The test box of Lodima that I bought renders the most beautiful print color I've ever seen. I developed it in Artcraft amidol (MAS formula, 3cc KBr). I liked the color so much that I didn't tone it for fear that it would change. In this respect, at least, I find it superior to Azo.

I can't understand the lengths to which people will go to avoid using amidol. I know that it's a PIA to get started with, because of all the ancillary chemicals you have to buy, but once you lay in a supply of those you won't use anything else. Quick and easy to mix, blackest of blacks on silver chloride paper.
