Good film, a little too grainy.,
This review is from: Kodak P3200 TMAX Professional ISO 3200, 35mm, 36 Exposures, Black and White Film (Electronics)
You know, I've come to really appreciate the TMAX films in recent years. Being "newer" in creation, they are rather advanced and offer great sharpness, contrast and dynamic range. The 3200 is no exception in the right conditions with one huge gaping flaw: it is a film made for low-light, yet I find that it performs less than optimally in low-light. The grain is TOO evident for my tastes, and really gives your shots a dated look.
There are some circumstances where you have no choice but high ISO film, but in my experience I would recommend Ilford DELTA 3200 Professional, Black and White Print Film, 135 (35 mm), ISO 3200, 36 Exposures (1887710) - it retains the sharpness and contrast offered by Kodak's TMAX, but is significantly less grainy!
That said, I find TMAX is more forgiving in the darkroom so there are some trade-offs!
