If ever forced to give up ALL of my gear, this would probably be the combo I would hold onto.
…Otherwise known as “accidental scientific discovery”.
Did you know that Eastman 5222 could be pushed to ISO 800?
Well I didn’t…at least not until I shot and developed this roll. Which I assumed was either Ilford HP5+, or Ilford Pan F+. (Yes, one was ISO 400, and the other ISO 50). Anyway, I was pretty sure it was HP5+, so I shot and developed it at ISO 800. Using the Neopan 400 times. Because I also had a roll of that in there.
(Listen don’t ask—My system sucks…I know that).
Suffice it to say, this is Eastman 5222 pushed to, and developed at ISO 800. These photos have zero artistic merit, but I thought I’d put them up here for the public record. They are developed in D76 1:1–if you want to do so, use the Fuji Neopan 400 @ ISO 800 times.
I hope that even makes sense.
