Taming Contrast

Adox CMS 20 II is basically a high contrast ultra fine grain microfilm stock that can be used as a continuous tone film when developed with special developers. The main developer for this film (Adotech) tends to be expensive so photographers are always looking for other options. In this case I tried Rollei RLC Low contrast developer, itself not cheap but I had some around. It was a very bright day, almost unfair for this film but I did get some usable images.
