a follow up on XTOL postings regarding caked part A and general disappointment with TMax films. I purchased the 5 litre package with granular part A (finally) and am very pleased with this developer and TMY (TMax 400) and TMX (TMax 100) in 120 format. the grain appears to be half of what I found with TMax developers which surprises me, because it is rather dramatic. good news, and I am anxious to roll a few 4x5 sheets through the Jobo. <p> historically, I have had consistently poor results from a such a promising developer, that this is a breakthru. I recently posted a query in how to improve the TMax combinations of film/developer, and I believe I have discovered it.
