    They will be small but beautiful. Are you thinking to leave the lens or replace ir with a pinhole as I did?

    That's awesome Ralph! I was thinking of leaving the lens on for starters - what do you think? Any hints on how I mount the paper? Your new book sounds amazing BTW...

    Considering the paper is already a very slow EI 3 or so according to the posts here, starting out with a camera with lens might not be such a bad idea...

    mesh:

    I got a bit fed up with cutting up and loading plate holder just for test shots, so I tried making a direct positive roll film. This was very easy and worked perfectly.

    I cut a pre-flashed 11 X 14" sheet into 2 1/4" strips. Obviously these are a bit thick (I used the RC paper) but about half the length of a roll film. I rolled them up in some discarded spools & backing papers. Tape the leader where the arrows start, save wasting the first two inches and you'll get at least five 2 1/4" square frames. No sure I'd want to stick it in a hassleblad back (even if I had one :rolleyes but in a folding roll film camera (or a box camera) with a red window it works fine. I rolled up and processed half a dozen. It means you can do the pre-flash and development of a strip (or whole sheet) of test shots in one go and keep things consistent.

    Heard back from Harman on shipping this to the US--35 UKP shipping for a 9 UKP box of 25 sheets of 4x5" paper. Ouch!

    I'll ask if maybe we might do better with a larger group order.

    I ordered this stuff from Harman Direct as well, in the US it wasn't too bad and it got here fast.

    I used it like sheet film, and the results are stunning. Hot contrast yet very controllable. Unlike the Efke stuff. I am in love with it!

    Even for skin tones, the hard part is making someone stay perfectly still for 1 second or more.

    Nice result. Are those strawberries? It must be really orthochromatic, which I guess makes sense, since you can use a red safelight, no?

    Thanks, those are strawberries, yes. The entire series is up on flickr (here).

    It is very orthochromatic, which is why i decided to use strawberries. It was shot in my Crown Graphic, Sironar-S 135mm wide open. Develop in Dektol. Fin.

    And two more I took to see the extreme ortho properties of this paper:
