Kodak Tri-X 400 Stand Development Film Review

Here is our Kodak Tri-X 400 Stand Development Film Review. We shot a roll of Tri-X our Contax G2, then stand developed it. So, have a look at our film test and see what you think.

We’ve shot Tri-X before, it is one of our favourites.  It is also one of the most popular black and white films we sell. This time around we wanted to try something different and stand develop it. So, for our Kodak Tri-X 400 Stand Development film review, we put a roll of Tri-X in our Contax G2 and took it out around Herne Hill in South London.

One of the reasons to stand develop is that you should get equally well-exposed highlights and shadows. From our results, we see this is certainly true. It was a bright autumn day, with very harsh shadows. But, we still managed to retain all the details in them. All without blowing out the highlights.

Another benefit of this processing method is finer grain. Kodak Tri-X is well known for it’s distinctive, rough grain. With these images, the grain is noticeably finer. Whilst still keeping the sharp Tri-X contrast and rich tones that we like.

Overall, we were very impressed with the balance of contrast and high level of detail. If you want to try stand developing yourself, check out our How To Stand Develop Film article for more details on our process.
