    Can anyone direct me to threads containing info on Ilfochrome. Looking for a source for Ilfochrome to shoot in a 5X7 LF camera.

    At this point it's probably cheaper just to shoot 5x7 slide film than to try to work with Ilfochrome. If you can't find 5x7 slide film cut down 8x10.

    Ilfochrome is a printing paper and processing chemistry, not a film.

    Right, but some people shoot it in camera for some pretty cool results.
