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.

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.
I planned ahead for my granddaughters birth and bought a roll of Tmax 3200 for our first meeting. I wanted a few film photo's to go with the digital images and managed to capture my wife saying hello to her. The light was terrible, but having set the asa to 800 I thought I was in with a chance with my Pentax SP500 and Lydith 30mm f/3.5 and I am pleased with the result. I still have half a roll left. I couldn't wait to see my images so put my camera and developing tank in my dark bag, cut the film off the reel and developed it as soon as I got home.
This was my first experience with T grain film, and I'll deffinately be shooting more over the comming year. This film is FAST...even in early February I had to use ND filters to get some shallow Deapth of Field shots, but well worth the effort. The contrast is perfect in my opinion, and the detail superb.
I chose to shoot this film at box speed, so loaded it into my Contax 139 Quartz as the camera has a 3200 ISO setting, and took it with me for a pre-Christmas socially distanced blast with my Brass Band (Fakenham, Norfolk, UK) and decided to take a few shots of my Tuba whilst I had it out. With all the curved reflective surfaces I wasn't expecting too much, but the results are far better than I expected. I developed the film in Kodak HC110 (Dil-B) for 10:30 at 20 Deg C, and found it easy enough to load onto the Paterson spiral. Yes, there is some grain in the images, but much less than I was expecting from a 3200 ISO film.
Would I buy this film again?...WITHOUT HESITATION.!!
This film might be my favourite. Perfect to have stashed away for when you only have evenings to photograph in and the nights are coming in early. I keep a MjuII loaded with this film (Mju-II's ISO automatically goes to 3200, so no push/pulling required either) and it is a total dream pair. Nice fine grain (although don't forget what you're doing, there will still be lots of that grain) and with inky blacks.
I tried this out as I'd bought some when Analogue Wonderland were selling it for around a fiver. At that price, I'd certainly be happy to buy more, but I'm not so keen on it as at full price.
It's fast - 3200 ISO - and comes with all the grain you'd expect from that. It's very contrast too, though again that is a feature and not a bug.
It's forgiving, in the sense that you can shoot more or less at night, but you'll really want to stick with simple images for anything remotely useful.
I did find (apparently this is common in these Kodak emulsions) that it needed a lot longer in the fix bath than was recommended. I checked it after developing and it looked fine, but when I came to scan, the next day, it had a very visible purple tint. The scans were fine, but I have since refixed and washed (leaving the negatives under the light did clear the purple, but they still had colouring from the improper fix).
Just a thing to be aware of.
