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.

I tried my first roll last year on a trip to Venice. ISO 400 is a great compromise and a good to speed. You love grain, this film is not for you. You like flat negatives, this film is not for you. For the others, it is a great film. Use it film a good lens and you have a gorgeous combo. I still have to try to see how it handles pushing.
I have truly never seen anything like it, I am totally in love with the contrast, tonality, I thought when I first got my scans these are mind blowing like these are my photographs!
In love with it that much I have already purchased another roll, analogue wonderland will always be my number one in purchasing film as they take care and delicately put everything together!
Brought up in the days when Tri- X was the staple B&W film of the day. It was a great all round go to film, allowing flexible processing to uprate the speed and a good contrast ratio. It was sharp but grainy, I would not have used it in 135 format unless I wanted that particular effect and only so only used it in medium format.
Move on several decades and now retired from a career as a stills photographer and TV lighting cameraman,
I recently acquired a leica 111f camera and put a roll of 400TMax through it which I processed at home using the recommended D76 developer (my word that's been around a long time !) I digitised the negs using using a Fuji T1 and a cobbled together slide copying set up and digitally processed the images in photoshoot.
I was very impressed with the results, it definitely does what it says on the tin. Very sharp and great grain structure, great gradation in the blacks with excellent highlights.
Wonderfully fine grained, smooth feeling black and white film. Tmax 400 has a wide tonal range and feels a lot less punchy that other black and white films, and gives images more depth.
Used an old roll of this to test out my 'new' second-hand SLR. It is beautifully crisp, despite the film probably being expired - really nice balance between contrast and detail. My sample shot shows how clear it renderd the wording on a poster. I want to get a new roll to take some "proper" shots when we can all head out again!
