Looking for an extremely versatile B&W film? We recommend TMAX 400 – for being a fast iso B&W film it still has very fine grain. This film has incredible exposure, pushes & pulls well, and has great tones and medium contrast.

Tmax is hands down my favorite black and white film. For being a 400 speed film, it is incredibly “clean”, and the contrast is second to none. Please try it if you haven’t already.

I love T-Max, even if it a very “clean” film, it does have soul with wonderful contrast perfect for portraits, urban spaces and landscapes. I shoot it always with my meterless Leica, and even if I must make mistakes time to time I have never had any problem with its latitude (I use 16 sunny rule with one or two stops of overexposure and never found a problem)

By far, the best Black and White film for everyday shooting

I always keep a camera loaded with T-Max 400. It’s fine grained and incredibly sharp. Shadow details just seem to go on forever but still with snappy contrast.
