Kodak Tri-X 400 35mm B&W Film
Our Price: £6.50 GBP100185
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 film is exactly what I'm looking for in my b&w photography - I shoot it at box speed and get gorgeous negatives full of contrast, and sharp but with a fine grain.
Tri-X is one of the last great black and white films. It is wonderfully contrasty, and has a tonal quality that is difficult to describe. Can be pushed nicely to ISO 1600 and beyond. Now my go to monochrome option.
By far my favourite black and white film, I love the broad range of tones and great exposure latitude
The classic B&W.
A staple of photojournalists and private photographers alike, Tri-X will not let you down. Shot in every condition from the family garden party to the jungles of Vietnam, Tri-X is a B&W film that transcends the ages. Always had fantastic results when shot at box speed, 400 ISO up to 1600 ISO.
This has got to be my favourite B/W film. It just has that pedigree.
