After a prolonged hiatus, Eastman 5222 is back in the arsenal. This is pushed to ISO 400 (rather than 250 base) and developed in D76.
…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.
Anyone else feel like this today?
Taken with the Nikon F100 on the 105mm f/1.4E
Being an “E” lens (Electronic aperture) the Nikon F100 cannot actuate the blades. As such, it can only be shot wide-open…but metering and autofocus work just fine. Stay tuned for more filmy goodness.
(…and keep the faith friends!)
Found this roll sitting in my office; Don’t remember when it was taken, or what camera was used. I do remember the day though. Almost developed these as colour (would not have worked at all!!) because the film was bulk-loaded into a Superia canister. Fortunately I realized there was tape on the very end, and figured out what it actually was.
It is always fun to find forgotten pictures.
