Tri-X

DSCN0620 edit 2b

In trying to find a use for my new nikon s4200 (pocket camera) that does decent HD video with good sound, but truly horrid photographs. I’ve turned the color off and have found I’m getting photos similar to my old film days. There is hope, and each year I try to shoot some black & white. Now I have no choice, this may be an interesting direction.

“Tri-X panchromatic film was once one of the most popular films used by photojournalists and many amateurs. It was manufactured by Eastman Kodak in the US, Kodak Canada, and Kodak Ltd in the UK. Kodak data-sheets once recommended different processing times depending on where the film was manufactured. Its sales declined in the 1970s and 1980s due to the falling price and increasing popularity of colour film. Since the advent of digital photography, Tri-X has all but fallen out of use in newspaper journalism, though it remains popular in documentary journalism.”
