Using diff type of films
is there any diff. when u push a film e.g. ISO 400 to ISO 800 compared to juz using ISO 800 film straight away?
i hear the ISO 800 film will have a smaller grain compared to the pushed ISO 800 film... any other difference??
wat is diff when u use color print film and develop into black & white compared to using black & white film straight away?
thankz greatly for your help in advance...

When you push process your film there is to be expect abit more grain as you mentioned which is true and I find the result tend to be abit more contrasty too. But sometime better that then to shoot at slower speeds. But you also have to take into consideration that difference brand of film and speed can have difference outcome too. Some film has more lattitude and tolerant when you push it and some can get even more grainier, slight colour shift and contrast varied.
