HC110 was supposedly developed for photo journalists developing their rolls in hotel rooms around the world. It is a thick syrup and a bottle will develop a lot of film.
A big +1 on the above statements ^ ^.
Rodinal + high speed film is ime a real grain factory, better up with D76/HC110, a litre bottle of HC110 syrup lasts 'forever', just like rodinal.
