    Sandy, would you say that Tmax 400 (120 roll film) works well with Pyrocat generally? I photograph indoors using natural light a lot and the reciprocity characteristics appeal to me.

    I was enthralled with Efke PL100 until I tried 400TMax. I burned through my first 50 sheet box of 4x5 in a week. (And I have a regular 9-5 job.) I sold the unopened box of Efke PL100 8 X 10 that I had to George Provost and gave away the rest. Now I, like Jorge, use nothing else. (Jorge, where do you get 12 x 20 TMY?) How sad that they don't make this film in larger sizes.

    I know it's expensive. With film, just like with everything else, you get what you pay for.

    Jim, unfortunatelly there is no 12x20 TMY, I use the photowarehouse film. If I could get TMY in 12x20 I certainly would. For the 8x10 I have found TMY to be the only film I need.

    In my opinion Tmax 400 120 roll film works very well with Pyrocat-HD. If you were to comare the results to Xtol I think you would find Xtol gives slightly finer grain but Pyrocat-HD is slightly sharper with EFS about the same. However, I think you would have to enlarge beyond 16X20 from 6X6, 6X7 or 6X9 negatives to see any obvious difference in results.

    How does TMY perform for scenes with SBRs 9 or greater (N-2, N-3)? With Pyrocat HD?

    Hi Sandy,

    Read your most recent post on the AZO list. Awesome info. I noticed you left out Tmax 100. Any reason not to included it?

    Thanks,

    John V.

    Thanks Johnny V. I have read that last bottom post of Sandy's previously and although it did mention that TMY and Pyrocat HD will work with scenes of SBRs > 8 I was wondering if any of those actual shots people have used TMY on did involve such a contraction and how did those actual prints turn out. In particular with AZO.

    TMAX 100 is a good film for AZO printing. Unfortunately it has a coating that filters out a great percentage of the UV light, increasing exposures by as much as three stops with UV senstive processes. I don't use the film for this reason and have not tested it as much as other films. Howver, it is a very good film for regular silver and AZO printing and performs very much like Ilford Delta 100.

    Francesco,

    TMAX 400 is a very good film for both expansion and contraction. Using the 1:1:100 dilution of Pyrocat-HD, assuming a negative DR 1.55 for AZO, I have been able to get very good contraction development. The following information is based on tube processing with gentle but constant agitation at 72 degrees F.

    N-3 7:00 minutes
    N-2 8:30 minutes
    N-1 11:30 minutes
    N 16:30 minutes

    For N or N + develoment I would recommend switching to to the 2:2:100 dilution for more reasobable develoment times.
