    Has anyone tried? Yes, Fuji makes Provia 400X. But I just don't like the way it performs vs Kodak chromes under fluorescent lighting for handheld indoor shots.

    Is that with our without FL-DAY filter?

    Anyway, I doubt EliteChrome is very pushable, but Kodak claims E200 pushes well up to EI 800.

    Using a filter would kind of defeat the purpose. In any case, isn't Elite 200 basically just the non-professional version of E200 (similar to KR64 s PKR64)?

    You can push it as much as you want, the question is the results. You will get reduced DMAX and higher contrast. I would experiment, shoot a roll of test images, EI 200, 400, 800, 1600, push accordingly, and compare.
