    Kodak has updated their tech pub (new one is F-4043) for TMAX 400 to reflect the new emulsion.

    I'd like to get my hands on the tech pub for the previous version of this film to do compariskions.

    Anybody have it handy?

    Thanks

    When is the new film going to be available? Looks like they are still selling the "old" version at Calumet and B&H.

    If you look at Roger Hicks original post I think he & John Sexton quote the Kodak Press release and it rolls out on a stock replacement basis in December.

    So we have to use up the old Tmax 400 first :smile: I'll buy 20 or 30 rolls next week . . .

    Well, that was certainly easy to find. I should have first checked whether Kodak had updated its "TMAX films" pub for new TMY. They haven't. Mea culpa...

    The only nit I have with this tech sheet is that XTOL is the developer most highly recommended for TMY by Kodak - yet they don't publish a characterisitc curve for XTOL and TMY.

    Speaking of characterisitc curves - there certainly don't seem to be major changes and it's hard to draw comparisons because they are offsetting their "log Rel H" a bit differently in the past.

    Any thoughts on any differences?

    Your mileage may certainly vary, then, as to when this new film appears at your local store or online retailer.
