Kodak's Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film is a classic high-speed panchromatic film designed for a wide array of shooting conditions. Characterized by its fine grain quality, notable edge sharpness, and high resolving power, Tri-X 400 also exhibits a wide exposure latitude with consistent tonality. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° when developed in standard black and white chemistry, and responds well to push processing. As an all-around, highly versatile film, Tri-X 400 is a standard choice for photographing in difficult lighting conditions as well as when working with subjects requiring good depth of field or for faster shutter speeds.

This item is one 24-exposure roll of 35mm film.

I'm really biased in favour of Tri-X since I've used this film for around 35 years. The film has been updated continuously over that time, but the shooting attributes have remained the same.

With Tri-X, you get an extremely large amount of latitude during both exposure and development. I don't believe any other film comes close. I know a few other photographers that hate Tri-X, but even these people will concede this one point.

I use day-to-day for general purpose photography. I prefer the 24 exposure rolls, since I adjust my camera settings for specific conditions. I push and pull the film all the time, and also use EV corrections, all to meet either lighting conditions, or effect desired.

The film can be extremely grainy. I use experience to either tone-down, or magnify the grain.

If you are new to black and white photography, you will probably want to give Tri-X a try, even if you do not like film grain. The main reason I say this is because the film is very forgiving to underexposure particularly, but also overexposure. Also, it is easy to handle in the darkroom, and is forgiving on that end as well. Can be processed with most any developer available.

The is just as stated by Kodak, a good general purpose film. The depth of field is as good as other films, even 100 speeds. Grain is well within acceptable ranges. I prefer 100 speed or lower, but this film works well in most situations.

    Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

    I recently purchased an old Canon Rebel G for the purpose of getting back into film photography. The Tri-X Black and White was perfect for my needs, reminding me of the beauty of film including the grain. It also scans very well.

    Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 24 Exposures):

    I initially feared this film because I couldn't get it to look right, but I learned through trial and error that if you can only bring one film, this is it. Looks great at ISO 200 in bright light, and pushes to 3200 and still looks great. What more can you ask?

          I have used Tri-X film for over 40 years. I can shoot outside and inside without problem.
          This film has great grain which I love, especially when printing large photographs.
          I use D-76 1:1 for developing this film. I hope this film will be available for a long time.

            I had to buy this film for my photography class in school, and it is the hardest thing to find in the world because big surprise - not a lot of people use film anymore. But I received exactly what I ordered at exactly the time this company said it would arrive. The price was reasonable and I am perfectly satisfied.

                      I used this film for my college photograpy class. Film is moderately easy to develop and doesn't take as long as other films I have used. Images were out door and turned out clean precise and great! I used it to take picture of water on a very bright sunny day and it did not effect the quality if the film. I'm already low on this film and will be ordering more of them within the week.

                        Shot some 400 Tri-x while on the yearbook staff my senior year in high school-class of 1981. I remember how you could easily see the grain. I shot a roll this summer after playing around with other brands the last few years. I developed it 1:2 in D76 and had a lab do the prints; and was blown away!!!! Excellent contrast, sharp details, and where's the grain? This is now my choice for B/W film!!!!

                        I used this film when first learning to develop photos. It is great for beginners; it's easy to use and I even got a few extra shots out of it. It developed very clear, and made it very easy to develop great photos. I would recommend using this film when starting out especially, but it's great for anyone.
