Kodak T-Max 400 overview

  • 1Description

Kodak's Professional T-Max 400 is a high-speed panchromatic black and white negative film featuring a unique T-GRAIN emulsion to provide a very fine grain structure with a high degree of sharpness and edge detail. It has a nominal sensitivity of ISO 400/27° along with a wide exposure latitude for rating the film up to EI 1600 and push developing. Its versatility benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and with moving subjects, and its fine grain profile, broad tonal range, and high resolving power benefit scanning and enlarging applications. Additionally, the film is well-suited to scientific and biomedical work, especially when fluorescence in photography is required.

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

Kodak T-Max 400 reviews

Professional T-Max 400 Black and White Negative Film (35mm Roll Film, 36 Exposures) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 272.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from A once great film troubled by cost savings This once-great virtually grain-less film appears to have succumbed to cost savings at Kodak-Alaris. The base is thinner and scratches more easily, the canisters are covered in fine thin fibers from the felt gate and (re)winding has become stiff and gritty. It feels and sounds as if there is particulate matter inside of the canister. The above often leads to scratched frames which makes the film hard to print/scan. Potentially ruining your once-in-a-lifetime shot. If the problems don't make an appearance the film is still one of the best 400 speed black and white films with it's rich tonal range, soft- pleasingly structured grain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go-To Black and White Film Tmax is my favorite black and white film. It is beautiful and versatile. It responds to pushing well, particularly when you ignore Kodak's recommendations and develop with a one-stop push when shooting at 800 ISO. Tmax scans well, and its fine grain makes it easy to sharpen the images while post-processing. With trix, my results are often harsh and I tend to lose a lot of detail in shadows. Tmax instead maintains a softness as well as good contrast that makes it particularly useful when working in low-light situations. Overall, a beautiful film with fantastic latitude.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great film for pushing! 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some We may not be in the glory days of black and white film photography, but some of the great films are still around. Back in the '60s, when we were shooting available light, it was Tri-X or nothing. Sure, there was grain, but that was part of the charm, or so we thought at the time. Gradation and tonal scale were OK, but if you really wanted smooth, you went with something slower. Fast-forward a few decades. For the last 15 years I've been teaching college photography classes, including an introductory black and white film class. Almost as soon as it became available, we settled on T-Max 400 as the film of choice for our students to use, and every time someone comes in with some other film, we just get more convinced that TMY should be it. In side-by-side comparisons, there just doesn't seem to be any better choice for 400 ISO film. Over the years, we have standardized on D-76 diluted 1:1, at 70 deg F, for 11 minutes, with one inversion of the tank every 30 seconds. The only times we have had issues with grain or contrast have been when students get distracted and wander off the time or temperature. A minute of extra development, or 3 deg higher temperature will begin to yield more grain, and similar amounts under will start to kill the contrast. The lower contrast can generally be compensated in printing; the greater grain is pretty much there to stay. But when everything is right down the middle, the consistency and quality of images done with T-Max 400, in my opinion, can't be beat. When I'm teaching students the art and science of black and white film, one thing I emphasize is controlling the variables so you can focus on getting exactly the image you want, in response to your inner vision. When we've been doing our own work for a long time, we tend to develop subliminal compensation mechanisms to get what we want--why not just go for high quality and absolute consistency, which is what I find I get with Kodak T-Max 400.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 400 ISO B&W film When is come to B&W films I'm mainly a Kodak guy. Beside Tri-X of which I love. I go with T-Max 400 when I want finer grain or when I want to push and still get good shadow detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good product A very good film. Reliable. Because I don't like using flash, this film is good for me. This photo taken at night at windows.No flash.Pushed to 1600.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Benchmark If you're reading this, probably you're new to film photography and looking which film to buy. Certainly, IMHO, the 400 TMax is a sure bet. You can try other films later and compare results and then decide which suits best to your taste, but you can go wrong with this. The thing I like the most of the 400 TMax is that, developed appropriately, you will get pretty much the same fine grain you usually get from a normal 100 ISO film, but you also get those critical two steps more to play with your speed shutter and/or diaphragm aperture.
