    Great...

    They say it can be used with pinhole camera, but also to print black and white slides.

    I want some! Amazing that they would come out with such a product at this time. Add a monobath, and you've almost got Polaroid. Is it perhaps a byproduct of the ImPossible Project R&D?

    Neat...but I am trying to figure out why? Who is going to buy it to such a degree that it could be profitable? The other direct positive paper (was it Efke or Adox or Fotokemika or sumthin'?) did not last long at all at Freestyle. I wonder if they have actually formulated a new emulsion or if they are repackaging whatever is left of that other one. I can't imagine a use I would have for this, as it is fixed grade high contrast. Perhaps making black and white prints from enlarged low-contrast litho positives printed from color negatives would be a good use. I cannot imagine that a fixed-grade, high-contrast paper would be a good choice for printing from slides. Also, why is it not being retailed?

    P.S. More info: http://www.harmanexpress.com/prods/1...TIVE-PAPER.htm. (£27.42 plus shipping for 10 sheets of 11x14 fiber-based. OUCH!!!)

    Looks pretty cool. I'd like to shoot some of that in my pinhole cameras.

    Awesome!!! Time to shoot E100G once again! I loved the look of the Efke/Ilford paper that was recently discontinued!! I am so happy to see this.

    Anyone got plans for an 11x14 pinhole?

    The Efke was also extremely high contrast but this could be fixed sometimes by preflashing.....

    Looks like a fun product for pinhole or toy camera, but is it only available in UK?

    I think it's not really a new product.
    This paper existed yet but was called Efke positive paper or IMAGO.
    It was elaborated in cooperation with Efke for two womens that work with big giant pinhole cameras: http://www.camera-imago.de/

    I am not sure, but maybe Simon will confirm, or not
