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.

 

HP5+ @3200 at night. Quick, proof JPEG1 scan:

      Paris has always been a special place for street photography for me and, although I haven't been there for far too long, I try and emulate  the work of its' great photographers such as HC-B, Robert Doisneau and (dare I say) Peter Turnley. For me it is like fishing on a great trout stream in that you are always bound to have a good catch.
      This was taken in 2000 using my M6 and Kodak T-Max 400 film home processed. I think it was with the 50mm Summicron lens, although I can't be 100% sure.
