No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • ISO 3200
  • Can Be Pushed to IS0 25000

This is a 36 exposure roll of T-Max P3200 Professional Film from Kodak. It is an ISO 3200, continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film that combines high speed with finer grain than that of other fast black-and-white films.

Film Basics
  • Excellent sharpness and shadow detail, fine grain
  • Quality prints from moderately under- or overexposed negatives
  • Better highlight separation
  • Expanded Exposure Latitude
  • Greater forgiveness with overexposure errors
  • Type 35mm black and white negative film
    Speed ISO 3200
    Applications Very fast action
    Dimly lighted scenes where you can't use flash
    Subjects that require good depth of field combined with fast shutter speeds
    Handholding telephoto lenses for fast action or in dim light
    Indoor or nighttime sports events and available-light press photography
    Law-enforcement and general surveillance applications that require exposure indexes of 3200 to 25000
    Process T-Max, T-Max RS, X-Tol, D-76, HC-110, Duraflo RT
    Color Saturation Not applicable
    Grain Fine
    Sharpness High
    Exposure Latitude Very wide
    Push/Pull Can be pushed/pulled from 3200 to 25,000 - Underexposing by three stops and using three-stop push-processing produces a further increase in contrast, graininess and additional loss of shadow detail. The results will be acceptable for some applications

      It took me a little experimenting with this film to figure out the best exposure and development. Currently I am using it rated at approximately 1600 ASA. The development took some trial and error as I use Barry Thornton's 2 bath method. You can download the Kodak film data sheet for instructions on the more common developers. I am getting crisp telephoto action shots with pretty good tonal range - far better than I expected. When enlarged the grain is also finer than I expected. In short I am delighted.

      I've shot Delta Pro 3200 @ 1600. Decided to try Kodak. Since it's TMax, I'll shoot it 3200.

      I shoot mainly slides, and felt I should try some higher ISO, and probably new subjects.

          I don't shoot high ISO B&W much but when I do I turn to T-Max 3200.

          A very unique high speed B&W perfect for low available light capture. The grain and contrast really give this film the look and mood that I like.

          Unfortunately Kodak recently discontinued this film. It is still available for now. I will missed it when is gone.

                  I enjoy taking pics of working musicians and most of the club venues where I shoot are dimly lit. The T-Max P3200 allows me to work in some of these settings with out a flash. Not only am I able to take images that are 'in the moment' and have a 'truer' feel of the environment but the musicians much appreciate the absence of a 'FLASH!' While [wet darkroom] prints definitely have a grainier quality than those from lower speed films its a small price to pay.

                          I have 'wandered off" to other brands of super-fast B&W film but have always come back to this one because of its reliability, flexibility, controlled grain and availability. You can't beat it for night work.

                            This film is really great when I used it with my canon ae-1 camera! For my photo class we were assigned to use this film and capture night life..I went out on the streets and shot away! Even with super low light the pictures came out clear with detail!

                                I used this film for my friend's wedding to take mostly indoor photos. Although it is impossible to avoid "grainy" images from high sensitivity films, I like the mood by capturing many emotional moment from the wedding events. Like other TMAX films the images are somewhat contrasty but it seems to have wide tonal range as well. With higher f-number, I also were able to taking many pictures more in focus due to larger depth of field. With faster shutter speed, I could avoid shaking of camera/blurred images indoor event like dancing or reception event. Although price is somewhat expensive, I would like to try this film again when I need to take pictures indoors.

                                    I am a third generation photographer and if I could only carry one film it would be the Kodak 3200. Reliable and good at speeds from 800 on forward you can count on it.

                                    Good stable, consistent film. Good results even when pushed to 12,800!

                                        Being ISO- 3200, this film is extremely grainy, which looks very beautiful if shot properly and with that in mind. Definitely process in Rodinal 1:25. This film also needs to be overexposed when being shot.

                                              This film certainly has visible grain, but it is nice and sharp making for atmospheric photos. The speed is pretty good (rated at 1250 or so) in DDX or Xtol and it is comparable to Delta 3200 but with a touch less speed and crunchier grain.

                                                  Leave this in your camera when you are only planning on taking intermittent shots - the next time you pick up your camera it may be candlelight. This describes 95% of my film use - intermittent shots that catch my eye.

                                                  This will, when pushed, end up grainy. I like that.

                                                  Great film. I usually use it inside with fairly low light levels. It's grainy, but it's a look that I'm looking for too!

                                                        I've shot Delta Pro 3200 @ 1600. Decided to try Kodak. Since it's TMax, I'll shoot it 3200.

                                                        I shoot mainly slides, and felt I should try some higher ISO, and probably new subjects.

                                                          My photography professor told me to try out the Kodak 3200 ISO pushed film. It worked great, especially for my photography portfolio. Printing took less time than pushing 400 iso film myself, and the film came out great!

                                                            I'm pretty new to night time photographing, but this film has been a major help. Be sure to shoot a practice roll first under a wide variety of lighting conditions to reduce the amount of film you might waste during the adjustment period.
