It's Kodak Tmax, what do you expect?

By Superclif

Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

Obviously it's fantastic film. It's beautiful to shoot, and pushes easily. It's probably the best 100 speed BW film on the market. I especially love seeing it come out of the tank, a very clear base unlike Tri-X. Super fine grain, as advertised. Almost undetectable grain when darkroom printing at 11x14. Oh, and when buying a 100' roll it's about 3.50 a roll.

Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

Seems that when 35 mm photography edged out 2 1/4 an 4X5 for press work, the speeds of film were slower. I find that with higher speeds my cameras and lenses tend to be stopped down. I am trying to open up my lens. Also I like the ability to use slower shutter speeds etc... One example of this theory of slower films has to do with the speeds for flash sync. A leica is synced at 50th of a second. A Nikon at 125th. This speed with 400 speed film would require an f64 or higher or a neutral density filter. 100 speed can work at 50th of a second at f16 with out too much over exposure. Colorado is too bright for 400 speed film, or rather I have to dumb down to 100 speed film here. On the eastern plains where I am located, there is no golden hour. After the sun goes down, the golden five minutes, switching to tri-x pushed to 1000+ is required. 400 still has it's place. It requires using three cameras.

Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

For those photographers that continue to use film, this is one of the best great fine grain black and white films available. Buying the film in bulk is a great savings over the cost of buying the individual rolls. The bulk film loader and individual cassettes are readily available and once you have them, the cost is even more attractive.

    I have been conducting business with B&H for many years. I have been pleased with every transaction and product. I like the tmax 100 film because of the fine grain and dependable value range in my fine art prints. I have never had an issue with this film.

        Comments about Kodak Professional T-Max 100 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 100' Roll):

        Shooting with my vintage cameras seems to naturally lead me to a medium-speed, more traditional film. I use lenses that emphasize clarity & crispness, and T-Max 100 lets me take full advantage of those qualities. Buying in bulk rolls allows me to load my own canisters for maximum versatility and cost-effectiveness. And T-Max is easy to develop with a minimum of difficulty and great, sharp, "contrasty" results.
