    I'm fairly familiar with Customcolor - they do my E6 (through ABC).

    You might consider making an enquiry with The Lab to see if they have worked with the film: http://www.thelabvancouver.com/

    I'd send to THE LAB if they were close to me, but I live an hour and half out of Vancouver and get my B&W films sent through either London Drugs or Lens and Shutter which both send to Custom Color. Its not practical to drive to Vancouver to get developing done.

    Looking at the information that is available, I note the following:

    Ilford gives times (4 minutes) for the films in T-Max RS at 24C.

    Kodak gives times for a bunch of their films in both T-Max RS and X-Tol stock at 24C.

    The Kodak time for the new T-Max 400 (TMY2) in T-Max RS at 24C is 4 1/2 minutes - which is close to 4 minutes - just a 12.5 % increase over the Ilford recommendation for their Pan films in T-Max RS at 24C.

    The Kodak time for the new T-Max 400 (TMY2) in stock X-Tol at 24C is 5 1/4 minutes - which isn't far from 4 minutes - just a 16.7 % increase over the Ilford recommendation for their Pan films in T-Max RS at 24C.

    So I would ask Customcolor to use their times for TMY-2 plus 16.6%.

    You could do the same sort of comparison and extrapolation with other Kodak films, like Tri-X 400.

    That begs the other option - if you're going to depend on someone else's lab, shoot film they can readily process. Pan-F Plus, FP4 Plus and HP5 Plus will be routine for them, I expect.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
