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.Continue reading kodak tri-x 400TX review
