camera to play with them. 35mm I seem to have lots of my own but strangely no Pan F+ so it looks like Jessops here I come :-)
