Hoping to return to the forum.

Hello everyone: KennyE here. I have not been active on the forum or any forum for that matter. I have not gotten over the lost of 85% of all of my photo equipment, lab, chemicals, documents, books, vintage cameras, and host of other thousands and thousands of items, that I lost in Texas to the hurri...

Re: Rodinal digitaltruth´s formula not working !? HELP

Jon everything in the Rodinal formula for mixing the chemicals is correct. It is the amount of the chemicals being used that are incorrect. p-Aminophenol Hydrochloride 20g; should be 7-10 grams for 500ml-1000ml solutions Potassium Metabisulfite 60g; should be 90-100 grams for 500ml-1000ml Sodium Hyd...

Re: Rodinal digitaltruth´s formula not working !? HELP

Water 350ml Para-Amin 7.00 gms Sodium Sulfite A 90-100.00 gms Sodium Carbonate 4.00 gms Sodium Hydroixde 10.00 gms Use 1 liter boiled water, cooled to 1...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

It is nice to hear about your vacation. I do hope it all went well Jim. OK, so 1:25 seems to be a better fit, great. 5X7 is a good size print for rodinal type developers, pushing it pass 8X10, will be asking for the grain to show up. I have been busy with family and building a 4X5 view, with all the...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Hello everyone, I was just cruising by when I saw the new post. I am glad you tried the formula. You will need more time with the soup, to get it to do what you want it to. So do not give up on it. As far as XR-1 is concerned, never used it. Unblinking Eye has some information on it. But I use Techn...

Re: Moersch Photochemie

Yes, I agree with Fotohuis: Finol has little advantage over Pyrocat HD(C). I have ask those persons that stated that they have used Finol and have found it to be a great developer, have also told me that they had not used Pyrocat HD(C) prior to using Finol. So I question its overall performance. I a...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Yes, I use that as well. But I use 150 watt bulbs with white panels for reflection and bounce. In 1956, when I was in middle school, we had our pictures taken. And they use the first studio flash system that I had ever seen. And it just stayed with me. I had always wanted one, yet I could not afford...

So have not been doing any thing but using my stock formulas and developing expose film for testing my new lighting system that I am developing, u...

Re: Anyone tried the new 'Promicrol'?

Gerhard: Would you be able to post that information on the manufacture of Glycin. I am very interested in doing it. Since there is only one source for it in the United States that I am aware of, it would be nice to know that I myself could produce it. I started to research the information that you p...

I have not forgotten you guys, it is just that I am working on my new formula, and it is just taking longer than I thought.


Thank You
