  1. With Agfa Rodinal getting harder and harder to find and trusty Kodak D-76 is still available, I thought I'd share.
    I shot this image two weeks ago and had the film (Rollei Ortho 25) developed in D-76, 7MIN @ 20c
    EOS 1 with EF 17-40 f/4L USM @ 17mm with a B+W UV
    EI 25 Auto Exposure @ -1/3
     
  2. Here is the image sized down to 700 x ?

  3. I didn't say that it couldn't be found. Besides, I saw the bottle(s) there when I bought the Rollei film.
    With the image that I'm posting, I showing that Rollei Ortho 25 works just fine in D76. Anybody who needs information or wants to see an image of that film and developer combo.
     
  4. Stephen, I use Rodinal all the time. I love the Rollei Ortho. I've also had great results in Xtol.
     
  5. Good to know that this film works very well in D-76. Prior to this, I'd heard that developing Rollei Ortho 25 in D-76 would give results that were too high in contrast. Based off that, I've developed all my Ortho 25 in Rodinal 1:50 and have been very happy with the results.
     
  6. Nice result.

    Preferable low contrast developers for this Rollei Ortho 25 film:
    Rollei Low Contrast (RLC, also suitable for the ATP-1.1 Tech Pan film)
    Rodinal 1+100 or 1+150 (Also in 1+150 suitable for the ATP-1.1 film)

    Best regards,

    Robert
     
  7. Like the photo. About Ortho film. I cut 4x5 Efke Ortho 25 film for my 130 and 124 roll film Kodak Brownies. Develope in D-76. Need to try Rodinal.
     
  8. Jack, how does the Ekfe's ortho film compare to Rollei's ortho film? You really do need to try the stuff in Rodinal tho, the results are truly amazing.

  9. John, I like the results very much. So much in fact, that I'm thinking about using the Rollei film in 120 for my old Brownie 120 and 116 cameras. Haven't tried the Rollei film yet.
