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.
I love this film!!!
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!
Nothing but love
This film is not as grainy as you’d expect, has good latitude and sharpness. I actually like using it in broad daylight too.
This is a great indoor hanging out with friends film. I love the grain and it is SUPER tolerant in Rodinal.
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!
