Replacement for 2475 Recording film? : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread

Has anyone come up with a way to get the look of 2475? Pushing just loses too much shadow detail and the current 3200 films just do not have the look, at least not in the developers I have tried. I still have a dozen or so rolls in the freezer and will be trying to come up with a suitable replacement before they are gone. Any help would be appreciated.

Kenneth, You may try 1600 or 3200 ISO films overexposed for a couple of stops, or even more, developed in Rodinal, HC-110 or something alike. Good luck.

You might try one of the current fast films developed in Dektol (D- 72). Probably not quite the same grain structure, but it might get you closer. Calumet included a blurb on this a couple years ago in a flier.
