Some first attempts with Kodak T-Max 400. I shot four rolls of about 25 frames last night at Cruising Grand. We got there a bit later in the evening so it got dark after about an hour. I continued to shoot at iso 400, box speed and gradually opened up to f/1.5 on the Voigtlander Nokton attached to my Leica M6. So it gets a bit challenging for focus wide open especially moving around like I do and shooting for opportunity. There are very few shots here that were taken with a lot of patience.
I also tried developing in HC-110 and Kodak Fix for the first time. I had to work out the formulas for mixing the developer and tried HC(E) at a 1:47 mix for 9:30 minutes. I have a 5 roll Patterson tank so mixed 1500ml of chemicals to develop all the rolls together at once. It saves some time but I'm not as comfortable processing five rolls at a time. I prefer the two roll Patterson tank with smaller amounts of chemicals.
But I'm reasonably happy with the results with the T-Max processed in HC-110. I do have some artifacts on some of my negatives. I think that's because I used the five reel tank. Next time I'll use my smaller developing tank and only do two reels at a time.
