    100 sheet boxes of HP5 in 8x10 would be excellent for sure. I hate 25 sheets especially when going on the road.

    They originally intended 24 sheets for 12 holders, but tossed in an extra sheet for that occasional mistake......

    Actually, IIRC FP4 and HP5 are available in 100 sheet boxes (see Freestyle). Of course that is for 4x5 (or 5x4) but, to have a 50 sheet box of 8x10 or 50 or 100 sheet box of 5x7...now that would be nice. Funny though, can load the entire box of 25 - 4x5, but do not have that problem with 5x7 or 8x10.

    But then again, use Efke and it does come 50 to a box, 4x5-5x7-8x10. Glad to have so many choice though...that IS the best part.

    One problem . . . then there would be 4 straggler sheets to deal with. I'd have to buy two more filmholders for those. This hobby is already too expensive. ;-)

    One really should have 25 holders and always purchase 50 sheets.

    It's amazing how important context can be...

    I don't use sheet film.

    As a result, when I saw this thread title, my first thought was ---- Why would it be useful to have photographic paper in a 26 sheet box????

    :o

    Why not just go back to the way film was boxed many years ago - one dozen (12), two dozen (24), and one gross (144). This was common in the 40's and before.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
