View Full Version : Agfa APX 400 pushed to 3200
I was given this film for testing its push capability with Kodak Pro developer 1:4.
I estimated 12 minutes at 20 degree C, but :bang: I think I missed it. Attached samples. Applied toning filter. Let me know what you think
I like the first shot, its kinda nice. I'm not keen on the second shot, too noisy for the subject.
I don't know if this film takes push-processing that much. It can be pushed to ISO 1600, from what I've read, but taking it to 3200...
Oh, well, you still managed something. Like Ash, I think the first is fine... and very grainy. It has the look of a very old collodion print to me.
Thank you. The Massive Dev chart b-w site gave me the chance, but I think the time must be 20 minutes.....
Bessa R with scopar 35/2.5 shot.
Also the roll have expiration date of Jan. 2007.
I agree that the first one is nice, in fact I like it a lot. 20 min. might give you a bit more tonal range, but I seriously doubt you'll get much more in shadow detail. I don't know that developer at all, so who knows.
The expiration date should have nothing to do with your results, unless storage conditions were very bad.
