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.

I have used this very good product for many, many years. It was a significantly better product than what was previously available when it first came on the market. I have used it in 35mm, 2 1/4 since the 1980's along with its sister product, T-max 100. I specifically look for a long tone range and excellent detail and acutance in a film such as this and it always delivers if properly exposed and developed.
Even though the cost may be raising a little. It is still a lot cheaper than buy individual rolls of film that are raising in price even more than the bulk film is.
Not a lot of experience with developing my own film, but I haven't had any problems with this and will by it again. I have shot this film at 400, 800, 1600, and 3200 with suprisingly good results.
Of course this product performs well, but the cost of the product is becoming prohibitive.
