    [QUOTE=DanielStone;782579]hi all,

    had to ask this one as soon as i heard it with my own ears.

    A friend of mine was telling me about how a woman who shot for Vogue back in the 50's used Dektol as her film developer. It gave hear a very graphic, high contrast look and obviously gave her the look she wanted.

    I am very interested in trying this out for myself, but wasn't sure regarding times for developing, etc...

    If any of you have had any experience, please let me know. Would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    We souped 4x5 Super Pan Pres Type B (ASA 125) in Dektol, printed the negs wet, and dried them on a dryer reserved for dirty prints when the courier was waiting for a print to take to the newspaper printer.

    Two minutes in straight Dektol with constant, gentle agitation in a 5x7 tray did it. Beautiful negs, actually.

    Yes, stock diluted 1+9. I'm sorry I don't have a time for you, but that should come up in your search.

    There are half a dozen entries for films in Dektol on the Massive Dev Chart. I actually would have expected more entries, but it's a start....

    I used Dektol for grain and high contrast before I discovered D-19, which I found to be more versatile and easily controllable for film. Dektol gives the film a serious kick in the teeth, though. There is nothing off the shelf that I know of that does quite what it does to film (except perhaps graphic arts developers). I would use double the standard paper dilution (making it a 1 part stock to 7 parts water working solution) for five to ten minutes, if I remember correctly, depending on the contrast I wanted. I usually got the near-halftone look I wanted with eight to ten minutes on a contrasty film underexposed, like Pan F at 200 or FP4 at 500. 1:9 at 5 minutes might be something I would try if I wanted a little more midtone-wise...in fact, I might just try that now. I know for sure that I have something that I did with it and Rollei Pan 25. I should be able to find it easily if you are interested. It is not an extreme example, as it does have a midtone or two, but it will give you an idea. (All my times were arrived at using approximately 72F water, BTW.)

    Years back, I developed a couple of rolls of Tri-X 35mm exposed at ISO 1600 in Dektol. I don't recall the
    development time or dilution. It produced a really intense, grainy image. In bright sunlight, it looked almost
    like infrared film. Definitely worth a try.
