    Kodak says 9.25 minutes in Dilution B for P3200 TMAX @ 1600, 20°C, small tank.

    This page says for dilution E, develop 50% longer than B

    So that comes out to about 13 minutes & 50 seconds.

    That page also warns, "Be sure to use at least 6 mL of syrup per 135-36 or 120 roll of film, even if this requires you to put more than the usual amount of liquid in the tank."

    Hope that's helpful,

    For HC-110 (1+49), my own personal time is 14 minutes for EI 1600 with 30 seconds of continuous inversions and 4 inversions over 10 seconds at the start of each minute.

    For EI 3200, I tend to move to 1+24 dilution and develop for 9.5 minutes.

    I use the 1+49 (Rodinal-style dilution) as my MO.

    I want to thank all of you. Fortunately, I met a photographer yestarday who usually works with Tmax 3200, EI 1600. He showed me some negatives that were developed with HC110 (E) during 13 minutes. They looked fine.
    This information is according with some of your recommendations, so I am decided to test it.
    Thanks to all of you,
    Henry.
