    Hi,

    In Rodinal I would go with 1+25 if you push it to get an acceptable dev time. I haven't done it as APX400 is not my film...I don't get along with very well.

    Expect LOTS of grain!

    Nicol, thanks for the information.

    Morten, thanks for the suggestion. The jury is still out on what I'll be cooking it in but I'll post comments here.

    Cheers

    In you soup it in Rodinal expect much contrast and grain. I love that effect, but if you want a smoother neg use XTOL.
    APX films and Rodinal results in contrast and vivid grain.
