Dev time at 1+49 dilution @20degC would be 10.75 minutes (10'45"). This works VERY well for me. Much better grain structure than heavy agitation.

There is a correction in my previous post. I will go with Thomas regarding the shadow details since my agitation scheme is based on


...but, I was shooting at box speed with correction factor for K2(Yellow Filter) applied. So the EI was @50.
