    I use the "Adonal" stuff, rather than the R09 one-shot. Not sure what the difference is. I use mine one-shot anyway.

    Any idea if they are much different Randy?

    Everybody says it's all the same and only good for one shot, But Lee and I have done 8 sheets in hangers with 75ml diluted into 4000 ml. I copied him.

    Interesting, because the Adonal stuff is twice as much.

    There is a huge thread on APUG with a million different opinions. Sadly I'm using the more expensive stuff and I've calibrated my developing with it for almost all my film, so I guess I'll just keep going with it. $15 for months worth of developer is nothing anyway!

    My current bottle says One Shot R09 made in Germany from Freestyle.

    That's why i bought the cheaper one, they seem the same.

    I also keep upping the order until shipping changes and only buy when shipping is best.

    I was doing 4 sheets (one at a time) in 8x10 trays (with glass on the bottom) in 1500 ml + 30ml of chemistry. (Actually I started with three, but then pushed it to 5 sheets, because I was going through Rodinal too quickly). I have no densitometer, unfortunately, but I started to visually notice contrast fall off at 5 sheets. So, I usually just developed 4 sheets in 1500 developer. I would usually double up exposures, so I'd do one negative from two holders, then since I had copy exposures for insurance, I'd develop them as the 3rd and 4th sheet.

    When I switched to tanks and hangars, I just doubled this logic since my tanks are 1 gallon each. 1500 x 2 is only 3000 ml (800ml short of the 3.8 liter = 1 gallon), so I just added an extra 15ml. My processing must have been more vigorous in the tanks and hangars because the contrast went up. I went from contact printing with a 1 and 1.5 filter (tray development) to a 0, 0.5, and sometimes 1 filter.

    No science to justify it, just trial and error.

    I think I actually did up to 10 sheets once in 3.8 chemistry.

    I only have 8 hangars, so I have to dry the hangars to reuse them. That's why I ended up just doing multiples of 8.

    Re: Images shot on X-ray film

    So you are saying 75ml to 3800 ml?

    Yeah. Isn't 76ml 1:50 for 3.8 liters?
