I used this in a Nikon F5 with a 50 1.8 at the birth of my first child. There very little available light to work with. This is the first film I have ever pushed but I am very pleased with the results. Even when this film is pushed to 1600 (2 stops) it has less grain than some cheap 800 speed films.

A classic

By Filmpursit

from Houston

Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 400 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

This is a classic 400 speed black and white film from Kodak. It's reputation precedes it.

I used to dislike the grain of this film always shooting low speed alternatives (ISO 125), I wanted to try something different, do some low light film and I needed something faster thus I started pushing my TMAX film two stops two 1600 and just embrace the grain. Amazing results, predictable, consistent. A timeless Kodak classic film.

    Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 400 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

    I have decided to dust off some of my film cameras and use them for the first time in many years. Twenty years ago I used Kodak's Tri-X and T-Max.I'm guessing it won't be available much longer.

      Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 400 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures):

      This film has a fantastic rendering of tone, contrast, and sharpness. In low light, it's a bit grainy, but I am an art student, so this is something I usually try to achieve in my images. Depending on your subject though, the graininess may be unwanted.

                Hand-develop at home, shot on a Nikon F100. Wide tonal range and a surprisingly tight grain for a 400-speed film. No complaints aside from unpredictable price fluctuations - probably not good as a casual B&W film as a result. I can't comment on consistency as my development process and shooting technique adds a lot of variables.

                  So far my prints have turned out well, and I will be purchasing another roll soon.

                    Teaching a basics photography class, and still love the "new" TMAX T-grained film! Hard to find in stores, I know I can count on B&H keeping the darkroom stocked.

                              I used this in a Nikon F5 with a 50 1.8 at the birth of my first child. There very little available light to work with. This is the first film I have ever pushed but I am very pleased with the results. Even when this film is pushed to 1600 (2 stops) it has less grain than some cheap 800 speed films.
