Low-contrast & high speed, but grainy.

This quickly became our staple stock on the award-winning short documentary film 'A Shift in Perception'. Its 200 asa rating produced nice low-con transparencies that telecine'd to video well for digital editing. Contrast increases with a DIY telecine, so the low con was a favourable aspect. Can be a bit grainy for portraiture, but great for slow-motion and low light applications. Also yielded interesting results when developed as neg in diafine, though I haven't experimented thoroughly with ...

Great Product, Bad Service

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Casual Photographer

The product is Great. The service involved in getting it to my house was HORRIBLE. Adorama fulfilled their end of the bargain initially by sending the item to USPS (1) day after I purchased online. The item sat at the USPS facility for over a week. When I called Adorama to check on the status, the representative told me I had two options: A refund or Another Item which would be shipped by UPS. I really wanted to the film so I chose to have Adorama send another. Within two days of each other, both rolls of film showed up at my house unexpectedly. Today, I received a phone call from Adorama requesting payment for the "makeup" film that was sent. So now I have to take MORE time out of my day to print and send the extra film back to Adorama. The representative on the phone offered to waive my initial postage which is not much of a help considering the massive headaches it has caused in order to receive (1) roll of film! It would have been nice to know that I would have been charged for (2) if (2) indeed showed up. At no point was this told to me. I was excited to come across this company by a friend who referred me because I plan to shoot a lot of Super-8 film in the future. I will be taking my business elsewhere and will tell my friend to do the same considering the nightmare it has been. Disappointed...

The always reliable stock for any settin

By

from New York, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

For the last two years I have shot more Super8 Tri-X than any other stock. It's surprisingly good in low light and outstanding with moderate to good light. Last year I shot a short film in the NYC subways and tunnels and was stunned to find that every single shot was exposed correctly, resulting in an image that never seemed dull or under-exposed. That was a real eye opener for me. Also, because this is a reversal stock, your scanning options are greatly multiplied vs Kodak's Vision3 negative stocks. It's also cheaper to scan B&W reversal with most companies.

One of the Best for Super 8

By

from Washington, DC  -  Casual Photographer

I ordered this Super 8 cassette from Adorama because it's one of the last few places that still carry this kind of stuff. Absolutely essential for independent, amateur, and all other shoe-string budget movie makers on Super 8 film! [...]

Good value in Super8

By

from Waco, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

Used Tri-X 7266 to test out a Yashica Su-60E and shoot a few scenes for a music video project. All images were rendered with impressive contrast/dynamic range although some parts were overexposed when the light meter malfunctioned (unrelated to the film.) It is fast enough to use moderately bright existing light indoors without an XL shutter, though you would probably need an ND filter in bright sunlight. I'll use it again as it is inexpensive and I like the possibilities of B&W film (color filters, home processing, solarization).

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Whatis the best film to get for a Minolta XL -440?
VINCENT P  There is not much out there any more. Tri-X is just classic and sure to please. Tri-X speaks for itself really. It is one of the oldest films and still wonderful. I enjoy its exposure and watching our movies on it.
Morgan T  Would this work with a Chinon 213 PXI camera?
DAN W  I have a Chinon Super 8 that it works with, but I don't know that model. Sorry.
Shopper  Hello, I have run across some 8 mm film that is still in the can. I do not know if it has been exposed or not. I am looking for someone to check if it is exposed and process it if so?
DAVID S  Hi, Assuming it's regular 8mm? If so, you can normally tell by looking at the end of the film and seeing if it's creased from being spooled onto a takeup reel. The other thing you'll need to check is the film type. Most regular 8mm film was Kodachrome which can no longer be processed. You can tell, again, by looking at the end of the film. Kodachrome was a shiny black on the back side, and a cream color on the emulsion side. There are also film codes that are punched into the end of the film that should give you an idea of what type of film it is. Sometimes there's also a yellow paper band around the film inside the can. That may also tell you what type of film it is. If it's Kodachrome, you're out of luck.
