Re: [Rollei] Tmax and Rollei Planars

Bob, my findings with TMax 100 are that it doesn't
actually work that well with TMax dev - I struggle to
get anything like a full tonal range on the neg. I
understand that TMax dev is really designed as a
speed-enhancing dev, and indeed I love it with TMax
3200 and Delta 3200 - I also have found it the best
dev for F+Delta 400 for my taste. I personally have
found TMax 100 a difficult film to work with, but I
think I've found the answer - DiXactol. The results
I've seen from this combination are stunning, with a
magnificent tonal range  - a friend of mine swears by
it - so I'm going to give it a go. And I think that
this combination should indeed preserve the best from
the Planar, a lens that I personally think shines with
