KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX 400 Film
The sharpest, finest-grained 400-speed black-and-white film in the world
KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX 400 Film ⁄ 400TMY is a continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film especially useful for photographing dimly lighted subjects or fast action, for extending flash distance range, and for photographing subjects that require good depth of field and fast shutter speeds with maximum image quality for the film speed. It is also useful for scientific and biomedical work, especially when fluorescence photography is required. It has high speed (ISO 400/27 ° in most developers), very high sharpness, very fine grain, and very high resolving power; it allows a high degree of enlargement.
- World’s finest grained 400-speed black-and-white film
- World’s sharpest 400-speed black-and-white film
- Renders distinct edges and fine detail
- Additional speed for low light or fast action

It does require careful processing to maintain optimal contrast. It is quite sensitive to length and temperature of development. In comparison, Delta 400, HP5+, and Tri-X allow for a bit more latitude in development.
I docked 1 star due to Kodak's quality control over the last couple years. Kodak ran into an issue where the backing paper ink would bleed through to the image. Although reportedly fixed, some people claim this is still an issue. I have not experienced this myself, but it has made me cautious of the product, and other Kodak b&w films. I would hate to have important images ruined because of something outside my control.
I do hope to use this film, in 120 format, again in the future, and would not hesitate using it in 35mm and 4x5 as the situation warrants.
TMAX is identified with good speed, contrast fine grain. Exposure at 800, 1600 and even 3200 is not beyond this film.
Probably why Kodak no longer makes 1600 or 3200 TMAX.
Another developer for this film that seems to go well is the Clayton F76. The only dilution I have used is the 1:9 . This developer has working dilutions from 1:3 to 1:19 and in-between, yet untested. Minimum F76 developer (in any dilution) is 32ml for a roll of 120 or 35mm/36 exposure(.4ml/per square inch )
The film I received from Amazon, was fresh and exactly as described. It's nice to be able to buy this film again, as it is hard to find locally. Thanks Amazon!
If you are wondering if this is better than Ilford Delta 400 (essentially their copy of it), I've had a lot better and more consistent results from the Kodak product. This is not surprising to me - Kodak sunk serious money in TMY twice (once when it created it in the 1980s and again when it spent hundreds of millions on a new production line in the early 2000s to make the improved version). Ilford has never had the scientific muscle or raw engineering abilities that Kodak had - and Ilford has been running on rickety machinery for decades (to say nothing of the fact that it has been out of business several times - Kodak is not alone there). And often, I wonder if the only reason Ilford gets any traction (other than price) is Kodak-spite driven by the fact that someone's favorite film (Triple-X Porn or whatever) got axed because it cost $500K to make a master roll and only three people were buying it. The attitudes toward Kodak are like cutting off one's nose to spite one's face. From a technical standpoint, TMY is the best and most consistent 400-speed tablet grain product. But hey, why let that get in the way of bitterness? I mean, I recovered from the axing of Tech Pan, Verichrome Pan, Plus-X, every 220 film, and Supra - and at the end of the day, Alaris Kodak still has a similar a b/w film selection to any volume manufacturer.
And all of that said, some people will say equal and opposite things in favor of Delta 400 based on their own particular needs, workflow, experience, etc. But to me, it's kind of like walking into a restaurant and asking for a Pepsi. :-) It's not a huge difference in product performance/quality at the end of the day, but when 120 film is running toward 80 cents a shot for 6x9, you start to look for incremental increases in quality. Or at least peace of mind. TMY gives it.
