    Besides HP5, does anyone know where I could find 11x14 film anymore? All my searches came up blank. I have a box of BPF200 in the freezer. Was just about to start shooting tests. 6 months ago there seemed to be several sources, now none.

    Ilford's ULF film run has just commenced. Have a look a View Camera Store etc. for these (it'll mean a few months' wait, though).

    Have you considered trying Xray film?

    Efke 100 is a damn-fine film. I've shot it in 8x10 and 4x5, and in Pyrocat-HD, that stuff sings! Printed onto Lodima(azo) G3 in MAS amidol, great tones, and once "set" for your ISO rating(I use ISO 50), its pretty much good to go.

    Thanks!

    I am using the Pyrocat HD developer for the Bergger film I have and will be ordering the Lodima paper when I settle on size.

    There is a good thread on LFPF on using Xray film for ULF. Have you read it?

    Really, really cheap alternative to "regular" B&W film...
