    Hans at the start of this thread I posted a link to another thread about Rodinal, we agreed there that it's not the "magic bullet" that people make out, but there again no soup is

    The point is that several developers surpass Rodinal in the traits for which Rodinal is singled out.

    What film do you prefer? Acutol works best with conventional-grain films. FX-39 is best w/Delta films.

    LOL again the end result / look of the picture is what is important to the photographer. No soup is special it's all down to personal taste. A Harley Davidson is a wonderful motorcycle on long straight roads but around here where I live it would be a paperweight. It's all down to what the person using the Harley or developer / film combination likes which is subjective.

    I shot alot of Tri-X and Delta 100, so I guess I have to try a bottle of each.

    If you like Tri-X, try Neopan 400. I develop that in Acutol 1+14 for 8 minutes. You could start with Tri-X at the same time and dilution. Ignore the bottle label developing recommendations. I use a condenser enlarger.

    This thread is starting to sound like a lot of threads that made me leave the Ilford site.
    Opinions expressed are fine but lets drop the "I know everything and this is best for everyone" attitude. It is most un-becoming of APUGers everywhere.
    One person's garbage is another's treasure.
    Now behave yourselves gentlemen, and lets play nicely.

    (Though in all of those particular cases, grain is probably undesireable)
