          Comments about Kodak TMX (#4052) 4x5" 50 Sheets T-Max 100 B&W Print Film (ISO-100):

          Just a wonderful film...tight grain, exposes well. I'm fairly new to the 4x5 format, so I haven't used many different films, but T-Max is a film I think works best printing in the darkroom. The blacks are very rich, so inkjet printing is definitely possible, but I'd tear through ink doing it. Just an observation I've made. All in all, it is a great film for large format work.

            Comments about Kodak TMX (#4052) 4x5" 50 Sheets T-Max 100 B&W Print Film (ISO-100):

            I use this film with a Calumet / Cambo 4x5 view camera. The results obtained with T-Max 100 were amazing. The grain is virtually non-existent. Even using a micro site focusing scope with the enlarger, I could barely make out the grain for focusing. The images produced in the darkroom and from scanning the negatives were so sharp, I had to wear gloves to hold them! ;-) Processing the film is easy and forgiving. I used to use Tri-X but now T-Max 100 is my favorite.

                  I've been using Kodak's TMX for 15 years, and have never felt the need to try anything else. Although I transitioned to digital a few years ago, I still stick with using TMX for very high-res quality of the scans that are produced from the film; I tend to print large 30x30" prints on an Epson. I can only hope that TMX will continue to be around for years to come.

                      I use TMX for landscape photography in 4x5 and 6x7 format. Excellent quality film with outstanding reciprocity characteristics. Be aware that this film requires fresh fixer and hypo clear, or a magenta tint may result.

                          I am very happy that Kodak chose to continue makling T-Max 100 in 4x5in sheets. It is a very sharp medium ISO film.

                                  Small grain, easy to use with zone-system. I develope it with tetenal emofin and it gives very fine tonal grades.

                                      I've always relied on T-MAX film by Kodak and although being just about completely digital, it's always nice to be able to rely on the consistency of this product. I haven't used my 4x5 in about 10 years but it was just like riding a bicycle, it all came back to me. As far as the T-MAX goes, the 100-ISO tight grain structure always make for crisp, detailed images that look flawless.

                                        This is the best film for large format architectural photography. One of the only ones accepted by the National Park Service HABS/HAER/HALS program for its archival stability.

                                                  This is incredibly sharp and accurate film. It has great latitude and tones. I shoot it almost exclusively when doing any b&w 4x5 work. It develops nice and scans well.

                                                    I've used this emulsion since the 80's in every format possible. It's my default film when I need something to work the first time. Fine grain, easy handling, and a snappy yellow box to download film into.

                                                      I use both T-Max 100 and Tri-X 320 4x5 film. Both are fantastic, and are quite different. T-Max 100 provides incredible image quality, super smooth tone gradations, and looks great when pushed to ISO 400. There is not much to say, other than this is my go-to film for 4x5, and 120, and 35mm. I love it!
