TMAX one shot or not! : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

Just wondering if TMAX developer is one shot, mixed 1-4 (not the part a+b mix) just regular TMAX.

I bought a quart for lack of the Illifor Chemistry in our town to try re: the question I posted earlier about Ilford 3200 development. I have looked on the bottle but I can not fin anyplace that states one way or the other as to one time vs. multiple use.

Anyone know?

Thanks, Jeff Riehl

Kodak publishes increase development times for sucessive rolls processed in TMax. So, it is not considered a one-shot developer. However, I never store mixed/used TMax and tend to use it single shot in my work. I feel that I get more consistent results and less chance for error this way.

For consistency, one shot. For economy, up to three shots.
