I did not know that. Good info, thanks!

I don't know if there have been any ISO 3200 films, as opposed to EI 3200, but I'd think for a film to be that sensitive, it'd need grain the size of dinner plates.

The important thing is to try it. You're in the US, film's cheap as hell over there (Tri-X is, what, four bucks a roll?)

Film's entirely subjective. But pushing's handy, and cheaper. A roll of Tri-X here is about $9, but TMZ or Delta 3200 is about $16.*

(Granted, the prices probably work out the same across the Pacific, but it's the psychology that gets me. The Big Mac Index.)

Sometimes big chunky grain can add to the appeal of a shot

sorry, no 1600, only 3200 shots here

Tir-X 400 pushed to 3200 in D76 developer (note this was done in 1986/7) At the time development data suggested 30 minutes at 20C
