    Does anyone else here print of the Ilfoflex material? http://www.ilford.com/en/products/ilfocolor/ilfoflex.asp
    This is a stunning Ra-4 product but it seems so few people use it.
    its made by the same people who make ilfochrome and while it is no substitute for ilfochrome it is the same base material and has the same super high gloss.
    if printing ilfochrome and including some work from negatives in a exhibition it only seems natural to me to print using this material. but here in Australia i don't see any commercial applications of it. Whats happening in other parts of the world? does anyone else here use this? or know of a lab where this is a standard material?

    Stephen,
    I had a look at this product and it does look great. I guess the biggest hurdle is that it's only available in sheet form in 11 x14 in clear base. Not many people wish to mess with rolls. I did think about it. However, I will still shoot trannies and print on ciba.
