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.

Reviews about this item

Very good, reliable product


from Duluth, MN  -  Pro Photographer

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.


Overall the price is not bad.


from Pittsburgh, Pa  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.

Versatile, Very Versitle


from Grand Forks, ND  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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.

I am concerned about the rising cost


from Salt Lake City, Utah

Of course this product performs well, but the cost of the product is becoming prohibitive.
