In our option, this film is the best lowlight film there is.  Its 3200 iso easily allows you to shoot handheld in most lowlight situations.   And while its a high iso film its’ grain is actually pretty fine thanks to the Kodak T-grain – when properly exposed its is less noticeable than a lot of other 400 iso film.  It has high contrast, poppy tones, and very good exposure latitude.  When shooting with this film we recommend rating it at box seed(3200) and when metering, err on over exposure, metering for the shadows.

Not the results I remember from years ago

I had shot several rolls of Tmax 3200 when it first came out and I remember being pleased with the results. My recent rolls of Tmax 3200 were anything but pleasing. The grain is just too much. Most images were also just too flat for my tastes. A few images had decent contrast and those were merely OK. I have no desire to shot this film again.

This was my first roll of black and White, and wow! I love the contrasty, grainy results, and delivered better than I expected! Next time, I think I’ll meter it closer to 2500, as I think I underexposed a few shots, but even then, the results were great! The grain adds so much to the feel of this film, and it is a definite trademark of this film. I can’t wait to shoot more of this!

This film is not as grainy as you’d expect, has good latitude and sharpness. I actually like using it in broad daylight too.
