    I am looking for a film that will work under the enlarger for enlarged negs for contact printing. I don't have a camera bigger than 8x10 and would like something larger now and then. Any suggestions? Kodak has discontinued their duping film.

    See my article on Negatives by Reversal at http://unblinkingeye.com/Articles/NbyR/nbyr.html. This process works best with negatives of normal contrast, but if you are willing to work with it you can duplicate even difficult negatives. Since you are bleaching away most of the silver anyway, you don't need the more expensive films--you can use the cheap Arista APH ortho/litho.
