Kodak Tri-X 35mm is a truly legendary film. Kodak Tri-X emulsion was first introduced in 1940 in sheet film, making it over 80 years old!
Key to its longevity has been its flexibility - photographers can take TriX 35mm 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 of Kodak Tri-X 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.

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 really liked using this film!
As a big fan of all the documentary photographers from the mid century, I always wanted to try Tri X and it didn’t disappoint. Love the deep shadows and contrast in this great film.
I love the old documentary photographers from the 50s and 60s, I was so excited about trying out this film, hoping for contrast and nice dark shadows, and it didn't disappoint.
A film with a very big contrast, I think this film would work very well in studio / indoor portraits rather than outdoor photography. I really struggled with getting a correct exposure with this film. I prefer Ilford HP5 which has similar contrast.
This is possibly the best B&W film I have used to date. Ok it's mid range price wise but it is worth every penny. Hardly any grain, great contrast, sharp and very easy to use. I loved the images from my first roll taken both indoors and outside the film coped so well with changing conditions. Will definitely get more of it. Could be my new fave film stock.
