    weird Kodak film names?

    So i'm developing some Tmax 100 and notice the times for 'Kodak Professional TMAX 100 is 6 1/2 mins
    BUT
    TMAX professional 100 is 9 mins . ???? wha?
    my film cans say the first one. Actually just look at expired can it says TMAX 100 in big letters, then PROFESSIONAL.
    Is that the diff? the older stuff is developed shorter?

    What developer are you using, and at what temperature?

    It is true that 10 years ago Kodak changed the films, how they are named and the recommended times.

    Here is the older technical information sheet, with the prominent Discontinuance Notice: http://wwwcaen.kodak.com/global/en/p...bs/f32/f32.pdf

    EDIT: The name change was from the old: Kodak T-Max 100 Professional Film to the new: Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Film

    The labelling changed at the same time, including adding a warning about new times on the packages.
