Films for Leica Centennial

The Leica 100th Anniversary Limited Edition M100 set contains the Leica M-A + Leica M Monochrom combination. Also included is a film, which is Kodak tri-x 400TX, Kodak’s legendary black and white film.

This is also Kodak’s most popular black and white film, with a high dynamic range, a variety of processing solutions and forced flush solutions. It is called “film that can be developed with water.” It is a favorite of news reporters and photographers from Magnum. Leica’s 100th anniversary model chose this film, showing how high 400tx is in the photography world.

Very high dynamic range

The kodak tri-x 400TX has a very high dynamic range, which is very useful for human photography and street photography that need to be quickly captured. Many times you have no time to adjust the aperture and shutter speed. In these areas this requires negative film to have a higher dynamic range. Many people will use Kodak 400tx as iso800, iso1600 film, and double or double the development time when developing. Some people use it as iso100, iso200 film, and then shorten the development time appropriately. The kodak tri-x 400TX gives people more freedom to play, which is one of the main reasons people love it.

Contrast

Large dynamic range does not mean low contrast. Although Kodak’s volume has a large dynamic range, it does not emphasize highlights and shadows, but the contrast in the middle is still quite large. The kodak tri-x 400TX will not be too dull when encountering low-contrast lenses, and will not be too contrasty when encountering high-contrast lenses. It is also one of the magical places.

sharp

The kodak tri-x 400TX is not the sharpest film, but sharpness is one of its attributes.

Roll

It is very common for film to be cut into 6 sheets. The medicine surface of kodak tri-x 400TX is easy to roll. This has the advantage that the medicine surface shrinks into the arc and is not easily touched or scratched. The disadvantage is that it is inconvenient to scan, especially for flat scanners such as Epson v series, the film pressure is not flat. Before scanning, you should use a book to press the film for a few days to scan.
