    Developing Tmax 3200 with kodak Tmax Developer

    Hey,

    I shot a roll of Tmax 3200 film(24mm x 36mm) and i was wondering what dilution&developing time is recommended for developing the roll. I'm using Kodak Tmax for development.
    The film was shot 3200@3200(or atleast if i got the whole EI thing right, basically i didn't under or overexposed any photo deliberatly)
    Most of the shots are evening/night shots, made on a stand with a shutter time of about 2" - 45"

    Hello,

    Have a look at the Massive Development Chart :

    Ah wow thanks man, looks very helpful !

    Also I read somewhere it's better to develop tmax 3200 at 1600 or even 800 unless you really need the speed, is this correct ?

    Some say the ISO of these films is rated too high, and the films should be exposed to a lower ISO.
    You should check by yourself that you have enough shadow details on the negative.

    Both Tmax 3200 and Delta 3200 seem to be in reality a true 1600 films as I have yet to obtain shadow details at 3200. I shoot Tmax 3200 at 1600 and develop in Clayton F76 at 1:11 rather than 1:9.

    I reckon that the 'true' speed is closer to 1250 for these films and the stated dev. times are definitely push processing. Mohawk: If you EXPOSED the film at 3200 DON'T develop it for 800 or anything else. You'd be underexposing AND underdeveloping. Not a good thing

    Actual speed is 800-1000, Tmax 3200 used to be called P3200, P standing for push and it was even partially explained on the canisters. When I used to work in a pro lab we charged extra for processing Tmax 3200 since it required twice the development times as other films. Negatives look really good and easy to print at a rated speed of 1000.

    That's the problem with figures as name dsignation.

    Kodak themselves say that TM P3200 has in their developers an ISO rating of 800-1000!

    They also indicate that this film is intended for underexposure and prolonged development.

    Anyway, a film is what you make of it.
