I like this film and its Ilford brother delta 100. Although I find that delta renders more nuances, I prefer Tmax. What developer did you use?

Hi lucca,
- perceptol 3:1 @ 24 degrees for 13 min
The negative had more mid-tones but the scanner seems to have lost them

Very nice - rich tones and strong micro contrast. What was it scanned with?

Hmm, seems to have plenty good detail for prints. I don't really like the colours that come from the Plusteks or many of the other compact scanners, but it looks to be a good choice for B&W. Even I had good 8x10 results from flatbed scanners (Canoscan 8800f) with TMAX that were comparable to my El-Nikkor Darkroom prints, although the scanner did smooth out all of the grain (or really it just didn't resolve it). I'm hoping for the industry (even Kodak) to respond with new scanners (rather than cameras! who would have thought...), but in the meantime it's reasonable to pay $13 for high resolution scans + development on minilabs, and I don't shoot that often anyway.
