    As Ted suggests, there is a great deal more in the article than has been discussed here. I said from the beginning that I would not consider it appropriate to discuss the article in detail until it was in print. Hope you all understand.

    Hi, I have an online subscription to View Camera (for international users) but don't seem to have access to the subscribers' only area. I will ask about that.
    BTW, I did my first test with TMY-2 120 - I determined an IE of 400 and a development time of 7'30'' for XTOL 1:1 rotation development (JOBO CPP-2) with a 5' pre-wash. I will print from the first negs tomorrow.

    I already got the answer to how to access the article - thanks to Andrea and Steve for amazingly speedy responses!

    I have to agree with dpurdy here

    I was left with a
    Thaaaaaaaanks
    I understand the reasoning for putting it here but also a bit of a What? Moment as I don't know whether or not VC donates to Apug or if Apugs owner even minds ...all work done in film photography does in a way help out apug by helping film photography in general


    no big deal
    fan of your photography and applaud the efforts
    not much use for this stuff right now but always interested ..not enough to subscribe to a magazine, though




    He gave his thoughts/questions
    reasonable ones
    gave a second post to assure others -as though he has to- that he's not just being a " bullshitting bastard"
    and yet still gets chewed-out? lol

    If I knew enough I might agree, but i'm not too smart and therefore find great value in tests made by those who know more than me. In this instance it isn't helpful as I'm not a big fan of Tmax.

    Funny, I got the impression when you were doing so much of the leg work at the first APUG gathering in Toronto that you were a right smart fellow. In my reading of Sandy's work over the years I have thought he was of a similar class. Can't say this other fellow has made much of a splash.

    The opinions of those I respect are of considerable value to me. Sure I do my own testing but the thoughts of others can tell me what to expect - or whether to bother. Either way they're useful.

    So little interest or use that you bothered to read and post in the thread... the mind boggles.

    Good article Sandy. Thanks for bringing attention to it. Have you done testing with pyrocat and extreme minimal agitation yet? I'm hoping to start my EMA testing this weekend, assuming the friggin' weather cooperates.

    The TMY-2 is clearly underexposed by visual inspection. Printing last night on Azo grade 3 confirm this. TMY is printable but not the TMY-2
    It looks like the new TMY-2 is slower than the old, it also lacks a little in contrast developed for the same time as the TMY.
    One sheet doesn't do much i know so will continue to expose on of each until i get a better and more accurate understanding of the differences.
    It does look like a new personal test is required to get the full benefit from this film.
    My experience is that the speed is the same. That is, I can't tell the difference in shadow density from prints made on the same piece of Azo of two different negatives, 1 TMY and 1 TMY-2, exposed at the same time and developed together in the same tray of developer. However, the TMY-2 negative showed much (at least 1 stop) greater highlight density than the TMY negative under my modus operandi.
