    Anyone have examples of Provia 400X pushed that they would like to share? I have read some that people have tried this so would like to see what it looks like.

    Thanks!

    I have had Provia 400X pushed once. All I can say is that contrast gets steeper quite a bit. You have to exposure very carefully or the shadows will block. If used for evenly lit scenes it works pretty well and you will barely recognize any difference from exposure at box speed. Grain gets a bit more pronounced though...

    That's a very nice image too. I see that the tricky part is when to know pushing the film is OK. Sounds tough!
