I realize that this is a large format forum, however: I am testing a 120 camera that I just purchased from Jim @ Midwest and have on hand a brick of Ilford Pan F+. I thought I would process it in Rodinal, perhaps 1:100. Has anyone tried this combination or have helpful comments. Thanks for your help.

Look at the Massive developement Chart at: www.digitaltruth.com/devchart
It suggests rating the film at 25 ASA and developing in Rodinal 1:100 for 15min.
To do the full 50ASA you want to use 1:50 for 11 min. I have been using R09, the original formula of Rodinal for just about everything but the fastest of films.

Ilford Pan F IE 40, Rodinal 1:50 15 minutes, agitate initially for first minute, then for 15 seconds at 5 and 10 minutes. This is called a semi stand I believe.

Pre Soak
Water rinse no stop bath
Hypo Clear

They should be perfect but the EI is with a Mamiya system, it should be a great starting point if not right on.

I like PanF+ at 50 asa in DK-50. The link is to a 35mm shot.
