This is really interesting! If there are no cons except for the extended time, why have we never heard of this? I would much, much rather take the extra time than going through the PITA of keeping 38C and having to stress and hurry with the developer.

I know that Tetenal themselves claim that you can develop at 30C for 8 minutes, so if that doesn't affect the colors, it makes perfect sense to do it at 20C for an extended time.

Anyone else tried this? I don't want to screw up my film.
