A truly legendary film, Kodak Tri-X 400 was first introduced in 1940 in sheet film — meaning it is approaching its 80th birthday! Key to its longevity has been its flexibility. Photographers can take Kodak Tri-X 400 film into a variety of lighting situations and recover highlights and shadows or generate different grain feel through processing choices.

It has been the first choice for many top photographers over its lifespan. In fact, when Kodak went through bankruptcy and restructuring in 2012, Don McCullin panic-bought 150 rolls in case it didn’t survive the turmoil! Fortunately for Mr. McCullin and every other photographer, Tri-X did survive and is still available fresh in both 35mm and 120 formats.

It’s sometimes called 400 tx, Trix or Kodak 400TX. 

Also available in 36 exposures here

Kodak - properly known as Kodak Eastman - was founded in America in 1888 and dominated the "Western" world of photography for the next 100 years, constantly in fierce rivalry with the Japanese Fuji. Similarly to Fuji the advent of digital photography at the turn of the century caused significant financial problems. A late attempt to win in the compact market was hit by the rise of mobile photography and bankruptcy followed in 2012. Fortunately the photography business has survived under the Kodak Alaris name - based in Hertfordshire, England - and they have delighted the analogue industry by pledging continued support for film production and the promise of bringing back old favourite emulsions.

A true classic black and white film, with great contrast, grain, and rich tones, BUT Ilford HP5 is so much cheaper and in my opinion, is just as good.

A Classic.

Rich deep tones , magninficent blacks, superb contrast , forgiving and easy to use. Hardly suprising the popularity and longevity of this Kodak classic. Its versatility even extends to development as the options for developer are almost limitless. I have even stand developed it in FX55 with great success. It would be 5 star if it weren't for Kodak's pricing policy , perhaps they will price themselves out of the market , perhaps not, there are cheaper alternatives , but Kodak is a strong brand, and if you want that classic photojournalist/documentary look to your photography then you would be hard pushed to find better.

Lovely emulsion.

Havent used this for a while now. Classic film from Kodak never fails to disappoint rated at 400. I can highly recommend this for beginners though, as its very forgiving on exposure. ( My meter packed in so i used mainly f8 and f16 125th and 60th respectively with a bit of bracketing too. Recommended.

Classic B+W

I haven’t shot Tri-X film in decades and had forgotten how good it is but this was the first time I popped it into the plastic fantastic Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim (the most toy like camera I’ve ever used) - with a fixed len, aperture and shutter speed the film deliver some lovely shots and I’m still amazed!
I love the grain, contrast and mid tones of this film so I recommend you try a roll, preferably the 36 exp!
