We bought on the German market all Agfa Rodinal from the main supplier of Agfa. It can be stored for over a very long period, so if you want to stock up now, no problem. We think in 1/2 a year or so it will be gone and then we will start to import from our Czech supplier (Foma), the Fomadon R09 developer, also a copie of Rodinal, based on para-amino phenol.

Another possibility is R09 from Calbe (OrWo), also available in Germany and maybe also available at JandC in the USA.

Best regards,

Clayton Powder products, available on this site, will give you very good results.

J and C Photo has the pre-WWII Rodinol. Clayton would be the more environmentally friendly choice, though.

a&o supposedly acquired the chemical division and is going to continue with things like Rodinal but I will believe it when I see it.

photographers Formulary has a note on their site that they are making a liquid version and will be launching it soon. They had a powdered version now but since Agfa's announcement they are now saying they are going to do a liquid version.
