I just mixed up a batch of fresh Dektol and it came out dark brown! I thought I was having a major senior moment. After searching the internet I discovered that Kodak says: Dektol batches with date codes of August 2019 or later will exhibit a dark brown solution when mixed. However, image quality is unaffected - The color is due to an impurity which is not photo-active. Our manufacturing as well as an outside lab have tested the dark colored Dektol batches: Sensitometry Dmax, Dmin, paper speed, and image tone match the Dektol standard. We are working on the source of the impurity so we can get the appearance back to normal. Of course they're going to state that all is well. Has anyone here noticed any difference (no matter how slight) in how prints look with this weird solution compared with the old stuff?
