Kodak Professional Tri-X 400

Legendary black and white film by Kodak Kodak Tri-x is known to be one of the most popular Black and White films in the market. Many famous photographers have used this film to create their own work.

Kentmere 400

Ilford B&W negative alternative? Ilford film is pricy but with high quality.

It is cheap, reliable and has the “Classical” grey tone. This film only available in 135 format. It would be great if it has medium format too.

Ilford Delta Professional 400

Ilford Delta 400 Name: Ilford Delta Professional ISO: 400 Film type: Black and white Character: Fine grain, high sharpness with medium contrast Difference between Delta 400 and HP5+ Ilford Delta 400 is a high-speed black and white film which has a modern emulsion (tabular-grain film) that can result with finer grain but with less latitude. I would say its tone belongs to the modern days while Ilford HP5+ belongs to the past with more grain and tonal range. Delta 400 gives you a […]
