Sorry... I thought you were saying that you could get ISO 50 film's grain on ISO 400 film just by changing the dial.

Haha no, it would look like crap most likely.

That's what I remember from my couple of years with access to a full darkroom back in the '70s. You can shoot negative film in a way not intended, but there are always compromises, whether you develop differently, or print differently. It's about balancing grain contrast and emulsion imperfections and scratches with scene contrast.
