Went to see a friend's band last night and brought my Pentax 645NII. I loaded Tri-X and planned to push two stops to 1600. With a 200mm F4 lens wide open I was shooting 1/30 hand held and hoping like hell I could get something usable.

My usual routine is HC-110. 1:50 for 8 minutes, invert four times every minute. So for two extra stops I went for 16 minutes and it seemed to work out. Here are a few samples of how it turned out:

There were a handful of photographers shooting digital at high ISOs. I've seen some great shots but I'm happy with how mine turned out as I feel they have a much different look to them.

Also shot half a roll of chrome (Provia 400X) it will be interesting to see how that comes out when I get it processed.
