    T400CN

    I got hold of three T400CN (T-Max C-41 processed) which expiration date is 2001.

    As I did for one roll of BW400CN, I intend to develop those films with B&W developer (most probably D-76). During a first try, I applied the same time development than BW400CN on the T400CN roll (D-76 22 min at 22 C) but the film got "burnt".

    So I made some research for the T400CN time development but I found nothing.

    Would somebody have some clue regarding it, whatever the developer would be?

    Yours,

    Oo I would have done bw400cn 14mins in d-76 stock, so I assume you are talking stand development. Have you tried just normal agitation at 14mins?? Or d-76 1+1 instead of stock?

    T400CN was a quite different film to BW400CN. For one thing T400CN was designed to be printed on real black & white paper (like Ilford XP2) while BW400CN is intended for printing on RA4 colour paper. I once accidently developed a roll of T400CN in D76 1:1 and there was not much of an image on the negs as I recall.

    IMO T400CN was a great film (developed in C41) and one of only a few Kodak products that I have really missed over the years. I liked it better than XP2 because its speed was closer to a true 400ISO than XP2. OzJohn

    This film was designed to be processed as a color film. Results with a BW developer will be rather poor particularly with a color film that is 10 years old.

    Agreed - I have an old Kodak data sheet for this film, they recommend only C-41, and specifically not to use ordinary B&W dev.
