About Kodak P3200

KODAK T-MAX P3200 Professional Film is a multi-speed continuous-tone panchromatic black-and-white negative film that combines high to ultra-high film speeds with finer grain than that of other fast black-and-white films. It is especially useful for very fast action; for dimly lighted scenes where you can't use flash; for subjects that require good depth of field combined with fast shutter speeds; and for handholding telephoto lenses for fast action or in dim light. It is an excellent choice for indoor or nighttime sports events and available-light press photography, as well as law-enforcement and general surveillance applications that require exposure indexes of 3200 to 25,000.

The Kodak P3200 is commonly used for Action shots, Photojournalism, Sports photography and more.The Kodak P3200 is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Semi-pro photographer among others.The Kodak P3200 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Kodak P3200: Accurate, Consistent and Scans well

Kodak P3200 Features

  • KODAK T-GRAIN Emulsion that reshapes pebble-like crystals into a tabular form with more surface to catch light
  • Allows films with extremely fine grain to be made faster; high-speed films have finer grain. T-MAX Professional Films offer the best of both worlds: high speed and fine grain.
  • Improved sharpness
  • Maintains subject detail in prints at higher degrees of magnification than conventional films.
  • Expanded exposure latitude
  • Greater "forgiveness" with overexposure errors; quality prints from moderately under- or overexposed negatives.
  • Better highlight separation.
  • Improved reciprocity at long and short exposure times
  • Less compensation required than with conventional films.
  • 120-size film coated on a thicker (4.7-mil) base than other black-and-white roll films
  • Improved dimensional stability; easier darkroom handling.
  • Virtually no difference between the daylight and tungsten film speeds
  • No need to adjust exposure for different light sources.
  • More responsive to zone-system development changes
  • Smaller time adjustments needed.
  • No increase in processing time required for one-stop "push" with most developers
  • No need to segregate one-stop-pushed film from normally exposed film. You can mix normal exposures and one-stop-pushed exposures on the same roll. (You may want to use paper one-half grade higher in contrast to print one-stop-pushed exposures.)
  • Less development-time increase required for film pushed by two or more stops
  • Saves processing time.
  • Processed in standard developers, including KODAK T-MAX Developer and KODAK T-MAX RS Developer and Replenisher
  • No need for a special developer. You can process T-MAX Professional Films with other black-and-white films.
  • T-MAX P3200 Professional Film-- speeds ranging from high to ultra high
  • Allows photography in situations where it was previously impossible.

TMAX 3200

By

from glendale, ca.  -  Photo Enthusiast

When I desire a high grain effect, I use TMAX 3200. It's great film, but unfortunately has been discontinued. I was pleased that this vendor still had some TMAX 3200 to offer customers.

Think "LIFE Magazine" look

By

from Orange County, CA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It's a very grainy black and with film. The best way to describle is to think of Life magazine and the black and white photos with high contrast. That's it! Sadly they no longer make this film anymore.

Great film in digital age

By

from sunnyvale  -  Photo Enthusiast

I shot primarily on digital camera and i admit i did lot of post processing to achieve film look. then i realized why to fake it when i can make it. So I bought film camera(Olympus OM4) and used this film.I always take my camera to any event.This time I shot birthday party of my friend with my new OM4 without flash. I shot on the speed 3200 as mentioned on film, the rsults were spot on. This film is gorgeous (yes it has lot of grain) but that gives artistic look. So i would recommend this film.if you like pictures in Life megazine on some celebrity in his old time and you like the look this is the film...

Luscious Film

By

from Southwest United States  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This film is truly luscious. Other high speed films can get very, very grainy----Kodak P3200 is absolutely beautiful. I use it for dark interiors and scenes and it has always given me amazing results. I wish it were less expensive, but will gladly continue to pay for it. By far, my favorite film (and I only shoot film).

Excellent Low Light Film!

By

from Summerville, SC  -  Professional

I've used this film any time I needed to shoot for a metal or punk band. The higher grain, especially if the film is beyond its expiration, is typically met with enthusiasm by heavy metal bands and the ilk.

Excellent Low-Light Medium

By

from Centerville, OH  -  Professional

This film is a MUST for shooting indoor fast moving subjects such as sports, concerts, etc., where flash is prohibited. Push this to 12,800 (2 stops) and you will get shots the digital boys can only dream of. This is the playing field where a decent film camera will trump a digital costing (literally!) ten times as much.

Best High Speed Black and White Film

By

from Los Angeles, CA  -  Professional

I am one of the few who still shoot with film and I use the Tmax 3200 film for the photojournalistic element of my wedding shoots. I pull the ISO down to 2500 or even 2000 to obtain a denser negative and I can still shoot without a flash and get the types of shots I want.
