So, here’s a short review of a great black and white film I had the opportunity to get and use. I’m talking about the Kodak T-Max 400 Black and White film. It’s used by all major pros, and it will still be used until we no longer find a place to buy one.
As I was saying, this is truly a legendary film made by the legendary company that invented 35mm film photography. There’s a lot to say about this film. First, It’s a black and white film, very appreciated by photographers and myself. I love black and white photography and when I tried this film for the first time, I was amazed.
This film is good for everyone. It’s very forgiving and it will not overexpose unless you really overexpose. I shot this film as an 100 ISO film and I end up with nice results. It’s a great film for its speed. It’s less grainier than other black and white films and it’s best for big prints. Also, the higher sensitivity to light makes this film best for interior shots and dim light conditions. For the future, I would love to see how this film acts in a pinhole camera and long exposure shots. It can be pushed or pulled as much as photographer wants. But that’s a different thing.
On top of everything, it’s used by all professional photographers. And I tried it too, just to see why. And I was very impressed and I will always carry a roll of Kodak T-Max 400 in my camera bag. Until I won’t be able to buy one. It’s my number one recommendation for every photographer who respects good products.
