Where Has All The Tri-X Gone?

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by street shooter, Jul 18, 2004.

  1. B&H no longer offers grey market Tri-X, and their USA Tri-X is out of
    stock. Please tell me Kodak hasn't made the mother of all bad
    decisions - no Tri-X.

    Michael,

    If you want the USA Tri-X, you can look at the 2-packs which B&H lists in
    stock. I ran into the same issue looking for the grey market today after
    they notified me that it was in stock, but apparently not yet. As a side
    note, Adorama who also was backordered lists it as in stock now.

    HTH,

    Contact Gary Farber (filmguygary @aol.com) at Hunt's photo. He should have it,
    atleast he did on Sunday. There is a new version of it and that may be why it
    is in short supply now.

  6. Follow-up to my own question. I spoke with Kodak yesterday and they
    assured me that Tri-X is still very much alive and kickin'. They
    suggested trying another retailer, but I have about a dozen rolls so
    hopefully B&H will have replenished their stock soon enough for me to
    order through them. I am thinking of trying Fortepan 400, just to see
    how I like it. Also thinking of trying some TMax 100, which I use
    in-studio, for some selective DOF street photography. Sometimes
    seeing everything renderred reasonably sharp gets redundant; it might
    be neat to get the main subject to visually seperate from the
    background. Thanks for the replies.

    Just my 2cts. but Fortepan is probably the worst fim I've ever tried.
    Inconsistant; pinholes; can't get two shots the same. OTOH, Efke might be
    the nicest I've used. Bob Hickey
