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.  

 

Here are the results from our first test roll of @Kodak TMAX P3200! To say we’re impressed is an understatement – this film is so good! It’s grain is beautifully subtle and surprisingly fine, it has good contrast but still retains decent detail in the shadows, and the tones are great, especially in lowlight. Being a 3200sio film, P3200 excels in lowlight and in our opinion is better Tri-X pushed 3 stops – so if you’re looking for a great lowlight B&W film, we highly recommend P3200! These were all shot at box speed

My two favorite B&W films are Tri-X for everyday shooting and TMAX p3200 for lowlight shooting. This film has incredibly fine grain for being 3200 iso and is surprisingly good in bright daylight as well. I always shoot it at box speed(3200) and meter for the shadows. It has amazing tones and I love its’ strong contrast!
