Tri-X WOW! Great job, Kodak!

Usually I just go down to Kodak Canada here in Toronto and buy my film direct, but it was a long way away, and would be closed by the time we could get there. So we went a few blocks down to Henry's, which surprisingly stocks Plus-X pretty regularly, but not that day. They had one super 8 cart in the store, Tri-X. I haven't tried out the new Tri-X before. Really did not like the old Tri-X in super 8. But I was pretty impressed by some new Tri-X footage I had seen clips posted of here and elsewhere and Kodak's site talks about it being much sharper, less grainy, and more easily intercut with Plus-X, so I went with it.
Now I see that it is way better than the old stuff was. I still like Plus-X better, but it's pretty great.

Yeah the new Tri-X is way better than the old. And the new Plus-X, looks more like a slower version of the new Tri-X. Finer, but handles latitute in a similar way. Where as, the old Plus-X seemed courser and sharper with more contrast. And I agree the new emultions can be cut together much better. So overall, I must say I am happier with the offering as a whole
Told ya! The new Tri-X rocks! I want to shoot my next few shorts using it.
