Developing 1600 speed film?

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Gregory L. Hansen, Mar 25, 2006.

  1. I just talked with a guy who thought there might be problems with
    developing 1600 speed film at the usual retail minilabs, and he said that
    some places even charge more for it. But I thought if it said C-41 on the
    can (and it did), then it should be able to go through the same process
    that all the other film goes through.

    What was he talking about?

    No idea. I've never had any problems developing 1600 at Ritz/Wolf.

    There should be no problem, it (C-41) is all developed the same.

    The only thing that comes to mind is if he was talking about push

    Actual ISO 1600 film, or film pushed to ISO 1600?

    The former **shouldn't** be a problem, the latter might be.

    The average minilab probably doesn't get much ISO 1600 film, and the kid
    behind the counter may not know what to do with it, but the machine
    should be able to handle it.

  5. Actual ISO 1600 film. It said so on the can. I didn't think to ask him
    about pushing, but I don't think he did that. Push processing would
    definately be a problem-- I've asked a few labs and none of them could do
