    I sometimes push, just to see what I'll end up with and for the experiment, I rarely push for necessity actually

    I shoot box speed. I have not had a reason to push film, even to available light photography. It is a tool which I may have to use at some time, so I do not rule it out.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I like the fact that Kodak's recommendation for TMY is to use the same development for EI 400 and EI 800.

    So when I am unsure of light levels, I will use 800 when necessary, and 400 when 800 isn't required, and avoid push development.

    Unless of course the light is really flat, in which case I will develop longer, but that isn't a push, it is N+1 or N+2

    In my tests with Delta 400 and DD-X and my metering techniques and my subjects and in my normal lighting situations I can shoot from EI 50 to EI 1600 without a change in development. So I don't change development unless I'm adjusting for a print.

    Back in day depends on how far back in the day. In the 40s 50s and 60s flash was the norm, in the 40s and 50s flash bulbs later strobe. By the 60s available light was catching on, for some it was philosophic for other it was pragmatic. Early flash was very harsh, some like Weegee created a style using flash. When I was working in the 70s and early 80s I wanted to travel as light as possible, carrying a tripod and large strobe was not feasible. Also remember that shooting in the field the action was likely to be well out of range of flash and shutter sync was slow 1/60th . It was not uncommon to push tri-x to 800 or 1600, tri-x in the 70s was a different film than the tri-x we shoot today. Recording film had horrible grain, there was no T max until the mid-80s. I carried a quart kit of Dinafine and a packet of fixer to develop on location if needed. Flash made a comeback in the late 70s and 80s when newspapers and magazines moved from black and white to color. Strobe’s improved and with higher shutter speed sync and TTL we had much greater control. In today’s world I seldom push, I use TMax 3200, now Delta 3200.

    Actually the range isn't abnormal. Think about the single use cameras you can get at the grocery store.

    The reason I gave all the caveats is that everybody has different expectations, I am rarely too worried about the deep shadows or extreme highlights. My important subject matter normally has a fairly short scene brightness range in the middle.
