A truly legendary film, Kodak Tri-X 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.

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.

This is a great film for documentary photography with a subtle grain texture. I developed this in Kodak T Max developer for 8 min instead of the recommended 6 min which was not long enough, Great contrast and detail captured in the images.
I bought this specifically to push it to 1600 over the Christmas period when the light (especially indoor for family moments) wasn't going to be great. It offered a lot of freedom and held up well in dev.
The classic film emulsion - perfect in every way for me. It's the perfect film stock. ASA is just right for pretty much everything, contrast is lovely and the grain is second to none.
This is my favourite black and white film I've used so far. The detail is fantastic, very thin grain, and the contrast in the photos is just perfect. It's especially good for street photography and architecture, but honestly, it worked beautifully in every scenario for me.
