    I use it since the mid of the seventies
    Calbe A 49, diluted 1+1.
    The sharpness of this developer will increase a lot when diluting.

    A pretty toxid, old type developer ingredients like you can see in above SDS PDF file.

    Dear Andreas,

    my main problems with R80s are not concerned with sharpness but with empty shadows and blocked highlights. The A49 cures both. You get 50 ASA real speed which quite a lot for such a high definition film.
    I printed up to 40x30 cm² from 35 mm. You can see hints of grain mostly in the sky if you look close. But I don't see any muddy borderlines.

    Thanks, Uwe. I'm in the same boat regarding the s-slope of this film. Time to try A49 I guess...
    Regards,
    Andreas
