Tmax developer at 1:9greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread
People have mentioned that they are using tmax at 1:7 and 1:9. Can anyone using thse dilutions give their time and temp figures? I would like to try these dilutions myself and a good starting point would be welcome. Also, any comments on your results vs. 1:4 . Thanks!

I like to use T-Max developers more diluted than normal. It is easier to develop consistantly because the contrast-time changes are larger, in other words your development times are longer so a 30 second error has less effect than with stronger developers.
Development Times: T-Max 100 EI-80 T-Max 1:9 11 Min. @ 75 F T-Max 400 EI-320 T-Max 1:9 10.5 Min. @ 75 F
T-Max 100 EI-80 T-Max RS 1:9 10.5 Min. @ 75 F T-Max 400 EI-320 T-Max RS 1:9 10 Min. @ 75 F
Hope this helps!
