    I used this conversion sheet with good success some time ago for getting DS-10 sorted out. I thought it might prove useful for others.... It's simply the Massive Development Chart info for Xtol pasted into a calculating sheet side by side for DS-10. It gives the 20% time adjustment suggested for starting points with DS-10 and most films.

    For those interested, this is the formula:

    DS-10 1L

    Dimezone S 0.15 g
    Ascorbic Acid 8.0 g
    Boric Acid 4.0 g
    Salicylic Acid 1.0 g
    Sodium Sulfite 75.0 g
    Triethanolamine 10 ml
    Water to 1000 ml

    I just noticed that there were blank zones not calculated. Here's an updated sheet. While I was at it, I also added some filtering ability to make it easier to isolate what you need.
