    Does this work? Any one done it? Any tips?

    I'm interested in making black and white transparencies for projection. Flexibility and convenience are more important than ultimate quality. Multiple copies a plus too. (otherwise I'd go reversal process)

    Thanks, JP

    Sure does. Can be done with any B/W film...no experience with this one...but slow is easier to work with than fast. Sandwich emulsion-to-emulsion and expose. As you might expect, this is often preferred over direct reversal as the original is untouched and you now have a copy.

    I'm thinking with ortho film It would be a lot easier because you could work with a safe light.

    Yes, good point. But check on how sensitive it is. I use ortho litho APHS which is about paper speed and safe under my red lights whereas I've seen fogging on my ADOX Ortho 25.
