Kodak - properly known as Kodak Eastman - was founded in America in 1888 and dominated the "Western" world of photography for the next 100 years, constantly in fierce rivalry with the Japanese Fuji. Similarly to Fuji the advent of digital photography at the turn of the century caused significant financial problems. A late attempt to win in the compact market was hit by the rise of mobile photography and bankruptcy followed in 2012. Fortunately the photography business has survived under the Kodak Alaris name - based in Hertfordshire, England - and they have delighted the analogue industry by pledging continued support for film production and the promise of bringing back old favourite emulsions.

TMAX is really great for any situation. If it were not for the difficulty developing it, I would definitely use it more. It gives great contrast and detail. Kodak's new age B&W does not dissapoint!
Having used Ilford products at 400 and 100 ASA, and Kodak at 400 ASA, with my "new" Rolleiflex model T, I was frankly dissapointed with the results. In the Ilford case I found the results to be lacking in contrast, and both the 400 ASA films showed very apparently grainyness (OK for prints I suppose, but I mainly view digital scans, on a large VHD monitor).
T-Max consistently produces the kind of results I wanted. Very fine grain, and excellent contrast, giving very "dramatic" shots, which is what I wanted for my return to B&W, with the Rolleiflex. They make for the perfect partnership.
The sample shot was taken at 1/125th at f11, processed and scanned by Spectrum Photo Laboratories, with no post-processing other than a top & bottom crop.
Used this in my ONDU Pinhole on the 6x12 setting. The amount of detail was superb with grain well within what I expected.
Developed in DD:X 1:9 for 11minutes in 20 degrees celsius. Great results. The detail is really sharp and contrast is great. Developing was quite easy, except for the extended period of fixing, due to T-Max's pink layer.
