Rudeofus: The grain does NOT suffer. Absolute accutance I cannot state, unequivocally, but I make sharp negatives: on the baseboard of the enlarger I max out the head and look with a magnifying glass: and they are SHARP. AS sharp? Don't know if there is a technical trade off. But I have no complaints.
True, long term stability I cannot ascertain but, so far, no complaints.
Bleach and fix concentrations: MUCH experimentation here and my dilutions are fine. They 'get' all the silver out. Period. (And, as PE correctly states: that is no small task.)
Of course, this is full frame 35mm film. - David Lyga
