Remembering a Kodak Christmas

When I was a child, I would always see ads for Kodak products around the Christmas holidays. Disneyland and Kodak, was a theme that I will never forget, as well as all the Christmas Specials that we would view and watch on television, sponsored by Kodak. And I could not wait to see the new Christmas...

Re: Rodinal, its true story and formula.

Keith, hello and how are you? After re-reading my post, I discovered where I had made it confusing to understand my actions and ideas. What I did was to take 1 oz. of my home brewed Rodinal and diluted it 1:80, and to it, I added the concentrated amounts of Pyro and Borax. What I had was an A, B, C ...

Re: Rodinal, its true story and formula.

Ornello is correct, that people think that Rodinal is better than it exactly is. That is because it is. I was doing some testing of a few old developers in my lab, that I was thinking about trashing. So I pulled out my listing on these samples and began to look at them closely. Pyro and Pyrocat will...

Re: Playing around with a Microdol- X Substitute

For along time now; since, Ian made the statement that Microdol-X was a super or an extra fine grain developer, I have check with other sources and even Kodak themselves to see if they felt that Microdol-X was in the category stated by Ian, and they stated themselves that Microdol-X was and is a fin...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

No not yet, thou I have seen and have spoken to those that do develop that way. They use Rodinal, basically the same thing I suppose. There are some good examples posted on Flickr. What gets me to worry about Flickr is that some photos state that they use Microdol-X to develop a negative, and I see ...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Its hard to say Jim, because people behave differently in the care of their equipment. I would say 4 months to be on the safe side of things. But there are those persons like yourself, who take care of their items; so it may last longer. I am still using the batch I made up in May of this year, so i...

Re: How to properly make PaRodinal

Jim: If you use 30 tablets, you will obtain approx: 14 grams of Acetaminophen, plus the filler. There is nothing wrong with using more Aceteminophen. I use 15 tablets, giving approx: 8 grams of Acetaminophen. But I also do something else to the Acetaminophen, I add 10ml of Muriatic Acid. And obtain ...

Re: Getting Closer to a Panthermic 777 developer

What you stated is true, yet the Watkins factors for developing agents is all over the place, depending on which book and information you chose to believe or embrace. If you go by the Watkins factor in TM11-662, that was used by the US Military in the 1930's to the 1950's, then you have one standard...

Re: Getting Closer to a Panthermic 777 developer

They have adopted Germaine Morris formula as Harvey 777. The Germaine formula is being sold by Photographer Formu...

Getting Closer to a Panthermic 777 developer

I have been working with this formula for years now, and I called DuPont last week, and got no where with one of its personnel. So I started going through all of my materials on Defender, DuPont, and Harvey's 777 film developer products. Then I came across the two product reviews on Panthermic 777. ...

Re: Playing around with a Microdol- X Substitute

Keith, that is a good formula, and I think that we are getting closer to the true Microdol-X formula. I say that because I seen a similar formula in patent, and I will look for it this weekend. 4-chlororesorcinol, is used in hair dye, as a coupler. It is toxic to the skin in high dose, any thing gre...

Re: Playing around with a Microdol- X Substitute

Keith Microdol-X was a general purpose go to fine grain developer that replaced DK-20 in that role. It can be used for roll and sheet film. Many photographers, started using it instead of DK-50 or DK-60, as their general purpose developer. I do not think that Microdol-X was considered a "super fine ...
