Thank you. If you want Rodinal made acording to the genuine Agfa recipe from 2005 this is your best/only choice.and I always make sure to buy the ADOX brand when I buy it.
After the stop of production in Vaihingen all other developers sold today come from various factories and are clones which are more or less close but only ours is identical. This is not comunicated well and what´s being written is not totally off because at the time of publication (sometimes more than 3 years back) they really were identical (as long as they came from Vaihingen).
I am not saying the above to badmouth our competitors products. They are also of a high quality and work well. But because of some assumptions made earlier in this thread I want to bring to your attention that there is a substantual difference between what we do and what some of our competitors do. We actually build up a real factory, we internalize knowledge and train people. We become more and more independant from other suppliers day by day, year by year. If something happens to a supplier of ours we can take those recipes (and which we constantly develop further) to another preproducer or make them in house. This built up of a new factory is very costly and redirects the entire income stream from Fotoimpex back into ADOX.
Obviously we would like you (the customer) to prefer our brand over another if you feel this is something which you like to support.
Btw. we plan to reintroduce the brand name Rodinal in the US market.
