The slowest film I ever used was an Agfaortho 25 developed in Emofin Doku: Iso 12 and sharp as a razor blade. That was 1985.


I used to shoot Kodachrome 25 and 64 when I was in college back in the 1980s. ISO 3200 still feels like magic to me!

I remember pushing rolls of Tri-X to 1600... so ISO-wise, my K10D and Q feel not magical at all.  A K-5II, on the other hand, is magic.
