Kodak T-MAX P3200 35mm B&W Film - EXPIRED
Now: £5.00 GBP
A chance for a great deal on some top-quality Kodak film!
An excellent black and white professional 35mm film, Kodak T-MAX 3200 film is perfect for low-light situations. Kodak won the hearts of film photographers worldwide when they reintroduced this emulsion as P3200 in 2018. Their patented T-grain emulsion delivers impressive levels of detail in different — and difficult — lighting situations, especially impressive when rated at 3200. It has also been optimised for high-quality scanning and enlarging post-development, so your photos will live in print and on screen in the highest possible quality. Go hunting in the dark, and enjoy the results! This ISO 3200 film is sometimes referred to as TMAX P3200.
Note that the expiry date on this batch is either 11/2019 or 01/2020. Because Kodak R&D will always be cautious with new emulsions until they've seen it in the real world for a few years they are deliberately conservative with the timescales on the first few batches. However this film has been produced since the launch last year, it has been stored properly since manufacture, and it should produce perfectly consistent results deep into 2020.

Kodak - properly known as Kodak Eastman - was founded in America in 1888 and dominated the "Western" world of photography for the next 100 years, constantly in fierce rivalry with the Japanese Fuji. Similarly to Fuji the advent of digital photography at the turn of the century caused significant financial problems. A late attempt to win in the compact market was hit by the rise of mobile photography and bankruptcy followed in 2012. Fortunately the photography business has survived under the Kodak Alaris name - based in Hertfordshire, England - and they have delighted the analogue industry by pledging continued support for film production and the promise of bringing back old favourite emulsions.

I couldn't shoot this film at 3200 as intended because my camera - a Yashica T3 - is limited to 1600. However, the results are as I hoped for with good contrast, high level of detail and really nice, fine grain which is something I usually add to my digital black and white images. I will definitely buy more in the future.
Really enjoyed using this film, was able to get fast shutter speeds with it. I find there is a fair amount of grain but that is what I like in a film so I will be using this again, I was using a voigtlander vito B so a lot of my where not perfectly in focus.
But the film is great, I feel like it should be shot in very low light
Up front I will admit I dislike grain, that said I thought I would try a roll. I shot it at 3200 and devolved it in D76 with no pushing or pulling, just to see how it did out of the box so to speak. By, it has grain, if you like grain you’ll love it. Of the images I took the ones in good light with plenty of highlights seemed to be grainier, whereas the inside shots in poor light the grain was less. Which for me says use it inside on poor light unless you are heavily into grain.
I am not sure I would use it again, it’s just not to my liking, I think it demonstrates to me if you need to shoot in ISO 3200 conditions use digital, as we can recognise the limitations of digital when compared with film, I think we also need to recognise the limitations of film.
We're lucky that we have both P3200 from Kodak and Ilford's Delta 3200. I'm well used to the latter but have only recently started trying P3200. In comparison The Kodak offering is possibly slightly more fine grained. It shows a nice tonal range. By comparison I think Delta 3200 handles very difficult lighting conditions ( live music concerts) a bit better with improved shadow detail. The differences are pretty small and I'm happy to shoot either. It's a shame that this Kodak film still isn't available in 120 format. £5mm users can use with confidence. I've developed it in Ilfotec HC and Microphen and prefer the results from the former ( just a bit more bite to the images). The emulsion seems a bit more prone to scratches , so handle with care.
Had an enormous amount of fun with this. Never used an ISO this high before, and unfortunately totally misjudged how dark it was going to be at the park so ended up pushing to 6400 anyway. Yes it was grainy but if you take that into consideration with the photos you make it can be a lovely effect. Will certainly use again
