  1. #1

    Default How far can Kodak's C-41 process B&W film be pushed to?

    Its T400CN or something lidat rite?

    i remember its a ISO400 film but I would want to take pictures in poor light conditions w/o use of flash.

    Is it still good to push till 1600, ie. 2 stops?

    Guys, maybe you like to ask Toto38 about it as he has a C41 machine. Sometimes he will push some films just for experimental usage.

    From my knowledge, using a 400 ISO FILM and push to 1600, will cause the film to have a rather super high grain look with less tonal range. It will appear more like a high contrast film in the end.

    Drop by our studio if you need to push your film.

    I was at Ruby's yesterday.

    The uncle inside(dunno his name) said the colour -ve cant be pushed.

    I ended getting HP5(ISO400) but pushed 2 stops(to ISO1600).
    Havent developed yet.
