        I've tried D-76 with my Tmax and Tri-X films only to go back to Tmax developer. I just hope it stays around and I do see other companies making Tmax type developers. If you shoot Tmax use this developer. I use it at 75 degrees and it is perfect every time.

              I use T-Max Developer with Kodak T-Max 3200 and Ilford Delta 3200. It gives a nice combination of shadow detail, grain and sharpness with both of those high-speed films. With lower-speed films, I have occasionally used it mixed 1:9. I just hope that Kodak will be able to stay afloat and keep producing films and chemicals.

              T-max developer is very useful developer for T-max 100/400s. I can use it any time due to liquid, not powder such as D76. Just dilute it with water.

                  I use this product to process my Kodak TMY 120 black and white films. I prefer this type of developer to the other brands for this particular type of film; I find it to be very consistent and reliable. I would recommend this developer for someone using Kodak black and white roll films; I wouldn't recommend it for classroom use where students may come in with a variety of brands of films. Great Product!

                    I use this for developing B&W 35mm and 120 film (usually Kodak Tmax brand but I have used it for Ilford as well).

                    It's easy to use and gives consistent/even development through multiple rolls/development batches.

                    I'm considering ordering the larger size next time as I go through this fairly quickly.

                    I am using this on TMAX films, of course, but also on Kodak 2210 Surveillance Film (WL 400) which is also a T-grain film. Of course this product is proven, but I find its performance on the Surveillance film to be outstanding. I am using the temp/times recommended by Kodak.

                    So far I have used this developer for 35mm Ilford HP5 400 and Kodak Tmax 400. Surprisingly I've noticed more grain when used with tmax film. I like it overall, does the job but I haven't used any other developer to compare it to, thus the 4 star rating. I'm new to developing film at home and I initially read that tmax developer and tmax film were harder to handle and get consistent results with. I'm still learning the process and fine tuning my methods to get consistent results.

                            One thing I love about T-max developer is that it has a shelf that's just about forever. I've used it after 5 years -- still perfect. So, it's great for the casual B&W souper. Very easy to use -- no mixing powders, and the results are always great. Always delivers the full rated film speed, too, with the minimum amount of grain. I've used it with T-Max, Tri-X Ilford, Fomapan, etc. No problems. What's not to like?

                              I use this in my Photo class at Queens College with T-Max 100 and while it is not the conventional D-76, it does allow for very smooth grain, very nice contrast, and the grain is low. It does however, have a bit more aggression than D-76 with T-Max... but that's because it's designed for this film... I personally like to keep t-max with t-max so that there's less risk of making oopsy with non-native developers.
