The real "ASA" is the one printed on the box. Pushing only increases
the slope of the curve, i.e. it ups the contrast.

The two emulsions are different; neither is "better". HP5 is more
contrasty than TriX out of the box so it will push contrastier. TriX's
grain structure hasn't changed much over the decades so the larger grain
shouldn't seem as intrusive as HP5's. Since HP5 has more of a "T" style
grain, when pushed it resembles (IMHO) high-speed color neg grain.

If you are after contrast HC-110 or equivalent might be a better choice
than D-76. D-76 is pretty neutral and very kind to midtones. But
processing method also plays a role. D-76 in a small tank will yield
different results than dip-n-dunk with nitrogen burst agitation.

Speed, like contrast and grain is relative and subjective. Some people
regularly pull 400 to 200 for a wider latitude. Some people push 400 to
800 or 1600 for available light or monster grain.

Remember the first rule of photography: "Light interacts with silver
salts; all else is negotiable."

Hope this helps,

Jon

That would be EI. ASA (now ISO) has a strict definition.

pushing increases the overall contrast by means of move most lower
value zones to high value zones, hence increases brightness.


The lower zones don't change much at all with longer processing (other
than increasing fog base). All you do it increase contrast.

that's kinda of human feeling of 'speed'.


No, it isn't.

please answer the queston directly. thanks.


Please do some tests and answer it for yourself.
