If you think Tmax 100 or 400 is nice in TMax developer, try it in D-76
at 1:1 dilution. Pretty amazing tonalities without dense highlights.
Also, you can combine both emulsions in the same tank and the processing
time is the same. 

I'm just beginning to experiment with Unicolor's PressMax and I like the
results so far. However, it is so hard to find (have to mailorder it
from B&H) and the short developing times concern me.  Hope this helps.
