    Has anyone ever made contact prints from color transparencies? I wonder if it's next to impossible?

    Not imposible, but the transparencies look awsome, no need to print them.... [​IMG]

    Yes! Astia looks great on Fuji Type-35 (R-print material). Unfortunately Astia is no longer available in 8x10" (I've got about 95 sheets left and am a bit peeved that my lab messed up two of them today, but in general they're a good lab, and fortunately the shots weren't too vital, and they gave me a decent refund, beyond the cost of materials and processing), and Fuji Type-35 seems on the way out, and the chemistry for doing it at home is virtually unavailable in the U.S. Meanwhile, I take the sheets to dr5, which is still offering Fuji R-prints.

    Of course there is a need to print them, prints being more easy to display and give to other people than transparencies.
