    I have Kodak's chart telling me to process TMax 400 in D76 at 68 degrees for 8 minutes. What if I want to do it a bit warmer? How do I calculate time differences for varying temps? Say 70 or 72 degrees? Thank you!

    With TMAX it's Ok to go to 75F. I've heard it can stand up to 100F, but did not verify the info.

    However, your times may become too short and unreliable (5 min or less); in this case, use the D-76 1+1.
