Hi David,
Thanks for your response and info. I am going to send my exposed film to
dwayne's in Kansas (, which, as far as I know, is the last
lab that is capable of processing Kod 40 and will stop at the end of the
year. Dwayne's offers a 3 stop max for pushing which is why I'm posing this

I will also be shooting with a stereoscopic lens, so let me know if you have
any tips on that front. The lens I am using is not terribly fast (f2.8),
but I might abandon the stereo in favor of faster lenses if these tests
don't pan out.
