Outdated KODAK tri-X 400

greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

I have found some Tri-x 400 KODAK films which expired in May'00. Can I use it anyway ? LIked to rate it at 400 and do in Tmax dvlper. Shall i make any adjustments ?

Not even a year outdated? No sweat! Black and white film doesn't degrade anywhere near as quickly as color - I've used stuff four or five years outdated with good results.

Give it an extra minute in the developer if you want to, but you probably wouldn't notice any difference either way.
