The oldest commercial developer still in production, Rodinal (formerly Agfa Rodinal, now sold as Adox Rodinal, Adonal, R09 One Shot) is famous for its contrast. It does not get more Rodinal than works together with former Agfa scientists on all Agfa-replacement you have used Agfa Rodinal* before. Rodinal is a classic developer–some would say the classic developer–that features fine grain and high acutance, perfect for use with Arista, Ilford and Foma .

The results are predictable but vary with different film. Starting inAdox reacquired the trade name and are allowed to use the Rodinal name in the United States.
Pan F 50 is fantastic in this mix, it keeps the highlights from blowing out and doesn’t get any crazy grain, but on the other hand TriX or APX get very intense grain. Rodinal is not a fine-grain developer but gives a characteristically tight grain pattern which some folks like and others rodimal.
