    Thanks Keith!

    What are the things (while setting up my Arca Swiss LF) I 'll have to take care of, when working with each of those films?

    Nothing to worry about, just meter as you would for slide, they do not have the latitude of print film. Experiment and enjoy! Oh and toss a slightly overexposed fp100c image in boiling water and pull the emulsion off, it's good fun!

    I recall that there's a way to dissolve away the backing, but it's not nearly as easy as lifting the fp100c emulsion. You can do it with fp100c with hot water. I tried that on fp100b and... nada. But some enterprising people have figured out an acid bath or such. I recall the thread was here on apug a few months ago.

    One experiment I've been meaning to retry is to enlarge a b&w positive to fp100c, and then lift that. If the enlarger balance is just right, I think you'd get what you want, a kinda-b&w lift. I tried it once but the color was off (the blacks looked a bit purple) and I didn't have time to play with filtering. A projected b&w slide looks b&w but, thanks to the enlarger bulb, it's not. If the light source is exactly the right color temp, I think it should be possible.

    Anyway, all things are possible if you put the time and thought into it.... Land himself would be doing precisely these kinds of experiments, just for fun, if he were alive today.

    Thread link on this process

    It wasn't for an emulsion Lift Per se but a Chlorine removal of the light filter on the back of the NEG so you can scan. Thread link:> http://www.apug.org/forums/archive/i...p/t-76978.html
    the Key to being able to scan through the orange filtered backing is to use plastic packing tape and press the edges on the negative backing to seal it well! then not to Roll with too much pressure on the moistened (not soaked) bleach pad! you can then scan your negatives and edit them accordingly without having to lift the emulsion or to get a preview before lifting. The Negatives preserve amazing shadow detail in Zones 1-3, particularly with underexposed positives! Good luck! I am working on a box to hold the drying negatives separate in the field to preserve them for later processing!
