Using less solution with R09 Spezial

Post by jonnymm » Sat Sep 21, 2019 4:11 pm

Hi all!

Just got back into film developing recently and really loving it. Wanted to ask a quick question in regards R09 Spezial developer. It states to use 1:15 for a short period and the developer just doesn't last very long. And I'm wondering how anyone tried doing a semi-stand develop to try and lengthen the amount of developer I have?

Film wise I'm using both Tri X and HP5 at box speed and also pushing to 800

I believe that Rodinal Special is similar to Kodak HC110, but I might be wrong.
