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've quite enjoyed shooting this film. It's got a grainy / contrast look to it which I quite like. Most interestingly it can be pushed to crazy high ISO's meaning with a suitably fast lens it can be shot handheld at night, which is fun.
I finally tried out the roll of Kodak P3200 Tmax I bought when it first came out, and below are some samples for you to look through. At first glance I notice the film grain is quite fine and sharp for such a high speed emulsion. Based on some of the shots where the sun is still out, but low in the sky, the film doesn’t like to be over-exposed too much, so don’t use it at ISO 3200 when the light is bright like I did in a couple of images below; it’s not like color print film where you can over-expose by three or four stops and the picture still looks fine.
Some people are thinking this is ISO 3200 film, but it’s not, that’s the exposure index, not the ISO rating. Ilford Delta 3200 is actually ISO 1000, and TMAX P3200 is ISO 1000-800 depending on the type of developer used. The ‘P’ in the P3200 is ‘push’ which would be a two stop push for the listed EI. If you have a lab develop this for you, make sure you tell them what you exposed it at. The DX coding is 3200.
I used the excellent metering and sharp Nikon 35Ti camera in auto mode for the most part, except for the really dark shots; and for those I opened the aperture all the way to F/2.8 and used about a 1/15-1/30 shutter speed with no flash.
I’ve used Ilford Delta 3200 in a medium format camera, but for some reason I haven’t posted those pictures, however, I did include one at the bottom to show the differences. The ‘Darkroom’ has a good comparison with Kodak P3200 and Ilford Delta 3200, see it here.
I've only shot the one roll of this whilst comparing with Ilford Delta 3200. I came away preferring the Delta but that's not to say this film hasn't got some good points to it.
It is very grainy. And it's quite a coarse grain, too. But the tonality I found really nice. So it ends up having a nicely gritty edge which could work well for the right subject. I'd definitely use it agan if I wanted a certain look.
As expected the results from this film were very grainy, especially in low light. However I think this added to the atmosphere of some of the photos. Would use this again for the right occasion.
This was my first shot with this film, I love the grain and it's really quite contrasty in low light. It's great in low light but a little unforgiving, if you're doing any street photography at night, you'll get great results with nothing but ambient street light - but take a tripod! Air on the side of over-exposure with an expectation to push it in the developing process. I love how the film allows me to shoot at night without the usual wide-open aperture so you don't lose all depth of field.
Really a favorite. There's always one in my bag.
