    For B&W and digital, it is best to under-exposed than to over-exposed the images ..

    You may not be able to recover the lost details, however you can shift the curve ....
    Har? underexpose it? negative so thin, how to print?

    Anyway, all negatives are better overexpose than underexpose it.

    Underexposing a B&W film will lead to poor shadows details. And no amount of "pushing" will help.
    about 13 stops latitudes, who can compete? Anyone want to start shooting B/W?
