    Yeah I saw that too !! Got an encouraging regular email bulletin from Vanbar just today that read:

    Hallelujah! HARMAN Direct Positive Photographic Paper

    Many moons ago we received the first ILFORD pinhole camera, we eagerly inspected the box contents with dreams of long exposures and surreal imagery. To our delight, contained within this vessel of creativity, was a lone pack of HARMAN Direct Positive Photo Paper. That's right, photo paper that you expose like any other, but with the 'negative' effect. With our artistic juices flowing we quickly contacted the local HARMAN people to seek more of this hidden gem. Our dreams, it seems, were dashed as this item was not available separately here in Australia.

    We asked politely, a lot, for this to change. We're pleased to announce it has! Direct positive is now available in 4x5" 20 sheet packs. Hallelujah!""

    glad to hear that it's back so fast!

    Ian, this interests me! I have a dream of building my own bw photobooth in the future and information like this would certainly help. do you know of where I can find more info on this?

    It is not back fast, but seemingly on offer for the first time. In Australia. That means supply from an ended production.

    This note is for Mr. Simon Galley of Ilford. Simon, do you have any progress report or update on the situation regarding re-engineering/re-manufacturing a direct positive paper? Many of us are down to our last bits of supply on hand, and would like to see a new direct positive paper on the market.

    Personally, if I had my wishes granted, I'd like to see an RC-base direct positive paper, along with FB, as this would be nice for on-location processing in portable darkroom box cameras.

    I also hope that if you were able to get the formula that the paper will distributed more widely and would it be possible to introduce a mat version of the paper glossy is nice but mat even nicer.

    Again thank you
    Simon, I wish you all rhe success in the world for this. Sounds like a full-service Tier1 issue,which is always difficult and should always be covered by full disclosure agreements up front.thanks for the info.

    Well..with high contrast, slow speed, and lacking spectral sensitivity, oh AND the need for some kind of portable dark tent at the least.

    For some applications (I can think of one use I'd make of this, especially if it toned well in brown or sepia) it would be a great product, but not exactly a substitute for Polaroid.

    but I was thinking of making a daylight developing tank for it!
