    Negative film, I was always impressed by Fuji Press800. Not sure if it's around anymore or has a new version out now. It was nicely grained, great colour and pushed amazingly well.

    I have a box of 40 or 60 still around, actually. Back when my newspaper shot colour neg film, that was the hands-on choice.

    Doesn't Fuji make an ISO 1600 press film?

    I have no idea what you mean by "PGI."

    Print Grain Index. Kodak seems to use that measurement to indicate grain size for print films instead of RMS these days.

    Good labs will push. My local lab charges an extra 2 euros, and you usually have to wait until the end of the day instead of the normal 1-2 hours. Yes, I consider myself lucky to live near this lab.

    If you want to do it yourself, it is done by increasing the time in the first (B&W) developer.

    Yes, they do.

    I get better results (from a technical perspective) by overdeveloping the 800, though.

    The 1600 is very neat, but extremely clumpy looking.

    If you need the extra stop, though, it can help.

    Against my better judgement I used a Fuji disposable camera loaded with some 1600 film and the results actually were kind of nice (yes I said it. The only time I have ever like a Fuji film!) since they had a neat vintage look to them.

    I'm keen to try E200 pushed to 800 after reading this thread. I've had great success with Provia 400X at 800 and I'd like to see how the Ektachrome compares. Unfortunately, E200 in 35mm seems quite difficult to get hold of in the UK...

    It can be quite hard to get here in the US as well. I could not find it ANYWHERE here in Sacramento, and ended up picking some up when I was down in Berkeley (about 90 miles away).

    Any thoughts on how well Ektachrome 400x pushes to 800? I just acquired 400 feet of it, late '05 expiration, well stored...I'm going to have to figure out what to do with all of it...
