A truly legendary film, Kodak Tri-X film was first introduced in 1940 in sheet format — meaning it is over 80 years old! 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

To understand more about the details above you can check out our film guide or if you want some inspiration then head over to our page on choosing your next film. And if you want the full details about the film, including technical information, read about Kodak Tri-X over on EMULSIVE.


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.

Good reliable film

I tried the film in a rather ugly Konica Z-Up 70 Super and a lovely Minolta XG-M. The results were excellent, though grain was apparent, probably because Ilfosol 3 isn't the best suited developer. The Ilfosol was probably on its way out too as when I opened the bottle I found it was no longer colourless - more a sort of light wee wee shade. Tri-X is a film I will be using again.

Great film

A tolerant film that has a great range of tones with magnificent blacks through to finer shades that provide superb contrast. I have used it extensively for street and architecture and is forgiving in most situations. and easy to use. Although a little pricey is a film I love to indulge myself with as it is one of the all time classics and gives a wonderful old school feel to shots

I'm not too crazy about this film. I find the contrast to be a little too harsh for my liking. But, I feel that's a matter of taste rather than the quality of the emulsion. It's a good film, but it doesn't feel as general as something like HP5. The pricing of the film vs what you can get for equivalent prices is definitely a hit too.

What is there to say about this film, it's one of the remaining greats, long may it stay so.
