I tried Rodinal 1:50, 68F, 7.5 minutes, agitate first 30 seconds, then 5 seconds every two minutes EI50. This turned out much better than my first batch which was overdeveloped (8 minutes with more agitation). I am feeling more confident that this film can be used in not only even lighting but also with harsh lighting (dark shadows). The negatives are so sharp. Test shots - the first one is of a banana pepper plant in a navy blue container in very harsh side lighting. The second one is of a grave marker. The usual disclaimers about image quality. A sharp, contrasty film, no doubt, but it can be tamed.
Tonight I will test if they are printable with traditional methods. I bet they are.
Thanks again Field!
