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.

Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

So much to love about this film. I was a die hard Ilford man up until I tested the tonality of Kodak TriX series. It gives just the right bit of contrast When shooting in my ideal conditions: overcast and window light.

Tri-X a bullet-proof B&W film stock

By Eric

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

call me crazy but I still shoot film. Tri-X is a time honored emulsion that delivers consistent results. For me shooting medium format film still delivers a certain look while 35mm film to me is hard to justify unless you have Leica glass. But I shoot Tri-X, scan and print digitally while still retaining right and capacity for darkroom prints. I would further recommend a contact sheet of your negs regardless of how you print just to have a good baseline point of departure.

Familiar old friend with better markings and tough tape

Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

40 years since my last previous roll, it's the same good stuff. No box; no big deal. Plain gray-black backing paper is less elegant but better labeled at both ends. The initial seal was almost too tough for my thumbnail. The final stickum seal no longer tastes bad.

Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

I have been using Kodak Tri-X since I started making photos with any serious intent in 1977. I have tried others over the years, from super fine grain slow films, to other manufacturers 400 film, to the latest greatest, t-grain films that came along and the path always leads me back to Tri-x. A beautiful look, grain, but not objectionable, esp. in medium format of larger. It has a distinctive and beautiful look. And has a great altitude, which is handy when photographing on the run w/o time to make an exposure reading but knowing the film so well, my guess is close enough. Best film ever and still!

Exceptional

By Nick

Verified Buyer

Comments about Kodak Professional Tri-X 400 Black and White Negative Film (120 Roll Film):

I don't think there's a more popular film out there. This is a wonderful product. Tri-x is incredibly versatile, and you can use it for just about everything. Because there's so much surface area on a medium format negative, and because the negative doesn't need to be enlarged as much to produce a print, the grain remains very fine even on large prints. It may be a reach, but I'd say an enlargement from a medium format Tri-X negative gives the same fine grain appearance as an enlargement of the same size from a 35mm T-Max 400 negative while retaining the beautiful contrast of Tri-X.
