Hello guys, i have one more question about Push... i'm starting my final short in the Moscow film school... All scenes are at night. The stock is Fuji 400 Eterna, but it's only about 200 iso. The question is basically is : can i get some unusual look from this process, more saturation, contrast or something else... Or it all is only about exposition and grain? (the point is not to get more exposition)

Err, Eterna 400T is 400 ASA... hence why it's called 400T.

If you push one stop, you'll get more grain, plus some more contrast, some color shift in the blacks, some lift in base fog, but it's not extreme enough to be called a special look unless you start pushing a lot, like by two-stops. Also, Eterna 400T is a muted stock with less color and contrast, so in some ways, a one-stop push just makes it look more like other stocks. I'd guess that you'd see more interesting and unusual results heavily pushing a saturated stock like Fuji 160T Vivid.

Not unless you need more grain or more density. You can monkey with contrast and color in post.
