    Eastman direct positive movie film

    On an impulse buy on that auction site I picked up three rolls of Eastman DMP 5360 film. The film is blood red and has an ASA of <1. I don't develop myself yet and my lab uses TMAX developer. Any ideas on time and temp with TMAX 1:4 so I can get a decent image?

    Got it. I don't have the option to change developer from TMAX though. I suppose I could just wing it and have the dev the first roll @ 7 min & 25 C or whatever their machine can do that would give me the most development. They weren't receptive to changing concentrations from the stock 1:4 for TMAX. If I can't get something that way I will hold out until I can access a dark room and do it myself.

    I would suggest the latter. It is ortho film, so you can turn on the life and inspect it during development - a manageable risk. I would suspect paper developer may be ok here as it is a really slow film.

    I checked on flickr and the guy that sells it seems to be the only one with samples there. Maybe you should post some of your wild and crazy shots! :0

    You really have to develop the living crap out of it to get decent images (and that's after already exposing the crap out of it!)

    I don't think a machine set up to develop standard B&W film with TMax developer is going to cut it. Time to get a tank and reel and some jugs of chems!
