    Pushing HP5+ with Pyrocat HC

    Am shooting sports in 35mm & wondering about using Sandy King's Pyrocat HD for pushing the film to 1600 & 3200.

    Anyone with real world experience or results using this combination?

    Before the usual "poor results" types crop up, I am not looking for the same results I get with FP4+ in 8x10. I am shooting sports in gyms lit seemingly by candlelight and want sharpness that cuts. If the Pyrocat HD will work I will use it... simplifying the darkroom a bit more by not having to keep acufine on hand.

    I'm not trying to be a "'poor results' type" but I've never tried it, assuming that it wouldn't significantly boost the lows, and just add contrast.

    Have you tried Microphen?

    (edit: ah - never mind, I see you're already using something else and want to simplify. Sorry - got to clear the cobwebs and read more carefully...)
