    But wouldn't washing a film before exposing it also remove a lot of other good things, like the sensitization dyes and the substances that boost sensitivity?

    Sensitization dyes work during exposure not development. Washing them out is fine as long as you've already exposed the film.

    It looks like there's some Rollei IR film available at B&H.
    Save the Earth. It's the only planet with chocolate.

    But you want to remove the antihalation dyes before shooting too.

    Not just 4x5. Get some 5x7, too. I'd shoot it. I couldn't buy up five million sheets, but I'd buy a pack and shoot it happily.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Fair enough. Since I shoot moderately large (6x7, 4x5) films, the halation effects in Aura just look like softness rather than glow so I'd prefer to go without.
