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.

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.

My absolute favorite B&W film!

I've used many Kodak, Ilford, and Fuji films. My first roll of T-Max nailed the look I was after! I wasn't expecting anything special after my flat, uninspiring runs with Tri-X, so to find a fast, affordable black and white Kodak film with just the right contrast, sharpness, and tones was a nice surprise. I shoot all kinds of cameras, and although the contrast gets a nice bump from a yellow filter, T-Max doesn't seem to need one as much as Tri-X or Ilford HP5. This film is great for class

I've used many Kodak, Ilford, and Fuji films. My first roll of T-Max nailed the look I was after! I wasn't expecting anything special after my flat, uninspiring runs with Tri-X, so to find a fast, affordable black and white Kodak film with just the right contrast, sharpness, and tones was a nice surprise. I shoot all kinds of cameras, and although the contrast gets a nice bump from a yellow filter, T-Max doesn't seem to need one as much as Tri-X or Ilford HP5. This film is great for classic point-and-shoots, ancient folding cameras, and weird old rangefinders with strange filter sizes. If you have a cult classic P&S (Yashica T4, Olympus Stylus Epic, etc.) and want to shoot great-looking black and white without a filter, this is your film. I develop mine in D-76 1:1 and negatives and the prints look great. Medium format T-Max 400 that expired in 2002 tends to form little black specks on the negatives ten years later, but I've never seen this on fresh film.

Tri X user testing TMax for first time.

When processed in TMax developer, it tended to dry with black specks like scum that won't clean off.

Good choice for B&W film

By

Tmax 400 is a medium universal film in my opinion. For the price, it gives tonal range, and decent contrast. My favorite b&w film is Ilford XP2 400 but sometimes when the wallet is tiny I'll use Kodak Tmax 400 instead and still get pretty good results.

Fantastic All-Purpose Black & White Film

By

TMAX is wonderful film. It's predictable and you know what you're going to get when you shoot it right. Tremendous push-pull ability, excellent tonal range representation and it's easy to juice it for a little more contrast in a given shot. But tone-curve is excellent. TMAX is easy to find best-match commercial processing, too. Many labs run TMAX RS and I know I get better results shooting TMAX than when I shoot HP5+ and run it through my commercial lab. Overall great, reliable and beautiful film.
