T-MAX 100 in D-76

Hi

The Massive Development Chart has T-Max 100 in D-76 1:1 at two different times (12 minutes or 9.5 minutes). Anyone have experience with D-76 and T-Max? Any idea of the time and development routine?

TMax 100 D-76 1+1 100 9.5 9.5 11.25 20C [notes]

I ran a few rolls at 10 minutes and they were fine for optical printing. If you were developing to scan, you might want to go with 9.5 for less contrast.

If I already know that my pictures were taken in contrasty light I develop at 9 or 9.5 minutes. If I think I may need more then I extend the developing up to 10.5. But I don't recall needing to develop for 12 minutes. Maybe that is for the older version?

EDIT: Come to think of it I do think that Kodak's Publication 4016 (Tmax Data Sheet) also discusses 12 minute developing time for large tank development. Since I always do small tanks I have never paid too much attention to that one.

EDIT 2: Nope. Only reference I could find with that development time has to do if you have extended the Exposure Index of TMY400 to EI/ISO1600.

Some advice though. Look up the manufacturer's data sheets on your films and they will provide you with great developing advice, much better than you will get from anywhere else.

Thanks. Sounds like 9.5 will be fine.

I bought T-MAX 400 when i first started out, three years ago, and I really didn't like it for street sheeting; had it developed by the lab in XTOL -- flat, muddy . . . meh . . . Then I used another roll for landscape shots and developed it myself in D-76. I discovered that I liked TMAX for the light, airy feel it gives in bright conditions, especially with low to medium contrast lenses.

I decided to try T-MAX 100 for very specific purposes. Took one roll shooting in a tropical garden, the other in a green St. Petersburg, FL neighbourhood. I don't really want high contrast, and I scan, so I think I will go with 9.5 minutes.

When I use TMX I develop in D-76, 1+1 for 9.5 min. @ 68 degrees.

This is the time given on page 6 of the Kodak publication:

http://www.kodak.com/global/en/profe...4016/f4016.pdf

If my memory serves me correctly Kodak changed the formulation of TMX and changed the developing times.

Opening up a 5 pack of TMX 120 it says, Kodal Professional T-Max 100 film/100TMX replaces Kodak T-Max 100 Professional film, and requires a different development time."

At any rate I develop it D-76 1+1 9.5 minutes at 68 degrees.

But I have to honest, the TMX I still have and use expired in September 2005!

Hope this helps you!

When you start out with a new film and a new developer, you have to do your own tests. They don't have to be extensive, but there are many ways to test on the IN. If you want my simple test PM me.

For me Tmax 100 is best (again for me) shot at 50 and developed at almost 100 speeds. I don't use D-76 now but whatever you do use don't change more than one variable at a time.

Tmax100 can be a wonderfully soft, grain free, sharp, almost sensual film:

Did you check the notes? One says for sheet film.

Here's my test write up. I am checking out T-Max 100 as part of my current test of about 7 different films.

TMax 100 in D76 is, in my opinion, a wonderful combination. Deep blacks, creamy whites, and scans nicely. I usually shoot it at 80, but anything from 50-100 is fine.

I always found starting at the manufacturer's time and adjusting for your shooting condition worked better. I gave up on massive dev chart times after a while.

Both were shot with Tmax 100 and developed with D76 1+1. Not sure the developing time, as I can check when I'm back home from work but love the results. I'm pretty confident that I've followed the digital truth film chart because the first shot was and developed at 100 ASA and the second one was shot at 50 ASA but developed at 64 ASA, based from the film chart online.

Both shot using a Fuji GX680ii with 180 F3.2; Natural Light; V600 scanner
