Kodak Tri-X Pan 400 Black and White Film

Kodak Tri-X Pan 400 Black and White Film 


Kodak Tri-X Pan Film is a high-speed (ISO 400/27°) panchromatic film that is a good choice for photographing dimly lighted subjects or fast action, for photographing subjects that require good depth of field and fast shutter speeds, and for extending the distance range for flash pictures. TRI-X Pan Film (TX) is available in 120 and 135 sizes and 35 and 70 mm long rolls. You can retouch the 120-size film on the emulsion side. TRI-X Pan Film is recommended for push-processing applications.

Easy to find
Sharp contrast
Easy to develop
Timeless look and feel


Sometimes too much contrast
Can be pricier than other films

I really like Tri-X for certain shots but it has its limitations. If you're looking for lots of contrast and grain then this is the film for you. However, if you are looking for a smooth finish and gradual tones, then you might want to try T-Max or another film. Of course some people will say that they can get smooth and gradual tones out of it, but film is only one piece of the puzzle. Paper, filters, and chemistry all play an important role in how tones work in a photo. I generally use Arista RC paper, D-76 film developer, and Dektol paper developer. This is not my primary film, but will use it when the situation calls for it, or if its the only film I can find, since it can still be bought at some drug stores. I say use it, but know when to use it.
