XTOL 1:1 + Rodinal 1:100
I’m still playing around with XTOL/Rodinal split. These were deved in XTOL 1:1 + Rodinal 1:100 for 7:00 minutes at 75F, which was probably about 10% longer than ideal for my preferred density. I’m a little surprised that 6ml of Rodinal shifted the density by this much. In retrospect, I’m not even sure what this combo is supposed to accomplish. At this dilution, both of these developers are compensating, and XTOL’s solven action is already greatly diminished in comparison to its stock form. I suppose if I diluted the XTOL even further there would be even less solvent action and even more compensation, but that doesn’t seem like something I really need.
