    I posted this over on the f295 group but thought I would try here also.

    I am converting an old camera to Zone Plate and am looking for a source for 35mm Lith film for the actual Zone Plate. I know I have seen it around but I cannot find it now. Any suggestions?

    I can get it in sheet film but it seems like quite a waste. I have considered shooting several on a single sheet but think I would have a problem since only one would truely be centered. I don't know if the slight distortion would cause problems or not.

    Does Kodak still make Kodalith? Check Freestyle they used to seel a good variety of lith film.

    Claire,

    Thanks for your response.

    Both Freestyle and Photowarehouse sell ortho lith film in several sizes of sheet film but no longer seem to carry the 35mm roll size. Another member here has contacted me privately and is sending me a couple of rolls. This is a great community!

    If you'd like a roll of 35mm Kodalith, send me your address. I'll charge you $4.00, which includes postage. I have a pretty good supply.

    I can send you 46mm kodalith (single perf), perfect for rolling into your 127 cameras. Just a thought, contact me offline if interested.

    Tim,

    Thanks for the offer, I do appreciate it. I got some Ektagraphic HC film from another member here, so I am pretty much good to go.
