There are endless combination of film vs developer, I suggest you go to www.agfa.com website and search for Agfapan (=Minopan) and go to www.kodak.com search fOR TMAX developer where is may provide some clue. If all these fails, there is a "Massive Development Chart" site, you can search with Yahoo. Hope this helps

Just a few weeks ago I got a few cartridges of Minopan 100, and found myself asking the same question. I guessed it to be similar to Ilford FP4, (maybe slightly slower) and developed as FP4.

I'm not at all dissapointed with the results, but could maybe use a /little tiny bit/ more contrast. I develop in Ilford Perceptol. Not tried the T.Max developer, so can't comment on that.

Since then I've been told that Minopan 100 is Agfapan 100 by another name. Is that on your chart?

Failing that, if you pretend the Minopan 100 is FP4, then I don't think you will be far wrong.

Good luck!

Mark, Minopan is Agfapan

Minopan 25 = Agfapan 25 Minopan 100 = Agfapan 100 Minopan 400 = Agfapan 400
