I wouldn't underexpose BW400CN. It is a C41 film and not a traditional B&W film. In my experience, underexposing resulted in some really dreadfullly muddy negatives. However, I've gotten very nice results shooting it at 200-320 ISO. It is extremely fine-grained for its speed.

If you want to push/pull, I would recommend Tri-X, as it is good for 100-3200 ISO, and that you process the film yourself for full control.

That Petri is one of the best-looking RF's I've seen. Clean, neat, looks like it means business. And a f1.9 45mm colour lens is just icing on the cake.

Does the shutter speed go to 1000?
