    FP4 125 pushed

    I needed some faster film but only had this avaliable.
    I pushed it to iso 800 which i think may be geting to the limit.
    Development time was approx 27 min in 1 + 19 ilford Lc 29
    It is quite grainy but i think it is pleasing. Here are some samples.













    1DIII, 5DII, 15mm fish, 24mm ts-e, 35L,135L,200L,400L,mpe-65mm
    Film: eos 300, pentax 6x7

    I'd be quite happy with the results you've obtained. But I'd suggest keeping some HP5 in the fridge.

    Can't comment in the missing images.

    The background clutter top left in the cat shot is very distracting and the lens distortion does not do it for me.
    The toyota is ok, but the blown sky is a bit overpowering.

    The 2 that I can see, the Toyota and the cat, both look to have handled the push very well, certainly not as much grain as I would have expected

    Note the the FILM forum is not for placing photos for critique. Please place photos in the relevant Member Photos Forums. If this thread continues to get critique of the photos rather than discussion on the Film processing used, I will close it!

    Sorry, my intention was to provide a sample of what the film looked like after process. It is surprisingly hard to find much infromation on pushing this particular film anywhere on the internet

    They too have come up very well Fabian, certainly not as much grain as I would have expected.

    I will not critique the images, but I do like that one of the fly

    Since i have not much experience with pushing I didnt really know how much grain to expect.
    I think they did come out quite well, even though other internet sources said fp4 isnt the best to push more than one stop.
    It is certainly interesting to experiment with these things.
    I did accidentally shoot the same film at 400 in my 6x7, they also came out pretty well.
