Hi,

 

My 2nd AC mistakingly mislabeled the film magazine as 5207 which we later found out was 5203.

What a bummer.

 

This whole time we were shooting, we were underexposing the film by a full 2 stops.

We have not developed the film.

 

What's the right way to go about this?

 

Should we push the film 1 stop (which won't affect the loss in shadow detail) and then correct the rest in the D.I?

Or don't push the film at all?

 

Thank you

Sure, I'd try that, push one stop and correct the rest in post.  At least you won't have too much grain from underexposing a 50 ASA film, probably mainly some loss of shadow detail.
