    Whoops, forgot something! Dk50 is not a paper developer but I will admit I never had a reason to try it on paper, perhaps it might!

    It will develop paper - but you would need to test it to see if you like the results.

    If you add about 9 to 10 grams/liter of Hydroquinone and 1.5 grams/liter of Potassium Bromide to the DK-50 stock solution, you will get a developer similar to Kodak D-72 (which is similar to Dektol).

    Years ago, (because we had pounds of it generously donated), i used DK-50 1:1 on HP5. It gave nice contrast, and good mid-tone separation, as well as good acutance. Yes, in 35mm it does show some grain, but it was a pleasing grain. I made a lot of informal portraits in overcast or indoor conditions with it.

    Somehow I can still remember one full-length portrait where you can make out (barely) the lettering on the snaps of his Levis. If you have the right conditions, it's probably worth using.
