They could have been just as forgiving of exposure sloppiness (also known as errors) as Tri-X. But Kodak purposely made those films more sensitive - at the request of John Sexton and other professionals who wanted more control than Tri-X allows with less variation in time, temp. and agitation - so that they would be more flexible. It takes careful processing - and testing for sure - to get the most out of TMax films. A notable exception here is the new C-41 TCN 400 TMax film, which is quite forgiving. Though I got it to block up highlights at a wedding this weekend (I was just shooting for fun by the way). You can't just treat most TMax films like Tri-X and get good, consistent results. - -- Eric Welch St. Joseph, MO http://www.ponyexpress.net/~ewelch Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
