Agfa R09 One Shot
I have a thing for powder developers. I like using them.
Since Ilfosol 3 and Kodak TMax are more expensive than Xtol, Microphen, ID-11 or D-76, and not so flexible, I always keep several stock solutions ready to use depending on the film, ISO and the results I want. Usually Xtol and ID-11.
I’ve used Rodinal a lot but I don’t seem to get the hang of it. The same with one of the new “brothers”, the Agfa R09 One Shot. However, a couple of months ago I got 500ml of Adox APH 09 and loved it!
Comparing it with the Agfa R09 One Shot, the grain of the Adox APH 09 is tighter and more uniform, it makes a more beautiful pattern. However the Adox APH 09 has a low shelf life. I keep it stored with all my other chemicals but he started to form solid residues on the bottom.
Anyway, as always, my conclusions are to be taken with a grain of salt.
