I understand you can get a speed increase from most films. You can reliably increase by two stops, but sacrifice some of the fine grain properties of this good all round developer.
Gives fine grain, smooth results with just about any film with more than box speed. I haven’t found this to be necessary and use my standard times for each of the 10 development sessions.
For further details see delivery estimates in cart. Throw on a contrast filter and you probably have the perfect film at least for me. The difference is in the developing times, of course. Grains that, in my experience, unless the enlargements are 11 x 14 or bigger, are negligible.
