I use this film for its fine grain and good contrast range. It provides rich gradation even in somewhat bad lighting -- I shot a couple of frames of my friend's '66 Mustang to test out my new Rolleiflex 2.8F on a nasty, heavily overcast day, and the contrast was still phenomenal. I also like the 400ASA version due to its ability to be pushed to 1600ASA with a similar graininess to many 400 speed films (TMax 400 pushed to 1600 is about as grainy as normally processed Tri-X).

I use Tmax when I can't find other films I prefer. And that's one good thing going for it: you can usually find Tmax 100.
Personally don't like the look of this film. That is, I don't like the look of the prints or scans.

It has a bit of a learning curve to expose properly: not unlike many other films. It might take about three rolls to get used to - to fit your style.

It is easy to handle in the darkroom. If you use a reel, it is easy to thread.

I'd suggest you give this film a try, even though I don't like it. This is because I know a two people, whom I respect, that like it as a second favorite.

A Perfect Film

By Curt

Comments about Kodak TMX 120 T-Max 100 Professional Black & White Print Film (ISO-100):

Kodak has the sharpest film in this category. It has made me rethink using the slow speed films. It's that good. I'll be using it in large format soon.

    Shooting for the first time with medium format I couldn't be happier. If you haven't experienced being in a dark room and using a medium format camera you need to. The film is great, accurate and fine grain.

        I just love the look of TMax, even if it may be overkill in 120. You really need a tripod to get the most of this film, but even handheld it renders just beautifully, regardless of the loss of resolution.

        Comments about Kodak TMX 120 T-Max 100 Professional Black & White Print Film (ISO-100):

        I gave this as a gift to my best friend whose overseas, he's writing a book and wants to capture everything within a frame on his tlr. being a tlr owner myself, I figured this 100 ISO would be perfect for the tropical climate he gets to be in.
        I hope he uses all 5 of them I got. And they're cheap too (thank God).

            T-Max 100 is probably the finest grained black and white film I've ever used. I get a great tonal range, resolution, and sharpness with it; It also clearly captures the finest of details. Magnified it seems to be perfect, its grain appears arranged with a mechanical precision, as if someone placed each grain one at a time like mosaic tiles. I use T-Max liquid developer with this film and I find the two produce very consistent and reliable results.

              Have used Kodak film since 1962. I am an American camera collector who still like to shoot my old cameras from time to time. TMX gives me outstanding results in the darkroom.

It provides rich gradation even in somewhat bad lighting -- I shot a couple of frames of my friend's '66 Mustang to test out my new Rolleiflex 2.8F on a nasty, heavily overcast day, and the contrast was still phenomenal. I also like the 400ASA version due to its ability to be pushed to 1600ASA with a similar graininess to many 400 speed films (TMax 400 pushed to 1600 is about as grainy as normally processed Tri-X).

                Superb Film

                By John

                from Rialto, CA

                Verified Buyer

                Comments about Kodak TMX 120 T-Max 100 Professional Black & White Print Film (ISO-100):

                Kodak T-Max 100 film is my favorite black-and-white film. It is very sharp, fine-grained, smooth tones and it has a wide exposure latitude range. I prefer to use it at ISO 64 for the mid-point exposure and process it in Kodak D-76 developer at 1:1 dilution.

                I just like film. I like the way a fresh roll smells when you open the wrapped roll and the film's aroma wafts up as you load your camera. The smell reminds me of the good times past, but also it stimulates the anticipation of good times to come.

                I also appreciate the feeling of security when I slip the processed film into the sleeves, knowing the next time I open the shoebox there they will still be, no corrupted files in here. I can open a shoebox with my grandparent's photos inside, some are almost a century old…I can hold them or show them to the kids, they are real and tangible things to enjoy.

                So…do I dislike digital? No, of course not, digital is practical, immediate and inexpensive to shoot, so I use it a lot. But for me, digital does not have the delightful charm of film.

                  The tmax 100 black and white film does the job and does it well. The contrast is spot on with crisp blacks that really push your shots to the next level. The larger format allows for much clearer images which are worth the price and effort of the dark room.

                          It was great to see that the two boxes of 5 rolls of T Max 100 120, ISO 100 film I purchased were from the same batch. They were manufactured the same day. A test of the true ISO showed both exactly the same (98). Buy two at the local retaller here, and they are sometimes manufactored months apart, with significantly different true ISOs

                              Comments about Kodak TMX 120 T-Max 100 Professional Black & White Print Film (ISO-100):

                              I have been shooting more film of late, but 4x5 is too expensive right now.

                              Next best thing is medium format.

                              I typically use Ilford FP4 125 ISO, and Kodak Tri-X 400 ISO.

                              I've started using T-Max 100 ISO and am pleased with fine grain.

                              I have concerns with Kodak's future, which was one of the reasons for going to Ilford.

                                  This film is used for my sittings and weddings when they ask for b & w . Get very good comments from them when proofs come back from lab. Will buy this product again and again.

                                  Comments about Kodak TMX 120 T-Max 100 Professional Black & White Print Film (ISO-100):

                                  TMax 100 film has been my favorite for more than 20 years. I have mostly used it in 120 and 4x5 sheets, but it appears to be recently discontinued and/or hard to find. At least it is still available at B&H for now but not at Kodak. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars.
