4.75/5

I think Tri-X is a fantastic b/w film but the reason it didn’t get a solid 5/5 is because it is kind of expensive. Often imitated but unique in its own way, Tri-X seems to have strong contrast perfected. I would shoot Kodak Tri-X at any ISO from 100-3200 and develop accordingly. I also can’t think of any situation where Tri-X wouldn’t be suitable for. Weddings: Check. Architecture? No problem. Abstract stuff? Got you covered. There’s nothing this film can’t do so if you’re looking for an all-around film, this one is hard to beat with the exception of HP5+ because HP5 is cheaper. I also highly recommend shooting anything “old” with Tri-X. From people to monumental buildings, it just seems to look right.

The "standard", just not for me.

I know this is the tried and true “standard” of the world, but I’m not a fan. I rate my results as average and never better. Once I started shooting Kodak HIE b&w infrared years ago, that became my go-to b&w film for its high contrast.
Having just shot Tri-X again for the first time in 30 years, my opinion has not changed. Kodak HIE is gone, but I’ve found better Ilford b&w film but for contrast and grain, I’m loving Bergger.

The Classic

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.

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.

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.
