About Kodak

KODAK T-MAX 400 Professional Film is a continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film especially useful for photographing dimly lighted subjects or fast action, for extending flash distance range, and for photographing subjects that require good depth of field and fast shutter speeds with maximum image quality for the film speed. It is also useful for scientific and biomedical work, especially when fluorescence photography is required. It has high speed (ISO 400/27° in most developers), very high sharpness, extremely fine grain, and high resolving power; it allows a high degree of enlargement.

A continuous tone, panchromatic black-and-white negative film that is especially useful for photographing dimly lighted subjects, fast action, extended range flash pictures, and subjects that require good depth of field. This film is highly useful for scientific and biomedical work, especially when fluorescence photography is required. Its high speed (EI 400), very high sharpness, extremely fine grain, and high resolving power enable a high degree of enlargement. You can expose it at a speed of EI 800 with normal processing, or at EI 1600 with push-processing to obtain excellent results. Applications include:
Fluorescence Photomicrography
Darkfield Photomicrography
Photomicrography of live biological specimens

Kodak Features

  • KODAK T-GRAIN Emulsion that reshapes pebble-like crystals into a tabular form with more surface to catch light
  • Allows films with extremely fine grain to be made faster; high-speed films have finer grain. T-MAX Professional Films offer the best of both worlds: high speed and fine grain.
  • Improved sharpness
  • Maintains subject detail in prints at higher degrees of magnification than conventional films.
  • Expanded exposure latitude
  • Greater "forgiveness" with overexposure errors; quality prints from moderately under- or overexposed negatives.
  • Better highlight separation.
  • Improved reciprocity at long and short exposure times
  • Less compensation required than with conventional films.
  • 120-size film coated on a thicker (4.7-mil) base than other black-and-white roll films
  • Improved dimensional stability; easier darkroom handling.
  • Virtually no difference between the daylight and tungsten film speeds
  • No need to adjust exposure for different light sources.
  • More responsive to zone-system development changes
  • Smaller time adjustments needed.
  • No increase in processing time required for one-stop "push" with most developers
  • No need to segregate one-stop-pushed film from normally exposed film. You can mix normal exposures and one-stop-pushed exposures on the same roll. (You may want to use paper one-half grade higher in contrast to print one-stop-pushed exposures.)
  • Less development-time increase required for film pushed by two or more stops
  • Saves processing time.
  • Processed in standard developers, including KODAK T-MAX Developer and KODAK T-MAX RS Developer and Replenisher
  • No need for a special developer. You can process T-MAX Professional Films with other black-and-white films.
  • T-MAX 400 Professional Film--a versatile film for all-around use
  • Excellent for use under lighting conditions from bright sunlight to dim existing light.

Love this film!

I keep more of the T-Max 400 on hand than any other film. It's such a good all around B&W film. Low grain and great detail.

Light Leaks

All rolls of this film I have shot had light leaks along the edges. Some ruined some good shots. No such problems with films from other manufacturers. Other than that, it took relatively long fixing to clear properly, but that was easy to adjust to.

T-Max is fine

By

from Los Angeles  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Well T-Max 120 is what it is, but what's important here is that Adorama is the best place to get it. Best prices, fast shipping.

Amazing dynamic range

By

from Bronx, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

I love shooting my street shots in black and white and I've used the Tri-x a few times and have not been disappointed at all. I love how my blacks stay black and yet retain detail so well. It just shows how much dynamic range there is in film over digital.

My favorite 400iso film

By

from California  -  Photo Enthusiast

This remains one of my favorite 400 iso film. It has great tonal range, even when compare to tmax100 film. This film is tolerant to a variety of kodak developers. For most of the time, I use D76 for all of my Tmax film.

My Favorite Film!

By

from Ontario, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I use T-Max 400 in 35mm and 120, it's my favorite film for all my B&W photography, from street photos, to travel to portraits. This is a very sharp film, with 100 ISO grain. After developing the film stays very flat and it's so very easy to scan.

Unwholesome Love

By

from North Carolina  -  Photo Enthusiast

I have an unhealthy infatuation with this film... specifically, I love negatives exposed at 1600 and developed in HC-110 (B) - they have wonderful tonality, perfect contrast and tight grain. If I'm not shooting it at 1600, I rate at 800 over 400 for increased contrast. I can't speak to printing from the negative, but I can say that it scans quite well. I can't recommend it enough.

Excellent B&W Film

By

from Ontario, CA  -  Pro Photographer

Excellent tonal range, very fine grain. This film has extra-thick base, so after developing stays flat and so much easier to scan. This film is "pushable" up to 3200 ISO with several developers, my favorites are Kodak Xtol and D-76.
