Kevin, Happy New Year to you too. I think with more 'regular' ASA400 film the push to 800 is not a big deal, and the results better than with the Foma. From what I've read and see for myself, the Foma 400 really is more like Foma 320 and it doesn't push well.

Kodak, Ilford and Fuji's development instructions all say that develop 800 the same as 400, so shooting a roll at 800 won't make any difference to the development.

From what I've read, Foma 400 has an actual speed of 160 on something like Rodinal and maybe 250 on a fast developer. But the people who said that like to be conservative :P HP5 and 400TX would probably be just fine at 800.
Nesster and Brkl, thanks for the quick responses. Looks like it would pay to read the data sheets on the films I'm using. Like so much of photography, it seems as if this will will be trial-and-error, too; give it a shot and see if you like the results.

Best,
Kevin

An example of when photography lies optimistically: the morning was really very dark, but through the magic of photography, the illumination was found.

Yashica TL Electro-X, Yashinon DX 35/2.8, Fuji 400H that started out in an Olympus Sylus which became inoperative, then spent months in the canister till I teased the leader back out. I'd completely forgotten what camera the film was originally in :roll:

Great shots, very "painterly". The girl on the beach (in the poster on the side of the phone booth) looks a bit cold.

I agree that is a very nice shot.

Cheers,

You guys. OMG you guys. I was so happy with how Neopan 1600 turned out in Xtol 1+1. Okay, granted I can't actually say what El I shot it at since I mostly just used a flash and cranked the aperture down to f16. All shot with Mir-20M. The lens is so wide the flash was usually pointed straight upwards, which didn't work in all shots but was usually pretty good.

This is me and my dad developing some APX100, APX400 and Tmax-400 in Rodinal -- very badly! They turned out pretty terrible because I'm not used to juggling several canisters with different times.





Christmas, no flash, wide open at f3.5.




New year's eve!



Delta 3200 @ 3200 erm... didn't turn out so hot. Can't remember which camera and lens I used here.

Ended up spending New Year's Eve (as usual) in the City of Brotherly Love. And as usual, I was up waaay to early on New Year's Day with a headache and serious "jones" to go shoot some photos. The light was pretty marginal, so I ended up having to play with the EV comp on my ME Super and it didn't fail me. I love that little camera and it's become my "go to" film body - I have K1000<s> and a ZX-5n at my disposal, but most times, I reach for the ME Super...

brkl, really enjoyed your B&Ws, particularly you and your dad developing film. Nice series all the way 'round - good to see how somebody else celebrates the holidays.

Best,
Kevin

Kevin, thanks for the Philly pics - I went to school there and for years dreamt I was still walking around... only the places had changed. Later I returned to Philly for real, and saw that I'd seen the new buildings in my dreams.

Nesster, you're very welcome. Really glad you enjoyed the photos. I'm not much of a city guy - NYC always sets my teeth on edge, but Boston and particularly Philadelphia always seem to feel like home. The first time I drove into Philadelphia on the "Surekill" I had the oddest sense of deja vu and felt like I was coming home (even though I had never been there before). It's a great city and I envy you the time you got to spend there.

Best,
Kevin

You should do some work spotting these, or cleaning em and rescanning... I think they are really cool photos, everything works together.

This shot just reminded me...you had posted a similar shot of the pilings (maybe even from the same roll) from a different angle that I meant to comment on; it was a fantastic shot - unfortunately, I'm not sure which thread you posted it to. I just went for a quick pass through the past couple of days on this thread and didn't find it <darn>. Otherwise I would have quoted it here. This shot evokes the same sort of atmosphere - thought that leaps to mind is the time and effort involved in driving those pilings.

Best,
Kevin
