Tmax + D-76 = gorgeous

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by David Nebenzahl, Jul 16, 2010.

  1. Just want to report that my first use of Tmax 100 (in 35mm *film*)
    souped in D-76 (1:1) resulted in some gorgeous looking negatives and
    prints. (Not claiming that this the best developer to use w/this
    film--it's what I had, and I understand that most folks claim that Xtol
    is the best stuff to use, but the results were very pleasing.)

    Wish I could post some results, but my scanner is just too crappy to do
    the prints any justice.

    I have a 12" one - don't use it as a rule, though.

  3. Usually inappropriate to use it as a ruler, but hardly ever using it
    doesn't seem right somehow.

  4. Tmax was designed to be developed in D-76. There is a TMAX developer
    as well, but it was designed for pushing T-Max film. For normal
    negatives, D-76 was the intended developer all along.

  5. Good to know. I just heard from the photo guru over at, Richard Knoppow, that he also likes Microdol-X (full
    strength) with Tmax. I'll try that next time. (Results in a one-stop
    loss of speed; no big deal.)

    I always heard that ID-11 and D-76 were identical (never used ID-11).

  7. Yes: D-76 = ID-11.
