Yup, NOTHING can be done! Try-X, Diafine, EI 1000
Not sure what this is supposed to prove, if anything.

Excellent result with Diafine. Much better than I was ever able to get with the stuff. Had good results with Acufine, though. All I can think of is that Orny must not have been using a developer suitable to push with, or something else with his technique. Again, very nice pic with the Diafine.

Thanks. Diafine is pretty easy, but I don't get quite the 1600 EI with TX that they recommend, more like 1000. I've never been able to get the lifespan out of mine that some folks do. It was recommended on APUG that I use a pre-soak for all divided devs. I have started to use that and so far, so good. TX in Diafine has a bit of an "old look" to it, more like TX of the '70's and it woks quite well for wedding b/w.
