    What ASA is Tri-X Pan

    I came across an film 16 sheet pack of TRI-X pan. What ASA was this film? I remember from back in the day it was NOT 400 like it is now. This was the kind in the yellow & green pack.

    Thanks

    As far as I recall and that is way back into the early 60's (1961/2 the speed was always 400. The film that was also available alongside
    Tri X at the time was XX Pan and that was 320. Awful stuff, no contrast and grain that you could almost feel. But as an impoverished student it was all I could afford.

    If this is a 523 Film Pack, it is not really sheet film. Those were available in 16 shot packs.

    Going back to 1974 when I started, it was 400 ASA.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    The film did not change but they way they rated film did. In 1960 all film speeds doubled including Tri-X. Again the film did not change but the rating did. Kodak Tri-X went from 200 to 400 overnight.

    Imagine the confusion for someone using it that night.
