Finally, in 2007, I found a combination of exposure below 100 and development in PMK that produced something I really want to be able to recreate and keep using, and hopefully even improve on. For me, it has been a long and I would also say somewhat expensive road, but worth it, and I would guess that there is still more that can be obtained with this film, if I keep improving my methods. My luck would be that now that I havve decided this is a favorite, they will discontinue it.
    Couldn't agree more. I rate it at ISO 80/dev. in PMK pyro. I do hope Kodak don't discontinue Readyloads, so convienient and such clean negatives.

    ISO100 is just great in Ilford DD-X. in other developers you lose speed

    I couldn't agree more with the necessity for maintaining strict temperature and timing controls with this film. Small variations do have a greater effect upon it, and TMY for that matter, than on more conventional films. But once you get that under control, the film is a real winner. For those times when you want a film with as close to no grain as possible, TMX is the one. I rate it at box speed and develop in XTOL 1+1. Nice stuff.

    I've gotten great results with TMAX100 sheets (tray development, I know I'm low budget here :P ) with XTOL and DDX.
