Kodak Alaris brings back T-MAX P3200!
ROCHESTER, N.Y. February 23, 2018 Kodak Alaris announced today that it is bringing back KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX P3200 Film / TMZ, a multi-speed panchromatic black-and-white negative film. While the nominal film speed of P3200 TMZ is ISO 800, the "P" means it's designed to be push processed to EI 3200 or higher. This film excels when shooting in low light or when capturing fast action. It is ideally suited for handheld street scene photography, night work, and in dimly lit venues where you can't use flash.
"It's no secret that we've been looking for opportunities to expand our portfolio" said Dennis Olbrich, President — Kodak Alaris Paper, Photo Chemicals and Film. "Darkroom photography is making a comeback, and B&W Film sales are clearly on a positive trajectory. Given these very encouraging market trends, we believe P3200 TMZ will be a great addition to our lineup".
Kodak Alaris plans to offer KODAK PROFESSIONAL T-MAX P3200 Film in 135-36x format. Shipments to Distributors and Stockhouse dealers will begin in March in the U.S., with other regions around the world following shortly thereafter.

Adox Lupex Contact Paper
A brand new paper, currently only available in Germany, Adox Lupex is a slow speed contact fiber paper made with a silver chloride emulsion, similar to Kodak Azo or Fomalux.
Unlike traditional papers designed for enlarging, contact paper is designed for placing a large-format negative directly on the surface of the paper. Lupex's slow speed allows for greater control of exposure and provides more time to burn or dodge.
