Product Highlights
  • Panchromatic B&W Negative Film
  • ISO 100/21° in Standard Process
  • Very Fine Grain, T-GRAIN Emulsion
  • High Sharpness and Resolving Power
  • Wide Exposure Latitude and Tonal Range
  • Can Be Processed in Reversal Chemistry

Kodak's Professional T-Max 100 is a medium-speed panchromatic black and white negative film characterized by an extremely fine grain structure along with high sharpness and resolving power. By utilizing a T-GRAIN emulsion, the grain pattern resembles a patterned, tabular form that maintains effective film speed while reducing the appearance of grain during enlarging or scanning. This film has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 100/21° and also features a wide exposure latitude, broad tonal range, and responds well to push development and zone system development changes.

In addition to processing as a negative in standard black and white chemistry, T-Max 100 is also suitable for reversal processing using the T-Max 100 Direct Positive Film Developing Outfit for creating copy and duplicate work.

This item is one 36-exposure roll of 35mm film.

Film Type Panchromatic black and white negative film
Film Format 35 mm (36 exposures)
Sensitivity ISO 100/21°
Process Standard black and white chemistry
Reversal process can be used for transparencies
Base Not specified by manufacturer

I photograph people, and nothing is quite as beautiful as the way t-max films capture people. The grain is so tight, it is never a distraction form the subject. I am even able to hand hold with it at less than a 60th of a second. I highly recommend Kodak t-max films!

I've been using Ilford FP4+, and I've used Kodak Plus-X in the past, so I had my benchmark when I bought a dozen rolls of T-Max 100.
My surprise was the lack of density in the first rolls I developed. I followed Kodak's guidelines, but the negatives were thin and had a very blah tonal range. When printing, I had to stop down and use a higher contrast filter.
The grain is very nice, and after I make the necessary adjustments I get lovely prints. But it doesn't behave quite like other film.

    I've used Tmax in all my darkroom classes at university. It's reliable, inexpensive, and shows great contrast.

    Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

    This film is a gem. Luscious blacks and creamy whites make it perfect for any situation where light isn't an issue. The only drawback is the film speed, which makes it difficult to use for most action shots and anything in low light.

      Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

      I'm using this for Yearbook Club at my school, and it has consistently good results. It is scanned at my local film store, and they do a swell job. I'd recommend it for outdoor shots mostly, as I use a B&W filter, which reduces light.

            Darkroom print film gives more value to the art in photography. With the "tedious" process being much lengthier it brings more excitement to use kodak film to bring the photos to print vs instantaneously to the screen.

                  This is my favorite black and white film. It works great in a wide range of lighting conditions and it can be pushed further than other films I've tried. Very smooth, very good contrast, and very good detail.

                    Once in a while TRI-X 400 is just too fast - that's when I use TMAX 100. It's also very useful if I want to shoot in outdoor light at wider f/stops. Overall it's a great black and white film - but it lacks the contrast and mystery of TRI-X. Kodak makes a great film.

                        Probably one of the sharpest and finest grain 100 ISO B&W film out there. If you look for grainy look this is not the film for you. But if you are looking for a fine grain B&W film with great tonality this is the one.

                                I photograph people, and nothing is quite as beautiful as the way t-max films capture people. The grain is so tight, it is never a distraction form the subject. I am even able to hand hold with it at less than a 60th of a second. I highly recommend Kodak t-max films!

                                Sharp and nearly grainless!

                                Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

                                This has to be the finest grain film available today. It gives smooth tones, great tonal separation in the shadows, and good contrast. The best 100iso film you can buy in my opinion.

                                    I used the product for a black and white photography class at my university and it was perfect for the basic printing we are doing in class.

                                      With the loss of Plus-X Pan, T-Max 100 is the remaining Kodak black-and-white film in the moderate speed range that is so suitable for older cameras (those without very high shutter speeds). It's a wonderful film, with greater linearity in the darks than Plus-X had.
