    Status of a New Direct Positive Paper?

    Some of us had gotten quite used to the old Harman DPP, but now that it's gone, we're using up the last bits we've squirreled away. I'd like to hear from Simon what progress has been made in pursuing a replacement.

    As an alternative, I've also heard from the grapevine that coating silver gelatin emulsion on black paper can produce a positive image, in the way that tintypes work by the silver being more reflective than the darker support underneath. So perhaps a special emulsion isn't needed, just a black paper base?

    Anyway, that's my inquiry for New Year's Day 2015.

    I wonder if it is possible to get some Imago from Macodirect.

    We are continuing to work toward re-introducing a product. I should be in a position to give an update very soon.

    The Imago material also is limited and will run out some day.

    Can't wait to hear the news as I have a full kit built around the use of DPP.

    I actually use the macodirect DPP and I am happy with the results. However it is not (yet) available in FB. They can do custom sizes as well.

    There was 8x10 DPP before, I'm sure there will be again.
