    It appears that Magnachrom will have some substantial publication delay. The article I wrote about the 14x17 Lotus was in two parts, with the second one scheduled for the next issue of Magnachrom.

    With the agreement of Magnachrom's publisher I decided to put Part 2 on my site. Here I talk about ULF logistics, and my first experiences in contact printing, and the work I have done in the past two years on in-camera Ilfochromes, but this time on a ULF scale

    You can find the entire article right here

    Enjoy!

    Cheers

    Marco you mention I guess X-ray film? Where are you getting it in Europe? Do you know of a source of lith film like Freestyles?

    You also mention cutting down 12x20 to 12x17. Why?

    In part 2 he mentions using 12x16 with special snap in baffles for the 14x17 holder, maybe for 12x17 film he just doesn't use the end baffles. In any case seems like an interesting size. Great article Marco, thanks for posting the conclusion.

    Thank you, Colin: now I can prove that at least _one_ person has read the article ...

    ... you are 100% correct: I tried the 12x16 holders (that I use for the 12x16 Ilfochrome paper, they are the 14x17 holders internally reduced to 12x16 in the way you so clearly describe) and I can fit a 12x17 film in them.

    Nick, I can get some X-ray film from a doctor friend of mine, but I was unable to find an on-line supplier in Europe. I am aware of an on-line supplier in the US that sells 14x17 X-ray Fuji Film but I never tried it.

    Has anybody ever ordered through Quad City?

    Cheers!

    I read the first parts months ago. I don't remember breakfast most days -))

    When I tried discussing film with various US suppliers I got the impression they didn't like dealing with the border. That was just to Canada.

    I guess I could fall down and try and find a cute doctor/nurse to help me.
