    Champion Suprol

    Hi All, first post!!
    I've been experimenting with stand development in Rodinal 1+100, Legacy Pro 100, and my time is 1 hour 30 minutes, which gives me a nice, fully tonal print on grade 2.
    However, I tried stand dev with Suprol 1+100 for 1 hour 10 minutes, 30 sec initial agitation, and 6 inversions half way through, and the negs look lovely!!
    I'll post some images soon.
    We changed to Suprol at the college I used to work at in the 90s, as we had problems with mealy grain with ID11, and it gives a lovely negative
    Suprol is cheap, long lasting and doubles as a paper dev.
    One question: I'm about to buy some film for my Rolleiflex, and I've narrowed it down to either Efke 25, or Rollei Pan 25, any advice?
    Thanks,
    Buggleskelly

    I've used dilute Suprol commercially back in the 70's/80's for films and it's superb, very fine grained great tonal range, but a slight loss in film speed. I used to buy it in 25 litre drums

    EFKE 25 is really nice film I've been using it since the 1970's
