Bill, I am a bit curios what "difficult to control" means in this context. When I develop film in Dektol 1:2 for example, I invariably get the same results each time. That is, as long as the film, temp, time, agitation, and concentration of developer is a constant. I don't see wild and varying results with 1:2. Does "difficult to control" mean that Dektol when used "straight" (I gather that means stock) won't give you enough "time" to produce consistent results? Or does it mean the results differ wildly from sheet-to-sheet? etc. I ask because I have heard the phrase "difficult to control" used in the past, and I still don't grasp the meaning. I surely must be missing something.
