    Does anyone know the recommended development time/dilution/temperature for
    Fuji Acros 100 rated at ISO 100 and developed in Agfa Rodinal?

    Thanks

    Digitaltruth offers only for 50 and 80 ASA ...
    I've developed, experimentally, my first roll of Acros (35 mm) rated
    at 100 in D23 1+1, 12 minutes. The negative looks very nice, invisible
    grain, good detail in shadows. Most pictures were taken in harsh
    sunlight, but the contrast is not overly raised. Still need to see
    what it looks like enlarged ...

  5. Why don't you recommend this combo, Mike? I thought an acutance
    developer would be good to use with a fine-grained film.

    Rodinal and Acros is okay with me. Try 1:100, 12 minutes at 70F and adjust
    from there to your likings. Some people just don't like Rodinal, and I
    suspect MS is one of those.

  7. Well, Rodinal is really not exactly an acutance developer. I can
    e-mail you pdf's of the results of a test of films and developers run
    by Leica Fotografie in 1968. Rodinal got low marks on resolution and
    speed.

    I would strongly suggest you explore either Paterson FX-39 or Paterson
    Acutol.

    These curves reveal the differences in speeds, but not in graininess.
