    I will limit my review on Tri-X to information that will be useful to a photographer that develops their own film.

    Pros: Tri-X has been around for so long it evolved into the industry standard for what a 400 speed film should deliver. It is tried and true; great tonal range, consistent, and dependable.

    Cons: It has a stubborn magenta stain and is prone to very pronouced curling.

    Despite the two cons listed above I am still giving this film 5 stars. The reason is because the film's ability to capture an image is independent, and not compromised, by these two problems; magenta stains eventually come out with patience and a stack of books flattens any curl with enough time.

    I have worked in the darkroom on and off for over 20 years. I first used the 35-mm version of Tri-X when I started practicing photography, and fell in love with it. About a year ago, I got a medium format camera, and purchased many rolls of Trx-X 120. Sadly, many of the rolls are damaged. What seemed to be a light leak (I thought the camera had issues), it is a very uniform vertical band that in some rolls is light and in others dark. Very few rolls are fine. One of my fellow photographers also noticed issues with the TMAX-120.
    It seems like Kodak was not putting a lot of attention at quality at the end of their days of producing film.
    Please, do not purchase if you want to create great memories or if your work is serious.
    I gave it one star because I could not give it zero.

            It's Tri-X. Fantastic exposure latitude, reasonably controlled grain, that certain atmosphere that is Tri-X...

            Most of my experience with Tri-X is in 35mm--I just started shooting 645. The tonality, as expected, is even better on a bigger negative. And Kodak still sells pro-packs of the 120 film.

                      Let's just admit it the world of B/W photography is built on Tri-X, it is the bedrock. Lock and load this into you MF, pull out the Gossen, set, and fire away; you cannot fail to take amazing photographs. Develop the negs yourself and feel the joy of what you have created.

                        By far, my most shot film. When I'm looking to create some black and white photos, it's almost a guarantee that it'll be Tri-X. Not grain free, but also, not distracting. I love the contrast of this film.

                          Kodak tri-x 400 is my main man. I shoot this in the studio, I shoot this on location, I shoot this in my holga, on vacation and with any kind of light. This film has saved my butt countless times. I've pushed it with no problems and excellent results. I've been known to botch a photo or two and have been able to pull a lot out of this film post process. Contrast is wonderful as is the grain. If I Had to pick only one film to use for the rest of my life this would be it.

                            What's there to say? Good ol Tri-X always delivers, one of the most versitile, high quality films out there. In 120 the grain just vanishes.

                              Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 120 Black & White Print Film (ISO-400):

                              I have found this film to be a bit more contrasty than Ilford HP-5. It's great for general street photography. Recently, I've started using this for long exposures and it seems to work ok, however I think any fault here was my own and not the film's because I didn't calculate the reciprocity failure rate for this film. I would recommend this film if you like contrasty photos.

                                Lots of shadow detail, very flexible film can push 2 stops with good results
