    All film pushes. It will be fine.

    Why don't you just order it in the mail or online?

    Can you recommend a good lab that processes 120mm film in Brussels? I'm looking for E6, C41, and BW processing? Additionally, any places you know of in Brussels that sells 120 film?

    I think Portra 800 is fantastic.

    outdoor sample at 800

    indoor sample probably at 1600

    I also shot Kodak's HD400 rated at 800 a bit. Actually if I only needed ISO800, I shot the HD400 instead since the grain is much finer and the film has plenty of latitude for this. The grain on this consumer film is a smidge finer than the new Portra 400NC and likewise, its much cheaper (~3.50/roll in 3 packs 24exp). I shoot the new Portra 400NC in sheet film and have some in 120. Its nice stuff too.

    HD400 at 400

    HD400 at 800

    And as mentioned earlier, E200 and Provia 400X are both designed to push (with push processing which most labs offer for E-6)
