Description

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.

Super nice B&W film, very contrasty.

Excellent for sharp, gritty B&W work.

I see what all the fuss is about.

I bought a roll of this as I know it is popular amongst the photojournalist community and wanted to see first hand why it is a favourite amongst photographers. I didn't take shooting this roll very seriously at all, simply using my in-camera light meter and going for the shot regardless of what camera settings were being put out. While none of the images on the roll shout out to me, Kodak Tri-X rendered them beautifully. The contrast in the film is beautiful, without being as harsh as other films, like Fuji Across 100ii. I recently fell in love with Ilford and have seen some people compare Kodak Tri-X to HP5. From my limited exoprliecne, I don't think this is possible. Try-X isn't as grainy as HP5 and has a slightly higher contrast. Where these films are comparable is in their 'Point and shoot' flexibility, however, the price difference between Kodak Tri-X and HP5 means I shall probably save shooting Kodak Bri-x for worthy occasions and stick to [****] for the most part.

A true classic

Punchy, versatile and with a look all it's own Tri-X never disappoints.

Marvelous contrast and detail

Was gifted a roll of this and shot it without much thought or care, not realising it was a more premium B&W film stock.
Nevertheless, even with a nonchalant approach to my framing and metering I was able to get some pictures that took to my liking.
Will definitely be picking up again in the future for some more thoughtful days of picture taking.

Wonderfully moody

I used this film whilst exploring Sligachan Glen on the Isle of Skye. The lighting was relatively low, bit overcast with the odd spot of rain. I absolutely love the photos I got back- the texture of the heather and rocks combined with the highlights of the water is just wonderfully atmospheric. I wasn't sure what I'd get back but I'm so pleased.
