    Hans - FP3 + HP4??????? Come on old chap try to stay up with the times how many changes to formulations have taken place since then? You really must try to get out more, we've been sent objects to Mars, the PC is now in almost every home, and I hate to mention it but digital camera technology is even getting into the shops

    can you please give the reference to this (volume (year/month) and pages) please?

    This should be from the late 70's early 80's since it mentions lots of long gone films.

    From what I read there Rodinal doesn;t rate that badly, and yes it is primitive, simple and effective.... over 100 years old and countign

    But it's handy to see films like ADOX (efke) being listed there. I doubt that the formulation has changed at all (I think they even mention it being the exact same). Also handy to see Diafine there, along side Neofin & Rodinal... Should make more than a few APUGers happy.

    I'm one of them... Thanks Hans

    The value of the survey is hardly diminished. The films don't matter so much as the developers, almost all of which are current. This issue is 1/1968. The films haven't changed all that much in any event.

    Come on Hans, your telling me that the film producers spend millions of pounds / dollars for the product to stay the same. If things don't change why do we have different times for many of the newer versions of films and not just use the old ones.

    My point on the other thread remain the same, those of us that use Rodinal and love it, do so because it gives us the results we want. All the publications every published can be quoted but in the end it's down to personal preference and just because some people like yourself don't like it ..... it doesn't make it the worst soup ever brewed.

    The point is that it does not rate near the top in any category.....

    I didn't say the films have not changed. Some have, some have not. Plus-X and Tri-X are essentially unchanged, as is (in all likelihood) the Adox/EFKE films. But the most useful aspect of the survey for us today is in the developers used here, which are completely unchanged so far as I know. Thus, we can see how Rodinal works with high speed films (poorly).

    My point? That Rodinal's reputation is not matched by its actual performance...
