    As i said in my previous post, one sheet of each the new and the old TMY is hardly a test and i am hopefull that i made a mistake rather than having a new 120SW being temperamental. Time will tell as new posts from others experiences will come in.
    I also want to thank Sandy for the TMY test in the VC.

    Hi Alex,

    To this point I have not developed the new TMY-2 film in Pyrocat with minimal agitation. If you do any testing, please report your results.

    It was over 70F and sunny here in South Carolina yesterday, but today we have big storms and lots of rain.

I don't think he realised just how good his Pyrocat developer is.

    He's given us more than enough information to be able to almost seamlessly move from the old to new Tmax 400, so thank you Sandy.

    Hi Ian,

    Thanks for your comments. I am going to start a new thread about the subjet of C-41 monochrome versus regular B&W films based on the results of my trip to China and subsequent work.

    Yes I realised but felt people were fishing for details of what you'd written, I've just subscribed to VC so I can read it.

    Harvey's 777.

    I did six rolls of 120 film and compared them to six rolls of TMY shot of the same subjects and developed in the same batch of developer. I printed them together.

    So far I've developed six sheets of TMax 4x5, 3 of TMY and 3 of TMY-2 all exposed and developed together. I haven't printed the sheet film yet, but I can see greater highlight density on the negative.

    The results are the same. Consistently. I don't know what good that is to anyone, though, as Harvey's is a pretty arcane developer. I don't think there are very many people using it.

    One thing's for sure: I'm sold on this new film. For me it represents a dramatic improvement.

    Thanks Jim, good to know. I am slowly getting into Harvey's 777 and will try to make my next comparison with Harvey's later this week.

    C6: Just to add to your information....very early results comparing two negatives ( 4x5 ) similarly exposed and developed together in the Jobo expert tank at 75 degrees using DDX 1:9 show similar results to what you have thus far noted...highlights have more density when examined on the light table, shadows look about the same. Impossible to comments on the sharpness yet. More negatives in the works along with some prints. Will take about a week or so. However, if the highlights consistently appear more dense then the "old" Tmax 400 then I suppose some BTZS testing might be in the works....I sure hope not. I guess I can try to archive some of the old film for a while....

    I'm also planning to compare the two films, simlarly exposed, developed together in Rollo Pyro with the same parameters. Will also give details subsequently.
