        Comments about Kodak TX 620 Tri-X Pan Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

        I shot a roll with my Argus Super 75. Despite all the images being blurry (probably a lens defect) the color and tonal range seemed good. I was impressed with the film's ability to render highlight and shadow.

        Note that the supplied 620 spool is plastic and not metal.

          Comments about Kodak TX 620 Tri-X Pan Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

          I've been using the Tri-X on and off for a few years now and it is still my film of choice for shooting black and white. You get that great grain-textured feel every time!

          Great film to use in my Brownie Reflex 20. Beautiful quality photos with little fuss.

          The Brownie uses a 620 film, which is actually 120 film on different sized spool. B&H has done a wonderful job of keeping a good product in mint condition.

          Comments about Kodak TX 620 Tri-X Pan Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

          I just found an old Kodak Tourist 620 Camera that had been sitting in my closet for years, only to realize that as great as this camera is, I might not be able to find film for it. Well lucky for me, B&H is not too far from me, and when I went there to see if they had 620 film they sure did. The fact that 120 & 620 are the same size helps, and the 620 they sell is just actually 120 film respooled onto a 620 core. I shot 2 rolls of TriX 620 and it came out great. Thanks to B&H, this old camera can now be used again and again.

            It's Tri-X B&W film, one of the greatest films of all time. Used it in my dad's old Kodak camera and the negs were great - good tonal range, sharp focus, medium grain.

                So excited to find a place that still carries 620 film so I dont have to reroll 120 to use with my brownie camera. Only downside is the steep price.

                    This was my first experience with Tri-X, although I have used other B&W films. I used it in an old Kodak Brownie that belonged to my dad when he was young. There's not much in the way of exposure control on that camera, so I was a little suppressed to see the negatives come out in such great condition. This is fairly expensive film so I won't be using it often, but it works great!

                                I use this film in an old 620 Kodak Vollenda camera that used to belong to my grandfather during WWII and I love being able to take pictures with the camera he used in France during that time period.
                                The film and camera work good for considering the age of the camera, landscape and portrait both come out well.

                                      Comments about Kodak TX 620 Tri-X Pan Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

                                      Theres really nothing i could say about Tri-X that hasn't been said. Its a great versatile black and white film with good latitude and a medium to high level of grain. In this size though, its almost negligible.

                                      The real great hing about this one though is that its 620!!! Thats right you can get out your old 620 camera and shoot in it with this. I wouldn't suggest bulking up on dozens of rolls of this as its fairly expensive, but go ahead and get two rolls and use them to re-spool rolls of 120 onto the reels. Its less hassle than searching certain auction sites for reels, and you get some film with it.

                                        Comments about Kodak TX 620 Tri-X Pan Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

                                        I got this film to test out this old camera my mom had sitting on the shelf. The camera, a Jiffy Kodak Series II 620, is so basic, all it really has is a lever for the shutter and a couple of reflective viewfinders.

                                        Using ISO 400, This film is very forgiving when shot outside during the day in full light and slight shade. Nice tonal range very smooth with very minimal film grain.

                                        I had them printed with a matte finish and they look great.

                                          I have two Kodak Monitor six-20's and have been re-spooling my film from 120 to 620 for years. I never thought to see over-the-counter 620 film again. Here it is! And not some obscure eastern European film, but the world's best film - TriX! Amazing! Of course, there should be some charge for re-spooling. Takes me about 10 mins/roll. [...]

                                            Comments about Kodak TX 620 Tri-X Pan Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

                                            When I was young I asked a friend what camera to buy.He told me,I remember,"don't ask about cameras,ask about films".
                                            So,I then stayed with my folding KODAK Junior I and tried different kind of films,mostly,the famous KODAK Tri-X of 60's and the early 70's.

                                            The years passed,I grew older and older and 620 films bit by bit started to fade out till they completely vanished from market.The era of 35mm and 120 had come.

                                            Few months ago,for my good luck,a friend adviced me from where I could find what I was looking for years: A 620 film for my KODAK Junior.And thus, the past was revitalized with Tri-X Pan from BH.

                                            That film was specifically made for shadowed (dull,hazy or heavy overcast)images.On the contrary,I used it in full daylight on my folding KODAK which has a fixed aperture (f/16 or 22) and a fixed shutter speed (1/60).
                                            I was really amazed from the results.No burned out areas,no dark shadows,but an equal tonal range.And of course,no under or over development (...).A never treat that way my negatives.Of course,I always take care the way that my subject is lighted and try to have equal quantities of light and shadow,in the frame.

                                            Literaly,for those medium format film lovers,who do not have expensive equipments,I would say in a different way the wise words of my friend: If you cannot afford buying expensive cameras,buy affordable films like the Tri-X Pan.You will see that simple things are sometimes much better from complicated and multifunctional camera gears.
