    TMAX 100 - 2 Stop Push?

    I accidentally exposed TMAX 100 as ISO 400. I've heard that TMAX doesn't push very well but I would like to salvage what I can. I currently have DDX & HC-110 developers in stock. Which ones would you recommend using & at what dilution? Thanks in advance.

    I would try HC 110 (Dil B) at 12 m or microdol X at 23 - 25 m. These are just a guess.

    Dear Nikkorray,

    In the Xtol data sheet, Kodak publishes detailed times and temperatures for pushing T-Max.

    You should be able to push TMX two stops in either one. For HC-110, my own preference would be Dilution G (1:119 from syrup -- be sure to observe a minimum 3 ml syrup per roll, which require a double tank with at least 360 ml for 35 mm); I find development for 3 times the Dilution B time, with agitation every 3 minutes, gives me normal negatives; for a two-stop push, I'd go to 4 times Dilution B time and increase agitation from 3 minute intervals to every minute.

    The result will be contrasty, no shadow detail, and you'll likely wish you could reshoot -- but it's likely the negatives will be printable enough for some uses. TMX, unfortunately, is one of the least forgiving emulsions in terms of exposure.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
