Kodak Tri-X 400 - 35mm Film - 36exp
Our Price: £10.00 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.

Had a lot of fun shooting this film. Was invited to a war reenactment group to take some photos, so I got a few rolls of this
Dropped this in my Espio point & shot for a trip to London and it didn't disappoint. It's not hard to see why its distinctive look and feel is so loved and it has endured for so long. Every film photographer should have at least one roll in their camera bag.
Not sure that there is much left to say about Tri-X 400 its been used by photographers the world over for more than 80 years! Any way the grain, contrast and tone are fantastic.
Can’t go wrong with Tri-X. Glorious grain, classic look, full of character and plenty of shadow detail.
Some things in photography are like holy grails. You can't even write your opinion for them as they have been tested and judged through the years so many times. I am a professional photographer for 25 years and that was one of the very first films I used and I still use when I shoot film. Kodak Tri-X !!!
Amazing b&w tones... and a grain like no other. A trademark grain for sure!
Tip: Shoot with it at 800 ISO and push it 1 stop in development for better results.
I only hope Kodak will continue its production for many many years more...
Are you still thinking of using one ??? Go for it without a second thought!
