Of course

It's the simplicity of Rodinal combined with the quality of the negatives produced that lead people like Patrick in search of similar developers using different developing agents.

But in a 100+ years it's been copied by many other companies, including Ilford & Kodak but no-one has yet come up with a simple alternative using other developing agents, that keeps well as a single solution concentrate.

This is why Rodinal is so remarkable.
