Developed for 3 minutes, I got a Dmax of 1.9. I've never conducted very
thorough tests with this film. That is, I've never printed step wedges and
plotted the curves. I made a few test exposures until I got negatives that
had the range I was looking for. I have noticed occasional mottling in the
highlights when I developed for only two minutes. I've been considering
trying POTA, since it's a very low contrast developer and might work well
with a lith film.
