Kodak Tri-X Film 120 B&W ISO 400
Our Price: £7.50 GBP100186
A truly legendary film, Kodak Tri-X was first introduced in 1940 in sheet film - meaning it is approaching it's 80th birthday! Key to its longevity has been its flexibility - photographers can take it 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. Sometimes called 400 tx, TriX or 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.

One of the best, most versatile black and white films left. Great contrast and lovely grain.
What can you say, the go to film of photojournalists for years and probably the most versatile emulsion ever. Push it, pull it, shoot it however you want and it never fails to deliver. To be honest when people think of black and white it's probably tri-x they have seen. There are more films around now that give this look but I suspect that's because this is probably the definitive black and white film.
If you've not shot it before get a roll it's something every photographer must do...
If you haven't used it in a while, grab a roll and remind yourself probably where you probably started!
