HI,
I decided to use above combination because it develop in higher temp. - 24 degree C and have longer than 5 min. dev. time, with rotary tank - according to data sheet. Because my location is rather hot and difficult to keep in lower temperature.

I usuall shot with a no. 8 filter and calumat 150/5.6 mc lense.

Since I want to concentrate on the subjects instead of chemistry, should anyone could share your experience? Should i follow the datasheet rigidly?

Use RS at 1:9 dilution instead of the 1:4 reccomended by the data sheet and give it 50% more developing time. For example if the data sheet indicates 5 min at 74º with the 1:4 dilution, use 8 min with the 1:9 dilution.

This way you will prevent blown highlights. This was my developer of choice before I moved to Mx and I think you will be pleased with the results.
