    Kodak Endura Metallic - interest in sheets?

    Just an idea:

    Ag Photographic sell a 8" roll of Metallic for £120. Could we pool our resources to buy and cut down a roll?

    13 boxes of 25 8x10 sheets would be £9.50 per box.

    Obviously we'd need someone with a large enough darkroom to cut the roll down and maybe we'd all need to supply a box & black bag. I put this in the UK forums but I suppose anyone could pitch in.

    Any interest?
    Steve.

    At £10 per box, I for one would certainly be interested - You'd also need to factor in postage, say around £2.50 if packaging is supplied by the buyer.

    I would love a box of this! I had a sample of this paper and it looked fantastic.

    I'd pitch in for this as well at £10 a box plus postage. That's 4 of us and only 9 more to go.

    That's a fantastic idea. I would like a box. I would be prepared to take two if that would help to make it happen.
    Please keep me informed.

    One problem - the paper has been updated now to Endura Metallic VC, ie: optimised for exposure digitally which means if you optically expose and balance colour for skin tones apparently the shadows can develop a cyan cast......but

    - we haven't actually tried it [optical exposure] yet; and
    - I have a 50" roll here and the label states "for digital or optical exposure"

    so maybe the jury is still out.

    I run an analog darkroom here in Australia and we hand print Kodak Metalic VC without problems.
