Did anybody rated 5218/5229 or fuji at 2000ASA? How do you calibrate a meter? Is there any brand of lightmeter specificaly made for low light conditions?
Also, after pushing the stock for 2 stops, did anybody make sensitometry, check D minimum and compare it to standard processing. Can you post the results or send me an email with the curves. seo@adelphia.net
I know, there is a lot of questions but I have to start somewhere. I did extensive testing 20 years ago between AgfaGevert, Eastman and Fuji with surprising results. But that was a Century ago.
Today, I don't even know if Deluxe or Fotokem makes wedges.
Thank you,
Seo

For 5218 rated at EI-2000, I suggest only using a push-1 process. Remember, a push process does not really give much of a true speed increase, so expect to see loss of shadow detail and increased graininess. A push-2 process tends to make any film a bit too harsh in upper scale contrast, and increases the grain even more --- but maybe that's the "look" you want.
