For normal contrast, neutral tones, dilute 1:1 and develop for 2 minutes. Increased dilution results in lower contrast without affecting image tonality. Carefully used with thick-emulsion films, it can result in very long-scale negatives. With tabular grain film it's a disaster waiting to happen. It's big claim to fame is that it can also be used as a high-energy film developer when maximum speed and increased contrast are required. This comes with a significant increase in grain, accompaned by mediocre tonality.
