Tmax400 Images Thread
 
One of my favorite films. Some others love it as well. Others still could live without it. :)

Please post Tmax 400 images.
List workflow details if possible.

Good idea this thread. There are however two Tmax400 films: 400-2TMY and 400-TMY. For both: Perceptol 1+2; 23 degrees C.; 11 minutes; every 30 sec. agitation.

Hi Erik

There are two types. Lets include both in the thread.
I have not always recorded which type in my notes.

The second version according to Kodak is a sharper film. Everything else is the same (according to Kodak): development, EI, scanning, etc. And I agree with them I treated them the same during the change over. I had zero problems.

I see T-max400 as an obvious improvement of TriX, but TriX seems to be a far more popular film. Why?

Tri-X has a lot of flexibility. You can pull it to 250, push it to 1600, and still get good results. When I use Tri-X with Diafine, I know I'll get good results exposing at iso 800; for TMax, it's 500. Not a huge difference, but still...

With Tri-X's flexibility, there is IMO a trade-off in the grain department. I prefer the finer grain of TMax 400. Also, whites seem to sparkle in TMax 400 in a way I don't see with Tri-X (Andy's photo of the goose above is a good example). TMax 400 has become my go-to black and white for travel.

This photo is a great example of one reason I like TMax 400 so much: it seems to make whites sparkle. Beautiful photo, Andy.

Yes, I think it has a larger tonal scale than TriX, therefore it has a richer appearance. TriX is more graphic, like an B+W photo in an old newspaper.

Tell me if I'm wrong, but someone above said something about a difference between TriX and TMY (-2). TMY (-2) is for excellent tonal values, but more important it is for sharp images. In the beginning it was for studio B&W photos that were very sharp and landscape photography. Now it is used as a general use film. But I'm sorry I still have a few problems with it, example: muddy images on non 'sunny 16' images (roll film). I still believe TriX does this better in that respect (with roll film).

We should be posting images here that show its strengths: sharpness and tonal range.

It's a fantastic image. I would say keep posting it :) . Many of mine have been posted previously as well.
It seems beneficial to collect images with these nice films in one place.
Many people use it in different ways and good results.

Hi John
Your images are always beautifully crisp and refined. I am more of a general purpose user.
Other find tri-x to be their most flexible film. I like Tmax 400. I rate it from 100-1600 and get results I'm satisfied with.
