WHAT CAROL McLAUGHLIN, TECH REP FOR EASTMAN KODAK, HAS TO SAY ON UNDERSTANDING TMAX FILMS

* They have slightly less blue sensitivity than current
films developed to have the sensitivity of the human eye,
therefore, blues may be recorded slightly darker.

* The film speed between daylight and tungsten will not vary.

* Reciprocity is greatly improved.

* The emulsion particles have been restructured allowing for
an improvement in sharpness with less grain.

PROCESSING TIPS

* Best results are at 73 degrees or slightly higher.

* These films react more rapidly to development changes than
others. A 15 degree change corresponds to a 30 degree change
with other films.

* The pink color cast in the negative is harmless. It is a
residual sensitizing dye that can be removed with rapid fix or
increased agitation in the fix. It will not affect printing or
archival qualities.

* D-76 produces slightly less grain.

* TMAX DEVELOPER produces better shadow detail.

* Can push process with excellent results in TMAX DEVELOPER.

* TMAX REVERSAL KIT is available for TMAX 100 and TECH PAN
films.

* If your processing is producing a flat negative, try
processing at 73 degrees. AGITATION is also very important--you
may need to agitate a little more than with other films.
