    Kodak D-19 was originally formulated by Kodak for use with X-Ray film. D-19 is described as a high contrast, high energy developer for films and plates.

    I use it full strength. It is a very useful developer if you are printing alt process work that requires a large density range negative. Most films developed over about 8 or 9 minutes will hit gamma infinity in this developer, and IME, this is about a CI of 1.1-1.2 for most films. If you are shooting a scene with a low brightness range and want a full scale print, then you can soup your negative in this and get a nice beefy neg. Be warned, though, that if your scene has a brightness range greater than 5 or 6 stops, you may get an unprintable negative.

    This is a developer often used for aerial photography, which by its nature is often a low contrast affair due to atmospheric haze.

    It is a clean working developer with very low b+f, which is also a benefit for alt-work.
    I just want to feel nostalgic like I used to.
