Hey hobbes, that is exactly what I did Film was underexposed and then scanned and then pushed and I saw lots and lots of grain.

So, I think my question is answered then, thanks a lot! I will try to expose the film at lower ISO. The reason why I wondered was that I get beautiful, almost grainless results with the TMAX100 in HC-110 and that made me wonder how on earth my ADOX ART50 got so grainy and 'ugly'.

Thanks!
