Reviewing the Kodak T-Max Pro (TMZ 5054) ISO 3200 35 mm


I came across this film by chance. The day I bought it I was not looking for a reel in black and white but… I went home with a Kodak T-Max 3200 (35 mm). I decided to test it out and carried with me the Diana Mini.

Before I started taking pictures like crazy, I tried asking around for any advice. I was told to use a photometer. With such a high ISO, it is quite difficult to get the point to the film. The results, however, impressed me.

If you do not want to burn the photo, I recommend using flash indoors even if it is already well lit or if you want to shoot something that is too close. When you take a picture inside and there is enough light, then you can take pictures without flash:

Despite all the photos burned or too dark, I am satisfied with the results. I really like how the grain is so great in black and white photography. Keep in mind that everything mentioned above refers to the use of a Diana Mini (Aperture: sun – F/11 or cloud – F / 8. Shutter: N – 1/60s and B – bulb).

    T-Max p3200 is probably my most favorite film. I shot 2 rolls with no flash @ the big apple circus in NYC. You can see the results here:…

    I've also pushed this film to the max ISO and have never gotten photos this grainy. I recommend taking this film to a pro lab, or is your confident enough to do it yourself, use kodak XTOL developer and pay close attention to the developing times for the ISO you used.

    I had pretty good results in getting really chunky grain underexposing by a couple of stops and then using XTOL to develop for about 15-20min(depending)
