    The Massive Development Chart indicates up to 800ASA. Have fun. --ew--

    Thank you all for your comments!

    One had mentioned for me to describe the kind of quality I was going for, I'm really not going for anything special. I just have a few more sheets and wanted to see if it could handle being pushed to 400 for example for easier use in the studio.

    Thanks!

    You might like it or not... Mainly, it will produce a slightly different "look", and slightly different apparent sharpness (harder, fine grain looks different)... Every push/pull stop will have a slightly different look, so to match a series look, one would have to settle for one... Speed for LF will not matter much, as a tripod will be used, and pushing will "push" the highlight region, but the threshold is the box speed, so for max shadow detail, you still have to shoot box speed, go no real gain unless you like the look (or going for an "effect")...

    Ilford has tech sheets for pushing their films on their site...
