    I keep hearing about Kodak's offerings of BW films, and I have been wondering about trying Tmax 100 (I like slower speed films). Any thoughts?

    I have always liked the fine grain it offers. Different from HP5+, it's worth a look.

    Thanks Jim. Yes, fine grain, me too. I just got two rolls of it and the Ilford FP4 125.

    In looking through my notes from a few decades ago, I found my best results came from using T-Max developer rather than D-76 or HC110; just my $0.02 worth....

    Good to note. I haven't had the courage to develop my own film as yet, maybe someday.

    It's not too hard. B&W only takes a changing bag, a tank, a stopwatch, and some chemistry. You do need to carefully follow time and temperature directions - at least until you get consistent results. Then you can experiment. You will also need a place to dry film that is dust free. Showers work well using some clothespins and a short line. Check out www.digitaltruth.com for ideas.
