world famous rodinal developer is back!!


AT LONG LAST, the photographers dream is here!
it’s RODINAL, perhaps one of the most versatile developers ever made!
Virtually indestructible, it can survive for years in a half used bottle and still be used to develop films — absolutely amazing!!
ONE BOTTLE WILL LAST YOU AGES!
When used at low dilutions, which is the best method, basically what happens is that the highlights develop first and then the shadows slowly develop detail over the remainder of the time the film stays in the solution.
This means that in high contrast scenes this form of development is useful for capturing detail that might otherwise be lost using conventional development methods. Additionally, the grain tends to be lower since there is less agitation.
Rodinal is the oldest continuously produced developer in the world. Dr. Momme Andresen invented the product in 1891.
It was one of the first liquid film developers and became immensely popular.
It’s fast working, less temperature dependent and developing power remains strong at low dilutions.
Rodinal is virtually the “swiss army knife” of black and white film developers!
Known for its shelf life, high acutance (sharpness), gradation, reliability and low cost per roll. Rodinal’s formula contains no silver solvent.
The film after development remains in its natural state. Lack of softening by a silver solvent leaves the film grains with a sharp edge. Read here what a professional says:

“I even improperly put the cap on the bottle and it sat exposed for two months. The stuff was a nasty blackish brown when it should have been a sweet purple/pink.It still worked like a charm!

Rodinal can be diluted 1:25, 1:50, 1:100 and even 1:200.

Here’s how it goes. I use the 1:100 ratio; that is 5 ml solution for 500 ml of water for one roll.
At this weak dilution rate the development is very even, slow and steady. No matter what type of film or water temperature, I develop my films for 10 minutes.

Its a magical system that gives excellent results time and time again.”
