Like Bob says, but I used Rodinal 1:50 on this film, which I previously didn't like because of excessive contrast. This combo (1:100 would do it as well) gave really nice results, and tamed that contrast.
Not a film that I normally use, but like you, I acquired a lot of slightly out of date TMax 100 and decided to experiment on it. The diluted Rodinal seemed the best from the developers that I tried....D76 1:1, XTol 1:1 and Pyrocat HD.
I have some old Kodak T-max 100 film which expired in 2001 but has always been in the freezer. I want to shoot a test roll, what developer do I have to use to develop this film. Can I use regular Rodinal or Diafine? Sorry if I'm ignorant but I never used T-Max 100 before.
It depends on the lighting conditions and your developer. I use Edwal 12 developer, which is available from the Photographer's Formulary as a kit.
With flat lighting I rate it at box speed and develop normally. In scenes with lots of contrast I overexpose, (rate the film at 50 or 25) and develop for a shorter amount of time.
With other developers you may not be able to rate it at box speed when you develop normally.
Or, your personal preference may be that you don't want full shadow detail, and then you might be able to rate it at EI 200 and adjust your development accordingly.
There are many ways to do it. Only you can tell what's going to work for you.
