It defines color in black and white context.The contrast and tonal range are great. Just love it.




from Paros, Greece  -  Pro Photographer

What can I say? Kodak quality, Kodak latitude. Now of they would only bring back Plus-X 120...


Fantastic for the grain-lover!


from NC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I shot this at 400 and 1600, developed in rodinal, and both gave lovely results. Grain = yummy


Excellent Film

Great Film


from Hobart, Tasmania  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this for my own purposes, lately its been close ups of nature, and I find at 120 its plenty sharp and has a nice range of tones, although I'm still getting a feel for a favoured method for developing. I develop and scan it myself, and have found it has a nice clear base and dries nice and flat (in my bathroom, which is quite humid anyway. Definitely recommended.


Kodak Tri-X Pan 400, 120 format film


from Boston  -  Pro Photographer

This is may favorite film for fine art purposes. While there are other fine films out there, Tx 400 can be used in more lighting situations than any other film.


Best B&W Film!


from San Francisco, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have been using this film for years and it is the best I have found. I have tried others and have only been disappointed.
