Re: Rodinal: Using Andersen's formula.

Yes that would be one option. And completely worry free.
But can I ask you, if you looked up the book with its information?
It would be interesting to know if you had done so.
Just asking?

Than You

Rodinal: Using Andersen's formula.

After hours, days, months, and years of research. I have come to this conclusion. That 80% of what we have been calling or claiming to be Rodinal, is actually "Andersen's" formula of 1892. What we have been calling Rodinal, is a public domain formula that was first publish in France in 1891 and agai...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

I got into the FDA data base and went through their data sheets and information on imported products from Ilford and Afga going back to 1959 for Ilford and 1962 for AFGA/Ansco. I will be going through all of the data that I have. To see what is public and what is not. Looking at the chemical percent...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

I got a copy of the SDS sheet from Digitaltruth. It states that Hydroquinone and Boric Aid are chemicals of the developer Microphen. This is very strange to me, because the US Military would not use Microphen if its make up was similar to, or close to D-76 as well as D-76d. Because they have tons of...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

I am updating my last post. After a mad dash of research, I was told by my source that I could not post the NATO defense article, because it has not been cleared for release. Or permission for its public release has not been cleared yet. It must be cleared through channels. But I continued my resear...

Re: Is my Microphen formula correct?

I swear..., I will never give up on anyone or anything. Through my research looking for information dealing with other subjects. I came across information on Ilford's "Microphen" formula. At first, I did not paid much attention to it, until Ilford's name came across it. Then Kendall, Axford, and oth...

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...
