Subject: [Leica] IMG Photo-a-Month July in rodinol

I managed two rolls for July.  With all this discussion about Rodinol I 
decided to break out my long neglected bottle and see how it stacks up 
against the usual dilution of HC110 I use, which is about 1:42 for FP4.  I 
have to say I like it, it feels smoother to me especially with the high 
contrast images. On the other hand there wasn't a as much separation in the 
dark tones and I would need to up my shadow exposures or drop my film speed 
a bit.  The actuance is definitely better then the HC110 and undiluted D23 
I normally use.  Funny, I've never tried Xtol but after this week I'll be 
picking-up some with anticipation.  Now I only need a 4 liter mixing bowl 
and lots of 1 liter brown glass bottles.
