[rollei_list] Re: Kodak T Max 400, Rodinal 1+25, 3.5F and Epson 4490

I like the pics.  The grain is evident though, but grain isn't necessarily
bad.  I think some grain gives a perception of sharpness, but I don't like
grainly clouds much in landscape pics.

I have always developed Tmax-400 in HC110 dilution H, which is twice
as dilute as what most people use.  I do this for 4x5 film, and use a rolling
jobo drum.  The dilute hc110 lets me extend the devlopment time enough where
I can do -1 and -2 stops contractions in contrast without having an unmanageably
short development time.

That has been my main film/developer combo for 4x5 for a couple of years,
but I've been using Ilford FP4+ and Rodinal 1:100 for about 40 minutes using
stand development in a still tank, and having good luck, lately, and really
like that combo a lot.
