    TMax-100 in Rodinal 1:100 is one of my favorite combos. (FWIW)!!

    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    Not a film that I normally use, but like you, I acquired a lot of slightly out of date TMax 100 and decided to experiment on it.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.

    You may find this interesting about T-Max films.

    Thanks to all. this is a tremendous help. I will surely do some tests and report back.

    By the way; how would you rate it? At 100 iso?

    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.
