1120 XE P3200 Seattle 9I want to increase my use of the 28mm focal length. I find it a bit more difficult than 50mm to shoot but I think under the right circumstances and with lots of practice I will learn how to make dynamic images. On New Year’s day, I loaded my Nikon FA with Kodak Tmax P3200 and rated it at 1600. I attached the Nikon 28mm 2.8d lens to the camera. I developed the film in HC-110(1:31) for 9 minutes, 15 seconds @20C. I scanned the images with the PrimeFilm XE film scanner.

  1. You already seem to be at home with the 28mm. The fact that people might have been thinking you had been photographing something else also helps. That must be very difficult, if not impossible, with a 50mm.
    I wonder why you rated the film at 1600. Was it past its best before date or you opted for less grain or …?

    1. I had to be too careful exposing at 3200. When I shoot on the street it is easy to miss exposure at times by a stop or more and I find underexposing a problem when shooting at 3200. I love the film at 800 and tolerate it at 1600. I think Kentmere 400 pushed 2 stops looks better than this film at 1600. Some love the film because of the grain. If I had no other film to shoot I would make it work to my satisfaction when shooting and developing.
