5.0 out of 5 stars Tri-X is a favorite black & white negative film among many professional film-based photographers, January 20, 2013
By 
This review is from: kodak 115 3659 Tri-X 400 Professional 120 Black and White Film 5 Roll Propack (Electronics)
Tri-X needs no review among real film-based photographers. It has a smooth scale, prints beautifully, was a favorite of Ansel Adams's and many others. I have used this film for 30 years (I typically rate it at ASA200 and then pull the processing -1/2 stop based on my equipment, my metering, etc.). Film-based photographers panic every time Kodak says they're going to stop making Tri-X. And we fear having only one source.

This particular version is for medium-format cameras (not 35mm!). If you don't know what that is, don't buy the film.

I love Amazon, but I do worry about how the film might be stored. If you buy it in a camera store, they know to keep it cool. I worry that Amazon might store it in a hot warehouse with books and all kinds of other products not bothered by heat. Camera stores keep most in a refrigerated area and just put a few rolls out at a time. Mostly I buy it in my local camera store--you should too if you still have one that sells film. That said, I'm buying it this time to round out my purchase and get the free shipping because I know I'll use it. If I find it heat-fogged, I'll come back and write another review.

any issues buying film from Amazon

Actually no. Sorry for the extremely slow response; I just saw your comment. I did order the film from Amazon, and it was not fogged. That said, it would be nice if Amazon included a statement about how they store it. I don't yet trust that every batch will be OK (i.e., I have a local camera store, so I buy from where I know how they store it). But maybe expiration dates protect us from that mostly.
