I have tried it !

On every forum I have read, they say it is better to develop the Rollei R3 in one of its dedicated developers Rollei RHS or Rollei RLS. Everything else will give an inferior result or grey washed out photos...

Now I am proud to announce that R3 at 100 iso develops well in R09 1+100 one hour stand development at 20C/68F. 3 minutes pre-soak than 30 seconds of slow inversions and 3 taps. 3 slow inversions and 3 taps at half time (30 minutes).

Here is the result (other to come...)

I see the uneven development often obtained from stand development and 120 film. I found more agitation helps to prevent that, at least on my last attempt it seem too.

You can find them sometimes on the german ebay (I have a stored search )...

Yes, but it is not on every shot. I think it was too hot that day (over 20C).
When it is colder I don't have this problem...
