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 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 and 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.

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
I wanted something to shoot music with, I thought perhaps something black and white would be best, I wasnt disappointed with the results. The high grain of the film gives a fairly abstract / mystic feel to the images, but without sacrificing detail, usually I prefer colour film but on this occasion black and white was just perfect. I highly recommend this film it has produced some of my favourite shots of the year.
Having shot film for nearly 20years I'd pretty much always shot colour. Occasionally I'd try the odd black and white stock but never really cared for it.
I recently shot a roll of P3200 T-max. Mostly night stuff around central London. It was also the first-ever roll of black and white I processed at home. To be honest I wasn't expecting a lot. I was mostly drawn to this film because of its speed rather than it being a black and white stock.
When I got the negs scanned I was blown away. Firstly because I developed it myself and didn't ruin it :)
But mostly I was blown away by how clean the images were. I developed with Kodak XTOL)
For 3200iso the grain is so fine and the images were really sharp. Which was a surprise considering I shot wide open on a Zuiko 28mm that has a fair amount of fungus and dust inside.
Another thing that really impressed me was the amount of detail retained in the highlights. I was able to pull so much information back from areas that I'd initially thought were completely blown out.
I really love this film. My only issue is I wish I bought more of the short-dated stuff as it was on £5 a roll!
If you want to develop at home and like low light photography give this ago... even if you're not that into black and white. You'll be impressed!
Kodak TMax P3200 isn’t a 3200 ISO film. That’s right; it’s not. It’s instead designed to be pushed that far. Kodak TMax P3200 is an ISO 800 film, only a stop faster than their TMax 400 film that’s been alive and well for years. It’s not designed to look like Tri-X. Instead, Kodak TMax P3200 has T-grain; a completely different grain structure to the film.
I do like this film although I shoot it rarely, first things first, it’s very grainy but however it still seems to show detail and texture in that the grain doesn’t obscure the image. I certainly want to experiment more with this. I shot mine at iso 1600 which seems to work well.
