    Shot ISO 160 film as ISO 400, should I trash it?

    Please don't laugh!

    I have shot two rolls of 35mm ISO 160 film last week. The camera was set to ISO 400, should I trash the two rolls? Is sending it to the lab a waste of money?

    Thanks!

    Which film?

    What sort of light - flash, contrasty sun, high overcast, ... ??

    What sort of subject - portraits, product shots, landscapes, birthday parties?

    In my experience, unless it's slide film, it should be fine. 1-2 stop underexposure won't kill color negative film...in fact, might make it quite saturated depending on the film itself.

    Ha! Try harder. Maybe 3200. No, certainly don't trash it. You might have lost some shadows, but definitely worth processing.

    You are right... Here you are:Fuji 400H, 35mm. No flash. I have used them during an engagement session. Shadow, no contrasty sun.

    You mean Fuji Pro 160S?

    It may very well deliver better results than 400H @ 400 anyway :P

    Why you don't ask the lab to push them +1 stop , recently at our lab we devlop portra 160 push +2 1/2 stop with
    very good result contrast go up a bit.

    Thanks Chamon

    Agree, a +1 stop push is nothing really, a good lab should be able to do this.

    I join the choir here, get them pushed +1 in development and you'll probably be happily surprised how good it looks!




    Some time ago I shot a cpl of rolls APX 100, thinking it was HP5+ 400, on EI 1600 (they came from an unmarked bulk loader and the previous owner told me it was HP5+ in it)..

    When I found out I had not yet developed the rolls and managed to actually at least get something on almost all frames, I'm not saying I'd recommend this, but I'm sure there's a bunch of people who'd call the pictures great modern art....
