Kodak T-Max 3200 @1600………

Nikon FM2n - T-Max 3200@1600 -  img024I was given a couple of rolls of Kodak T-max 3200 a while back and after reading up on the internet that the true iso is closer to 1000-1200 iso I thought I would shoot a roll at 1600 to hopefully minimise the grain.

Nikon FM2n - T-Max 3200@1600 -  img029Yesterday was a pretty bright day so shooting outside at 1600 iso required some pretty high shutter speeds especially when I tried to open the Aperture a bit for some shallow DOF shots but my Nikon FM2n can shoot up to 4000 sec.

Nikon FM2n - T-Max 3200@1600 -  img028I developed the film in my new ilfotec HC developer and was well happy with the results.

I have shot ilford Delta 3200 at the rated speed and found the grain and contrast to be a little to strong for my taste (and I love contrasty images) so the results here were very pleasing.

Nikon FM2n - T-Max 3200@1600 -  img022Plenty of shadow detail and the highlights seemed pretty good to.

I will try my ilford 3200 at 1600 next time and compare the results I suspect that they will be very similar and as Kodak have stopped T-Max 3200 ilford is the way to go.

  1. Tim,
    Very nice. The images are very nicely done with no grain to speak of (course I am looking through the computer). I very seldom use that fast of film. Might have to give it a try. We always shoot HP5 at 200 and develop for 400 and get really fine grain. The shadow detail of the gate is excellent. Keep up the good work

    • Thanks Marks, I only shot it as it was given to me free.
      The grain is great on the full scans and I a very pleased with the sharpness also considering it was 35mm.
      I have a couple of rolls of ilford 3200 in 120 format and will be testing them too.
