I am just getting to know Michael Smith's Amidol formula. I was reading in one of Steven Anchell's cookbooks about other Amidol formulae, and noticed that the ingredients are the same but the proportions are significantly different.

What is the effect on the print? For instance, if I use Weston's or Photographer's Formulary's formulae, how will print look different? And assuming that it won't look as...fill in the blank...will it still have deeper blacks and longer range than a more standard developer?

Yikes, it's late. I hope the question is clear.

Thanks!
