I have very limited experience with it. It developed well with Pyrocat HD - I was printing on Azo at the time, so I used the 2:2:100 dilution. My temps were 80F, as that is my water temperature here in Florida. Sorry, I don't remember times, but I did not see any excessive pyro stain. I'd give PMK a shot, if I were you.

I have read in the past that this film develops excessive stain with pyro devs such as my favorite, PMK, so I am hoping that some of you might have had some excellent results with other devs. I have found the following info:*

* Please recommend your “favorite” dev and some starting times/temps/agitation.*

******Calumet doesn’t list it and B&H lists it as discontinued. Unless you use the link above, it doesn’t even show up on the Bergger site. Discontinued? Or delayed due to the shuffling of film manufacturers in U.K. and Europe? *
