Black and White Dreams: Kodak Tri-X (120, 400 iso) User-Review

The Tri-X 400 was the first black and white I loaded in to my Diana and It was just what I hoped it would be!

It was a long time since the last time I shot in black and white. My last experience was not a great success. There is something about shooting black and white – one should remember that what one sees is not exactly what one gets and that color-based contrast sometimes gets lost in translation.

And that was what I was missing in my last B&W roll, a few years back, the contrast. So, when I got a roll of the Tri-X 400, I thought that this time I’ll try to do the mental switch of shooting black and white, and hoped to get the aid of this film. It delivered. I was very happy when I picked up the first developed and printed roll from the lab. It was just what I wanted! I loved the deep contrast, the wide spectrum of grays and the fine grain. Since then I shot a few more rolls, and was very satisfied from the results.

Well, if you like black and white, I say you should definitely give this one a try!
