    Hi everyone,

    I did ask this before, but I will try it again:

    Does any one have 20x24 POP? I would like to buy several sheets!

    I would like to buy a box, but I want to try them out before I commit to it.

    Thanks,
    Tsuyoshi

    One question:

    How long does POP last? Do they have a long-shelf life?

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    I believe that special sizes (not 8x10 or 11x14) Centennial POP is only made by special order and only at s certain time of year. I doubt you'd be able to order just a few sheets of it. But if so, you'd need to contact Chicago Albumen directly and ask about it. B&S doesn't have it listed.

    Cheers,
    Richard

    Out of curiosity, do you own or have access to a 20x24" camera or are you using enlarged negs?

    Here's the info on ordering POP in non-standard sizes, though they list 20x24" as a standard size--

    My understanding is that 20x24 is a standard size according to CAW website. I just don't want to buy a box of 25 sheet for almost $200 yet...

    I am just simply using them for my 7x17 negatives (by making 3 8x20 out of one sheet). I do not have an access to 20x24 camera. Though I think I saw it at 68 degrees though...

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    Yes, they have a 20x24" Lotus at Sixty-Eight Degrees. Eric used to own THREE of them, but sold off two.

    building 20x24 camera

    I built my own 20x24 camera for under $1500. The film holders are a different issue. Check out my post dated 9-30-05 in the camera building and modification seciton of apug. It is posted under "Buulf Cameras". Buulf stands for Butt Ugly Ultra Large Format Camera.

    I posted pictures of my 16x20, but the 20x24 is the same design and only slightly larger. I can post pics of the 20x24 if you need.
