Recently, I shot some Vision 50D at a wedding with my Canon 1014E. Usually, I'm pretty careful with my metering but I think I may have been a bit careless on this occasion and underexposed it a bit in some parts. Obviously, not good for negative film. I know the camera will overexpose the cartridge but only slightly - about 1/3 of a stop, right? To try and 'save' the film, I was thinking of getting the film pushed by about a stop in developing. 

 

Just curious if anyone here has had 50D pushed (and by a similar amount)? This is the first time that Ive shot 50D so I was looking forward to the fine grain structure and punchy colours. Obviously, pushing the film will lead to an increase in grain and contrast though would the changes be that noticeable with a one stop push?

One stop under is really nothing when it comes to motion picture film; sure you can give it a push, why not? See how it suits you. Grain tolerance is generally a personal preference in terms of how big a deal it is and noticing it or contrast will very much so depend on the monitor you're looking at.
