There is a reason why this film has been a standard in the industry for so long. Some of the most iconic B+W images have been taken on this emulsion. It has amazing latitude and can be pushed and pulled to extreme levels. It tends to be a bit grainier than some of the other B+W options, but it does give the images that classic Tri-X feel that seems to be impossible to recreate digitally. You can’t go wrong with this film. This is my favorite and most consistent B+W film.
Excellent for taking photos in cities
Kodak Tri-X 400 was my first roll of black and white film, and I was blown away by how well it turned out. I used it to take pictures of buildings in a local city and loved the contrast and grain.
Maybe the perfect film
Tri-X has the perfect amount of contrast for me, wide exposure latitude, minimal grain, and it pushes well. Perfect for street photography and portraiture. One of the titans of the analog world.
