This is why news photographers used Dektol. It was quick, grainy, and unsharp. Used for 3 mins. (1:3) or 7 mins. (1:7) with Super XX film and a quick wash and dry in Alcohol and they had a printable negative for the newspaper.
There is another thread here on Dektol as a film developer. I wish this could be crossed over with that!
Wait doesn't alcohol have a bad effect on film? I thought I read you weren't supposed to use that on film...
