What is the difference between ISO 100 and 400 film?

What is the difference between ISO 100 and 400 film?

In general, the inherent “graininess” of a film increases with its ISO, so ISO 400 films are grainier than ISO 100 films, and ISO 1600 or 3200 films typically show noticeable grain in large-diameter enlargements, and won’t be able to capture quite as much fine detail as slower films.

Is ISO 100 or 400 better?

ISO most often starts at the value of ISO 100. This is the lowest, darkest setting, also called the base ISO. The next full stop, ISO 200, is twice as bright, and ISO 400 is twice as bright than that.

Can you push HP5?

You can also push HP5 for different results. The more you push this film, the more grain you’ll see. If you want bright whites and true blacks, I recommend pushing the film one or two stops.

Can you push HP5 to 3200?

Turns out it handles it pretty well. The grain is pleasing and the blacks are inky. The contrast is manageable when there is a lot of available light. If you have a roll laying around I highly recommend cranking the ISO on your meter (in camera or external) to 3200 and get going.

What is HP5 plus 400 film stock?

Ilford HP, or Hypersensitive Panchromatic, transitioned to the current HP5 Plus 400 in 1989 and remained unchanged. Why fix what isn’t broken?
