    The standard XX products these days are 35mm and both double and single perforated 16mm cine film, Eastman 5222/7222. The start of a recent James Bond film (Casino Royale) was filmed with this material, as was almost all of Schindler's List. Typical developer for cine use would be D-96. The 35mm stock is widely used as still-camera film by bulk-loading into standard cassettes.

    Special order Eastman Double-X in 4x5 sheet.

    Hi everyone,

    There's a chance that Kodak, or rather Eastman Kodak? Whoever makes the movie stock film Double-X Will be able to make a special run of 4x5 sheet film.

    It's a really beautiful film, it has a look all its own. It tends to have sort of the look of old Tri-X and Plus-X mixed together and is relatively grainy. Although on a movie screen, the green isn't so terrible, I know that sometimes in 35mm stills, the green can be distracting in large prints of 11x17 or larger.

    However using 4x5 sheets the grain would be significantly reduced!

    SO! I spoke to Keith, at Canham Cameras because he often works with kodak on special order cut film sheet sizes. He spoke to Kodak, and says that there's actually a real possibility, Kodak wants to ensure that there's enough interest before they actually do the math as it's complicated because they have to work with both the movie stock production company and the normal cut sheet film company who are different from each other.

    So if you're interested for real, and want to know actual pricing etc. I need you to go to this website fill out the form and tell them roughly how many boxes you would take, I would assume that Kodak will make the same kind of boxes they normally do of 50 sheets per box.

    Please just guesstimate so that he has a good incentive and we can get more information on pricing. Assume the price per box would be AROUND $100/50 sheet box. Go to this website...

    http://canhamcameras.com/kodakform.html

    And fill out the form. Thanks let's make this happen!

    Hey Jeff,

    Just saw this thread, I made my own as well

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/124674-special-order-eastman-double-x-4x5-sheet.html

    I was the one who originally approached Keith about having this happen, I'm glad to see it's taken off well

    That's one way to distract people from the otherwise obvious grain of Double-X ;-)

    Stone didn't develop the DXN carefully enough. This material in 35 mm can give grainless and very sharp results in 8x10 prints. Built in low contrast helps in keeping the highlights under control. Very flexible material. It is made to run in high speed cameras, it is just stronger, less scratch prone, with AH layer which looks like from Tmax. I would prefer to have it in 120 format, if the price could be kept sane.
