Kodak Tri-X pushed to ISO 6400 with excellent results

Recommended Posts

I have pushed Tri-X to ISO 1600 with good results but I never though it was possible to go to 6400 without a serious loss of image quality.  Kodak Tri-X is truly a dynamic and capable emulsion; it's all in the processing...

I am not a big fan of Tri-X at ISO 400, but I also have seen much better results with it when pushed to ISO 3200.

Most of the examples are taken in daylight. Only few in moderate low light and it seems nothing for where I want to push my BW at this speed. I'm not considering it as good enough test.

Years ago at RFF forum someone post the scans from Polypan F (dirt cheap surveillance film) exposed at different speeds and pushed highly under normal light. Results where fine.

I did it as well. If you push film during daylight all you do is overexposing it. And film will forgive it.

 

 

I prefer HP5+. For price, emulsion and handling. Pushing it not for sensational acts of glory on internet among amateurs

, but just using it where it makes sense. Low light, street photography.

      Hello there!
      I have a slight but not to severe problem. I've noticed that my Leica M7 is not able to read the DX code of these two specific films: Fujifilm Superia X-Tra 400 and Fujifilm Fujicolor C200. For these two films I get the ISO value of 5000 and 3200 which are obviously wrong. For example, Fujifilm Pro 400H is working perfectly fine, the ISO detection works without problems. Further I tried several other films like Kodak Ektar 100, Kodak Portra 160 and 400, Ilford FP4+ 125 and so on... and the dx detection worked perfectly fine on every single one of these films. I compared the working ones with the "malfunctioning" films and the only difference I noticed is that the black paint in the dx code is a kind of green, it's not a perfect black, more like a darkish green, definitely not a true black. Could this maybe be the reason?
      The thing is, I've sent my camera to Leitz for a grand- overhaul just 3 weeks back. They changed and renewed a lot of parts including thr DX- reader so the camera is like brand new. Unluckily I've no clue if it had the same problem before it went to Leitz because I've not shot one of these films before.
      It would be a great help if somebody has an answer or maybe a similar problem!

      Regards
      Alex

      I haven't posted for quite some time because being a street photographer when there is virtually nobody on the streets during these crazy times is difficult. This was taken prior to the time when we knew the term COVID-19 in 2017.

      Help! My father recently passed away and I sifted thru his camera closet. I found film, presumably from my grandfather, who was an avid photographer. It is a Leica box with cardboard tubes (see image). These tubes had film in them. Most of the film was tightly rolled, not encased in anything other than the cardboard. There were a couple (3?) that had a metal cartridge around them. I have no idea which camera the film came from. All I know is that one of the rolls was possibly from 1934, as that was written on the bottom of the cardboard tube. 
      What has woken me up in a cold sweat was that I fear that the tight rolls...is it possible that he offloaded the film without developing it? Have I exposed the film by removing it from the tubes in the light? 
      Thanks in advance for any thoughts/ideas on this crazy situation!
