    Availability of 11x14" films - where ? next Ilford ULF run?

    Hello,

    I am keen to get 100 or so sheets of 11x14" film for my new camera (8x10 Sinar P conversion). I'd like to keep with what I have been successful with thus far in 8x10 which is both Ilford FP4 and the cheaper Arista Ultra EDU 200.

    I have found HP5 on the net and also Efke - I print in platinum and would prefer to steer clear of the HP5, what characteristic does the Efke have in Pyro ? or a higher contrast development with something like D19 ?

    Either that, or where do ULF shooters get their film from ?

    I found it listed here, but it doesn't appear to be for sale...

    When does the next Ilford ULF run go ahead ?

    Really want to get this camera working

    Nick

    Nick...Go to the View Camera Store who is one of the sponsers. Owned by Fred Newman and he usually has FP4+ in stock. He is in Arizona. Also you might try Freestyle in California. They carry Efke and it is usually in stock.

    thanks,

    the view camera store didn't come up in google searches

    I've emailed them - interested in trying the Efke regardless - we'll see

    Check with William at Glazer's, too. It's possible they have FP4, but also an order in for T Max 400.

    Nick, I just shot some Efke 25 in 11x14. It is only one sheet from a recent trip to Joshua Tree NP. here in California. It was very blustery the whole time I was there and only exposed one sheet. I always develop in Pyrocat-HD and use the 2:2:100 dilution and develop one at a time in trays. I will have to check my notes and I will post the times/temp later after I develop the sheet tonight.
    I have used the FP4+ and it is great in 11x14. The Efke 25, 100 is in stock at Freestyle.

    View Camera Store and Glazers out of stock ...

    TMY out of stock in 11x14"

    Might try the Efke from Freestyle - I have Pyro PMK here (and HC110, D19, D76 and Rollei HS developers) - worth a crack huh

    Nick, I love the 8x10 negatives that I get with the Efke 25 in Pyro.

    Nick, just finished the Efke PL-25 negative. I developed for 9 minutes in Pyrocat-HD. 5 minute presoak, 30 seconds agitation, then 5 seconds of agitation every 30 seconds, water stop, 4 minute fix. Developed in a tray. The negative is a plus 1 negative that I will print in carbon. It is great to see an 11x14 ISO 25 negative! I did shoot it at box speed. I have found this to be the best with my developer and printing process.

    I wish the Arista.EDU Ultra was available in 200 in 11x14, but they only make the 100 speed. As that's one of the less-expensive options for the format, short of APHS, it's what I've used. Soup it in Pyrocat HD, 1:1:100
