    and here's another distributor--

    http://www.laserreflections.com/film.html

    Would the 4x5" panchromatic plates be the same as 102mm x 127mm PFG-03C Plates for $220? They also come in blue-green sensitive, which may be just an ordinary orthochromatic emulsion.

    Still costly, but if the materials are the same, maybe it's better just to order them from someplace that is already selling them in quantity, or alternately, maybe this is another market that J&C might consider expanding into--holography supplies.

    I know plates were used in Russia for serious photography until surprisingly recently (like the 1950s or maybe even later), but it's hard to believe that they could survive making plates for pictorial photography in the post-Soviet era.
    These are the same plates. The price difference is due to the recent nose dive of the dollar versus the Euro. I would anticipate the US dollar prices listed to go up the next time they get a shipment in and have to pay for it in dollars. At the 1.2 rate the dollar was at a few months ago it works out to $220.

    I would suggest those interested try these in 4x5 from Geola.

    dry plates

    Oh well, I'm sorry to say I'm going to have to pass based on the price. I'd love to see what folks do with them if anyone goes for it though. Thanks for the legwork guys,

    Yup, at that price, I'll pass on it as well.
