Kodak T-Max 400 120 film is an excellent professional black and white film, Kodak's patented T-grain emulsion coated on its medium format base delivers impressive levels of detail in different - and difficult - lighting situations.
It has also been optimised for high quality scanning and enlarging post-development - the ISO 400 variant is perfect for everyday use in a variety of light levels.
Note: sometimes referred to as Kodak TMAX 400.
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.

Can always rely on Kodak film to be of high quality and this balanced speed and sharpness very well. Glad I picked up a 5-pack when the price was discounted!
Fab film, gives a nice balance to sharpness and contrast. Can't beat shooting random portraits on the street.
Probably the best B&W film there is for everything where natural light is the goal. This film has sharpness and tonality in spades and is fast enough for most occasions but if not can easily be pushed a stop or two with the usual increases in contrast that goes with it. As with everything you get what you pay for.
Very nice film with fine grain and beautiful prints
