Absolutely one of the best film choices for low light situations. Many photographers eschew this fast film due to it graininess (which can be controlled), but through careful experimentation with processing and developer, I have obtained and seen one other photographer obtain results that are comparable to 400 speed film. I really don't think Kodak technician have discovered how to do this yet, but it is possible.

One of the wonders of this film is that it can be pushed to 6400 ISO or pulled to 800 ISO to control the grain:speed ratio. I often shoot this film at 1600 ISO (and process it myself like I would to 1600) and the results are great - the film reproduces low-light images with great contrast and the grain isn't distracting, but rather very appealing.

Don't be afraid to shoot this film at speeds other than 3200 ISO.... just remember which ISO you set it at!
