Quick question, how much can you push ektachrome 100d and still get acceptable result?

I ask because I have a project where I need to shoot color reversal, and since my options are limited...I want to know what I can get away with in situations where lighting is less then ideal.

Thanks!

I have pushed 100d by 2 stops and had what I consider to be acceptable results. Yes, it gets a bit grainy.

Hi Richard
is it possible to do the contrary ? To overexpose and pull-process to lower the grain ?
Regards.

Yes, you can pull process 100d, no problem. I have pulled up to 3 stops for a customer who had a broken light meter and had massively over exposed their film. The grain doesn't become radically reduced by any means. But there is less grain and less contrast, yes.
