According to a Facebook post by Kodak Professional, the Facebook page of Kodak Alaris, Kodak is bringing back the T-Max P3200 Black & White negative film.
“Film is our heritage and we remain committed to meeting the evolving needs of today’s film shooters,” said Dennis Olbrich, President – Kodak Alaris Imaging Paper, Photo Chemicals and Film in an official press release after CES 2017. As it appears, Kodak Alaris is making strong investments and deep measures to bring back professional film stocks that their audience desires.
With the introduction of this film stock, Kodak Alaris is now re-entering the market of multi-speed films competing with other professional film stocks such as Ilford Delta 3200 Black and White film, Fuji Superia 1600, Kodak Portra 800, and more.
Kodak Alaris already shows the film stock on their website, but there is no current information on where to get the film or how to place special orders. You can find the full list of Kodak Alaris film stocks here.
You can now find the Kodak TMZ 135-36 T-Max P3200 B&W Print Film on B&H Photo available for order at a price of $8.99.
What is Kodak TMAX P3200?
