KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX 100 Film ⁄ 100TMX is a continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film for general outdoor and indoor photography. It is especially useful for detailed subjects when you need maximum image quality. It is also excellent for copying black-and-white photographs, for making black-and-white copies from color transparencies, and for photomicrography. This film features medium speed (ISO 100/21° in most developers), extremely high sharpness, extremely fine grain, and very high resolving power. It allows a very high degree of enlargement.

You can also use T-MAX 100 Film to produce high-quality black-and-white slides from camera-original exposures, continuous-tone photographs, drawings, artwork, and radiographs when you process it with the KODAK T-MAX 100 Direct Positive Film Developing Outfit. The T-MAX Outfit also lets you use this film to produce copy negatives from black-and-white or color negatives, to make duplicate black-and-white slides, or to make black-and-white slides from color slides.

FEATURES
• KODAK T-GRAIN
• Allows films with extremely fine grain to be made faster; high-speed films have finer grain.
• Improved sharpness
• Expanded exposure latitude
• Improved reciprocity at long and short exposure times
• 120-size film coated on a thicker (4.7-mil) base than other black-and-white roll films
• Virtually no difference between the daylight and tungsten film speeds
• More responsive to zone-system development changes
• No increase in processing time required for one-stop “push” with most developers
• Less development-time increase required for film pushed by two or more stops
• Processed in standard developers, including KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX Developer and KODAK KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX RS Developer and Replenisher
• T-MAX 100 Film— excellent for use in copy applications with normal exposure and processing

KODAK PROFESSIONAL EKTACHROME Film E200 is a daylight-balanced 200-speed color transparency film designed for processing in KODAK Chemicals, Process E-6. The film offers moderate contrast, along with excellent color and image structure, making it the first high-speed color transparency film with the “look” of a lower speed film. In addition, E200 Film delivers outstanding push-processing performance to an exposure index (EI) of 800 with only minimal shifts in contrast and color balance. E200 Film also features KODAK T-GRAIN® Emulsions for extremely fine grain and very high sharpness, plus improvements in reciprocity and manufacturing consistency. The film is designed for exposure with daylight or electronic flash. You can also expose it with tungsten illumination (3200 K) or photolamps (3400 K) using filters.

Use E200 Film to produce color transparencies for projection or viewing with 5000 K illumination. Duplicate transparencies can be made by direct printing. To make color prints, you can print transparencies onto color reversal paper. Or make internegatives for printing onto color negative paper. You can also scan transparencies for digital printing and for graphic arts and photo CD applications.

FEATURES
• Outstanding push-processing performance out to EI 800
• Preferred contrast of an EI 100-speed color transparency film (lower contrast than other high-speed color-transparency films)
• KODAK T-GRAIN® Emulsions in all color records
• Enhanced colors while maintaining natural-looking skin tones

• Superb reciprocity

Most of the kodak express shops only sell consumer film (Superia, Kodak Gold, Kodak Ultramax, etc). If you want professional film (Portra, Ektar, Tri-X, TMax, Ilford, etc), you need to visit either Ruby, Konota, Cathay Photo, or Triple D.
