    Mike -- I have a box of 100 sheets of 5x7 Plus-X that I thought I would use, and have not. It has been kept in my fridge since I bought it last year. If interested, I would be happy to sell it.

    If you are willing to cut it down there is always someone selling arial roll film that they claim to be plus-x on ebay. It looks like it is on a thinner base, so that may be a problem. If it is any good the price is certainly right though.

    That isn't the same emulsion. Those guys will say anything to sell their film...

    I'm still looking for sellers. I got one box of 5x7 Plus-X so far.....

    Thanks.

    I may have some 8x10 plus x I bought a Calumet in Orange Co a while ago. I will have to look to see if I have any unopened boxes left.

    Bumping.....

    Lee, did you happen to find any? Some 8x10 would be AWESOME. I was getting so desperate, I was going to tape together four 4x5 sheets.....

    I have 1 box of 5x7 sold to me for a good price, so if any of you have some please let me if you're willing to part with it. I have 4-5 boxes of 4x5 so I'd really like to get some more 5x7 and 8x10 (or larger).

    Thanks to all.

    -Mike

    it is a polyester base and is a bit more red sensitive than regular plus-x
    mrfoto1 is one of the people on ebay selling 9 1/2" rolls of the stuff ... the only problem i have found with it vs plus-x is that it is a PIA to cut down, and these days you have to cut it yourself, since his guy who cut it for him stopped :sad:
