    T MAX 100 Developing

    I've just loaded my first roll of Kodak T MAX 100 in to the camera. I use Ilford chemicals, ID-11, Ilfostop, Rapid Fixer, I've just started to look at developing and fixing times online, I'd really welcome comments from anyone else thats used this combination of film and chemicals.

    Cheers

    Use the recommendations in the PDF's on Ilfords website. The stop bath and fixer instructions on the bottles are OK as wll. Good luck

    Just go for it, i had that bug before, but once i started i never look back, i lost few rolls because of mistakes [wrong loading, not exposing the roll], but the development was always or mostly spot on, if there is a problem it is mostly me, follow that sheet Ian linked to and give it a try, Ilfostop and fixer are not a big deal, just let us know what you will get.

    Good luck

    Yep, following Ilford's instructions is very reliable and provides great results.

    Establish good consistent habits now and you'll find they will become automatic once you have your processes down.

    TMAX films can build contrast quickly so it's a good idea to be precise with your times and temperature that gives you the negs you want.

    Go for it.

    I'd use the published time for development stage as a starting point. If you have to error, error on shorter side than longer.

    Time for stop and fix aren't critical. 30 seconds stop and 5 minutes fix is sufficient.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    Be sure you have a good thermometer -- the change in contrast with developing time/temperature is steeper with TMAX than any other films.

    Just souped these TMAX 100 in ID11 (1+3) at Ilford recommended times at around 69F/70F. I think it was 14 minutes, but will have to check. Link to my blog (it's safe):
