    David, try XTOL replenish and compare that to the other recommendations. A big plus is that XTOL is cheap.

    Well, I have not tried the XTOL yet but I do find that standard BW developers work quite adequately if (and only if) you do not expect all the shadows and you are prepared to give short development without risk of unevenness. You do this buy developing in an open tank and, at the end of development, immediately lifting the reel and putting it into the stop quickly. Agitate frequently. WARNING, excessive dilution does not 'solve the time problem' as it will provide less separation between highlight and midtones I found. - David Lyga

    I can get great shadow details and smooth continuous tone ranges with XTOL replenished by using standard development techniques and without any extra effort. That is why I made the recommendation to try it in post #21.
